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

  • ask to come to the movement call itr.

    Anyone know when they said offers might come out? Are there more rounds of calls?

    Miss Vintage 05/18/2018  4:47pm

    @Diva is this the first movement call you were asked to attend, or is this another one in addition to the one on Wednesday?

    I auditioned on Tuesday at Pearl 519 and went to the callback at Pearl 500 Friday (yesterday), did anyone hear anything ITR yesterday?

    OhWhereIsMyHairbrush 05/19/2018  7:06am

    Please post with offers!

    Heisenberg32 05/19/2018  9:14am

    Has anyone done more than sing from book, movement call, and callback with requested material?

    Imastar4 05/19/2018  9:33am

    Some people had initials yesterday, and moved at the end of the day. Nothing else was given in the room. :) fingers crossed!

    Miss Vintage 05/19/2018  10:06am

    What? They said nobody would be dancing after the open call. Callbacks were itr there tooch but they said Friday's appointment were it- no movement after that. I feel like there's some faulty information here

    Heisenberg32 05/19/2018  10:35am

    Itr there initially* typo

    Heisenberg32 05/19/2018  10:37am

    After the open call they asked people to come to a movement call later in day. After the movement, they emailed callbacks with prepared material and that was on Friday.

    Imastar4 05/19/2018  10:48am

    Basically just post with offers

    carbs 05/19/2018  10:52am

    Nope, nothing faulty here. Some people had INITIAL appts on Friday, aka never went on Tuesday. Some were ask to move later that day. I’m sure that if you moved on Tuesday, they simply didn’t need to see you again.

    Anyways, post when offers come out! :)

    I have a feeling that since some tours aren't until like October, offers will take a long time.

    Heisenberg32 05/27/2018  1:30am

    I still wanna keep this thread alive

    OhWhereIsMyHairbrush 05/27/2018  9:15am


    And yes I think they may take a little bit of time with casting, but I think there is potential for more contracts to be added and two of the contracts already conflict so they are definitely needing 2+ casts and I would think they would want to secure at least a roster of people that can go in and out.

    So we are thinking there was a dance call from the appointments that had about 16 people and once from the open call that had about that many?

    BassBelter 05/27/2018  9:52pm

    I still wanna keep this thread alive

    OhWhereIsMyHairbrush 05/27/2018  10:34pm


    Miss Vintage 05/28/2018  11:13am

    @Bb1234 I agree with what you’ve said about 2+ casts being needed.
    Also the first contract starts the end of July and reading previous posts Casting can sometimes take a little while with over a month of time to worry about sending out the first set of contracts(which I totally understand).

    The dance call, from the open call, had a cut after so if I could guesstimate how many were kept after the cut.... I would say we had about closer to 25ish kept. I know it was more than 16 but I can’t recall the exacts.

    Also please keep bumping to keep the thread alive since that’s important for us! I just wanted to share my thoughts on the previous post! ♥️

    Hey friends! Got word that they are on hold for a moment on this and hoping to have offers for the contract starting at the end of July by the end of this next week. So by this Friday, hopefully!

    BassBelter 06/02/2018  10:27am

    So does this mean they are only casting 1 tour at a time?

    Imastar4 06/02/2018  6:27pm

    Sunday Bump! Love this thread, keep up the positivity and news!

    OhWhereIsMyHairbrush 06/03/2018  5:03pm

    Bump. Good luck to everyone!

    theatrebum 06/03/2018  5:48pm

    I'm not certain if they are casting one tour at a time or not... I just know that the July rehearsal tour is the priority as it is coming up. They will obviously have to cast the ones later in the year at relatively the same time/with different casts and the contracts overlap.

    BassBelter 06/03/2018  10:05pm


    Songstressed 06/04/2018  9:52am

    Wait we’re you told you were on hold? Or you just heard that things were on hold

    Miss Vintage 06/04/2018  11:23am

    Oh not that I specifically was on hold. It was minimal info, but I just heard that they were working some last minute details out with the cruise line maybe? And they were trying to get contracts for the July gig out soon...sorry I don’t have a lot of details!
