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

    There are more Griz appointments Friday

    Yummy 08/08/2018  6:07pm

    Are the Friday Griz appointments initial or a callback?

    Juicy1104 08/09/2018  11:49am

    Any callbacks out for next week after singing callbacks on 8/8?

    Broadwaydreamer 08/09/2018  2:19pm


    Smirkenstocks 08/09/2018  3:13pm

    Not sure Juicy...I know my agent submitted me, but I also went to the EPA and Felicia Rudolph was in the room.

    Yummy 08/09/2018  3:52pm

    Callback to come to invited dance call on Monday. I was at the initial female dancers ecc, went in and sang for them yesterday (8/8) and got an e-mail today (8/9) to come back next week

    TinyDancer 08/09/2018  8:16pm

    I give up then. I’m done

    Smirkenstocks 08/09/2018  8:18pm

    I have a singing final cb on 16th

    Timeaftertime 08/09/2018  8:34pm

    Anyone get a callback from today’s appointments? ITR? And are callbacks happening all next week?

    MM22mbl 08/10/2018  12:22pm


    Letmesleepdamnit 08/10/2018  12:33pm


    How sure are you that next week's callbacks are Final callbacks?

    sohoguy 08/10/2018  1:35pm

    Bump. Did anyone get a callback after today signing callbacks?

    DNC121 08/10/2018  1:41pm

    I kinda sorta got one in the room?!
    I sang two songs and she said "If you're coming back, you should lead with the second one."
    But nothing official!

    3threat 08/10/2018  1:54pm

    psl29 08/10/2018  5:54pm

    Robot101 08/10/2018  6:02pm

    Didn’t auditions go til 6 today? Don’t you think majority of callbacks will go out on Monday since agents offices are closed now? Anyone else bump?

    MM22mbl 08/10/2018  6:14pm

    Bump from singing callbacks 8/9

    Bumpy 08/10/2018  7:39pm


    Letmesleepdamnit 08/11/2018  10:04am

    Is it safe to say that if we haven't heard anything after our initial singing callback by now we are not moving forward?

    tinydancer9 08/11/2018  10:15am

    Anyone have an inside scoop on the timeline of casting, since it's only August and rehearsals start in December?

    sohoguy 08/11/2018  1:04pm

    TinyDancer 08/13/2018  9:04pm

    tinydancer — have you sung at all?

    ireallyneedthisjob 08/13/2018  9:09pm

    Yes - I sang stuff from my book for them last week after dancing at the ECC

    TinyDancer 08/13/2018  9:38pm

    @tinydancer are you singing from your book again tomorrow or did they give you sides ?

    Robot101 08/13/2018  9:47pm

    Bump- are all cbs out after today?

    Proudofyourboy 08/13/2018  10:22pm

    Jdance 08/14/2018  11:29am

    Any male principal tracks hear of further callbacks?!

    Jdance 08/14/2018  11:30am

    JDance, I haven’t heard for this week for male principals. Keep reading about Griz for Thursday. Wondering if that’s the only day....

    Dreactor 08/14/2018  1:18pm

    Bump. Has anyone heard anything about callbacks tomorrow after singing today?

    DNC121 08/14/2018  2:30pm

    When did they ask you to come in today?

    ts13d 08/14/2018  2:50pm

    Hi! I got an email last night after dancing yesterday to sing today at 10am

    DNC121 08/14/2018  2:58pm

    I am going in on Friday if that helps.

    sohoguy 08/14/2018  2:59pm

    Sohoguy, did you get an email about that today?

    DNC121 08/14/2018  3:03pm

    Anyone get called back for booth singer/cover?

    PingyZ 08/14/2018  3:09pm

    last week.

    sohoguy 08/14/2018  3:10pm


    So you’re called back for a male principal on Friday the 17th?

    Dreactor 08/14/2018  3:16pm


    sohoguy 08/14/2018  3:44pm


    Congrats! If you don’t mind my asking, what role?

    Dreactor 08/14/2018  4:13pm

    DNC12- male or female?

    ts13d 08/14/2018  4:18pm

    Anyone from today’s singer appts here about CBS?

    Regina Phalange 08/14/2018  6:49pm

    Bump! Anything after today’s singing callbacks?

    audbsimm1184 08/14/2018  11:39pm

    Yes - callback for more dancing tomorrow (Wednesday) after singing appointments today (Tuesday)

    TinyDancer 08/14/2018  11:52pm

    Congrats @TinyDancer! Are you going in for dancing tracks or the vocal tracks (ie Jelly, Griz, Old Deut, Gus)?

    Regina Phalange 08/15/2018  11:39am

    I mean have ANY final cb’s gone out!!!!? #dying

    honestlyhowsilly 08/15/2018  9:47pm

    I have an initial singing appointment on Friday. I received the appt 2 weeks ago. First time going in. If that helps to put anyone’s mind at ease... There doesn’t necessarily seem to be a method to the madness here.

    talkalotpickalittlemore 08/15/2018  9:49pm

    @phalange - dancing track! Also LOVE your name :-D

    @honestly - I received an email tonight saying that due to time constraints I don’t need to come to final CB tomorrow but I’m still in the mix. Not sure if that helps?

    TinyDancer 08/15/2018  10:04pm

    @TinyDancer hahaha thanksss!!

    @honestly also if it helps, I know ppl going in for the first time on Friday. So, maybe some things are not happening in as quick as a time frame as anticipated??

    Regina Phalange 08/15/2018  10:20pm

    I have a final callback today after being in all week. Who knows, I feel like there’s lots happening with lots of different tracks!

    DNC121 08/16/2018  7:05am

    Bump on offers! Or additional callbacks!
