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

    Rosecat, are you going in the afternoon again? I feel like we’re in the same boat with our work schedules lol.

    Does Second Stage usually make time to see non-eq? How busy is it lookin?
    Thanks friends :)

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  7:10am

    Dunno anything about second stage.... but if anyone’s able to keep updates on this one going it would be appreciated! Good luck to all today

    SugarMargarineFlour 08/10/2018  7:31am

    Hi! No I’m not , I was just flying back. Currently jobless. But yesterday no non equity was seen, so don’t feel too bad. Around 20 on list now. Really depends, but we should know one way or other around 930/10. Some will just say right away no non union. Really hoping they will see us as getting in front of telsey would be amazing (seeing this as more that opportunity as there’s only two to be cast- and guessing they already have people in mind). I’ll post when I hear if they are seeing non equity.

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  7:31am

    Rosecat, thank you so much— you rock. I get off of work at 10:30 so I’ll either dash to AE or go back to bed!
    Crossing my fingers for us all.

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  7:34am

    Thanks so much rosecat!!

    SugarMargarineFlour 08/10/2018  7:35am

    You’re most welcome. Also since you mentioned yesterday I posted the addresses for the theatres in that thread. Best of luck to all too thanks

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  7:42am

    Will you guys post who is in the room when 930 rolls around? That would be so amazingly helpful, thank you! :)

    meeshoo 08/10/2018  7:43am

    As a non union I most likely won’t know who’s in the room until much later - if I can even get in. They don’t let us see until last minute. But if I’m able to of course

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  7:53am

    Around 31 now non union. A couple of equity were sent up maybe 6 at 8.

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  8:58am

    Rosecat, thank you so much— you rock. I get off of work at 10:30 so I’ll either dash to AE or go back to bed!

    ^not sure why that posted again, please ignore.

    Thanks again Rosecat, you’re seriously being the savior of the week!

    Anyone have any numbers on EMC? Trying to judge our chances here.

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  9:20am

    It’s all good you’re welcome ! I think possibly a handful of emcs went up can’t tell for sure. The equity room person should tell us soon if they are seeing non union at all time permitting - nothing yet. Will post as soon as she says.

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  9:33am

    Anyone else who is there know who is ITR?

    meeshoo 08/10/2018  9:46am

    They will see non union time permitting - only 6 emcs up there apparently. Someone from telsey and co should be up there and they cast a lot of big stuff I would say if you can I’d try and come by.

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  10:04am

    Julia Mendes (Artistic Fellow) is ITR

    Beebe Bluff 08/10/2018  10:05am

    Sending up first 10 non union!!

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  10:05am

    Just read some posts above and want to mention that there is no direct representative from Telsey in the room today (at least as of this morning). The audition notice didn't mention that anyone but Julia would be present, either.

    Beebe Bluff 08/10/2018  10:07am

    It was mentioned online they were casting - perhaps it was wrong. Thanks tho

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  10:18am

    Yay all great news! How many total on non-eq list so far?

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  10:19am

    Maybe 36 non union ? And why is telsey listed as casting does that mean they have some hand in it somehow? Guessing seeing someone from 2nd still good but bummer not from telsey. Thx

    Rosecat 08/10/2018  10:26am

    Hey how are alternates and emcs moving along?

    cmc957 08/10/2018  10:32am

    Lots of eq appts available. And alt list, emc and non eq are wide open. Telsey is casting but the artistic fellow from the theatre is in the room. What that exactly means for really being considered from this epa, can’t be for sure.

    lil b 08/10/2018  10:50am

    How long is the non eq list, and has there been any more movement? Thank you!!

    lamarckian 08/10/2018  11:11am

    Sorry I misunderstood the monitor. The non eq list is at about 50 or something? And I believe they called up to #20 to wait upstairs. Just want to make sure I’m passing along the right info. There are currently no emcs waiting

    lil b 08/10/2018  11:17am

    ^becks is correct! Non-eq list at 47, they’ve called through #20. Good luck everyone!

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  11:23am

    Called through 41 non-eq! Moving pretty quickly. There’s only about 9 left on the list, so if you’re coming late you definitely have a shot.

    DoubleA95 08/10/2018  12:08pm

    I was 24th on the non-eq list and just got seen. Appointments available after I think 2:10 and I don't think there are any alts as of now. Only a few EMCs have trickled in. Looking good for after lunch! Break legs everyone!

    Kmo3 08/10/2018  12:22pm

    Post-lunch update?

    Notthrowingawaymyshot 08/10/2018  2:10pm

    Is it still moving for non eq? Does anyone know who is ITR? Many thanks!

    lamarckian 08/10/2018  2:26pm

    No word. Haven’t pulled anyone up yet.

    ActingGeneral 08/10/2018  3:05pm

    Still no movement up?

    lamarckian 08/10/2018  3:43pm

    Took the rest of the room up. I think they saw all 60+ of non eq.

    ActingGeneral 08/10/2018  5:11pm

    Still no movement up?
