Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    Anyone know when we should start hearing about offers? I know today was final day of callbacks so post as you hear! Specifically interested in Anne Marie track. Thanks!


    When you wish upon a BUMP!

    bump for Anna

    dancerfirst 05/11/2018  4:12pm

    I’m also interested if anyone knows when we might hear? I forgot to ask the monitor but I believe the boats start rehearsal August/September time?

    Joaniebaby22 05/11/2018  5:49pm

    Not sure if it will be the same, but when I worked for DCL I got my offer one week after auditioning. I auditioned in April and went on the ship in September. So I would think if it's for the ships starting around that time, you guys would hear soon. Hope that helps at least a little!

    thisismyusername 05/11/2018  5:55pm

    Monitor said calls earliest will start next week, and will continue about 2-3 weeks following

    Tompc011 05/11/2018  6:11pm

    For my last DCL contract I got my mainstage singer offer 1 week after my final callback

    Okayokay 05/15/2018  12:05pm

    I'm aware most people who have worked with DCL said they heard no sooner than a full week after their callback, but BUMP to keep the thread alive for any news.

    UncleMame 05/15/2018  7:28pm

    My agent sent over an email from casting saying they are finalizing casting and asked if I was interested in a certain track. I have worked for DCL before, so I'm sure this is why they sent this email but it seems like they are getting close to sending out offers.

    dancerfirst 05/15/2018  7:48pm

    Got a call from my agent today saying casting said I’d be getting an offer, not sure what tracks for though

    Okayokay 05/15/2018  7:55pm

    Has anyone who received an unofficial gotten their official offer yet? I had expected it to come by now since it’s been over a week since the unofficial

    Okayokay 05/23/2018  2:12pm

    any Female offers out???

    sassyandclassy 05/23/2018  4:18pm

    Judging from previous posts during different casting times. It seems to take 10-14 days for offers to even start coming out. So it should be soonish. Hopefully.

    BrooklynB 05/23/2018  4:26pm

    Someone from Disney casting just emailed me and said that as of today all vocalist offers have been made

    waitingforcallbacks 05/30/2018  1:47pm

    Did you reach out to them?

    Up every morning at six 05/30/2018  2:04pm

    I just got my official offer earlier today. Good luck y’all

    Okayokay 05/30/2018  3:46pm

    Okayokay if you don’t mind me asking was your offer for vocalist, dancer, or character?

    dancerdisneyenthusiast 05/30/2018  3:50pm

    Any offers been made for the Anne Marie track?

    MichaelScott 05/30/2018  4:04pm

    Which ship also?

    Tompc011 05/30/2018  4:08pm

    For the wonder, main stage vocalist

    Okayokay 05/30/2018  4:10pm

    Waitingforcallbacks can you elaborate on your email?

    Tompc011 05/30/2018  4:28pm


    MichaelScott 05/30/2018  5:21pm

    Has anyone heard anything about character contracts?!

    wcwolves11 05/30/2018  5:57pm

    Are vocalist tacks different than characters in their shows tracks?

    Nonequityiskillingmeslowly 05/31/2018  8:23am

    Bump on more info or offers?

    audition_update_user 05/31/2018  3:09pm

    Bumping one final time. I have a hard time understanding this email saying all vocalist contracts are out. Did you reach out to casting? Do you have an agent that reached out on your behalf? Im also wondering if maybe a lot of current cast extended or if only agent offers have gone out.

    MichaelScott 06/04/2018  1:35pm

    Just got an offer for the Magic! So they are not done people!!! Keep the hope alive!

    Up every morning at six 06/06/2018  2:15pm

    Offer out for the Magic as well!! Congrats :)

    MichaelScott 06/06/2018  3:13pm

    weird question...any chance the last 4 digits of the phone numbers that called with offers were 6588? I have a missed call with no message just wondering if I should call it back...

    Tompc011 06/06/2018  5:22pm

    Received the offer via agent through email!

    MichaelScott 06/06/2018  6:39pm

    Congrats! Are these offers for Character Performers or Vocalists?

    makinghermark 06/07/2018  9:16am

    Thank you! Mainstage performer offer!

    MichaelScott 06/07/2018  11:12am

    Offer received but have to turn down for personal reasons....devastated but hey that’s how life work huh

    JimmyD 06/07/2018  11:30am

    any mainstage offers out for Magic or Fantasy for those that don't have an agent?

    Tompc011 06/08/2018  12:35pm

    Official offer call for MainStage performer on the Wonder last Thursday. I'm sure offers are still going out.

    Iplaydressupforaliving did your offer say what day rehearsals will start? Anyone else heard anything for the Wonder starting in September? I know Magic is probably about finished since they start rehearsals in August

    Meow93 07/24/2018  6:59pm

    Did anyone that received offers go to the call on July 9th or just the one in May?
