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

    Has any one heard of any offers from this audition a while back?


    I wouldn't expect any offers from OSF to go out until mid-august at the earliest.

    best friend has a principle offer that she received about a month ago

    I spoke with someone yesterday that has a full season offer, and a principal role in Hairspray.

    breek792 08/26/2018  8:07pm

    @breek792 that’s awesome!!! It makes me irrationally happy considering I don’t actually know who you are. I’m up for Indecent (though haven’t heard back from Casting in a little while so am presuming it’s a no go) and I’ve been following this thread since you started it months ago. Congrats!!

    NYCgirl 08/27/2018  2:29pm

    NYCGirl, I'm up for Indecent too and was told that they may be back in August/September for more auditions. Not giving up hope yet.

    Congrats, breek!

    dudeactor 08/27/2018  3:27pm

    thanks guys 💕💕💕i hope you hear something about incident soon !! it def sounds like they just starting to role out non company member contracts and from what it looks like that show opens later in the season so i would hang tight and keep your fingers crossed 🤞🏻I have an asked Fishel he excepted my contract yet I’m trying to make sure it doesn’t conflict with a A tentative shooting schedule for a new series i’ve been cast in but i hope everything works out , especially since Our shoot in the fall is in Vancouver so if we need to shoot again in 2019 it will be close by to oregon !!

    breek792 08/27/2018  4:32pm

    NYCGirl, I'm curious when/what is the last your heard.from casting re: Indecent. Thanks!

    dudeactor 08/28/2018  12:40pm

    Hey dudeactor! It sounds like you have more up to date intel than I do. Last I heard from Casting was late June when I emailed to check if I was still in the mix. She said they were still in the process of season casting (sounds like they still are!) but I should feel free to check in late July if I hadn’t heard anything or got another offer. I was in tech/opening late July but sent two check in emails in mid/late August and haven’t gotten a response recently. When did you last hear?
