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

  • List started and taped outside the 250 entrance! Please bring inside when it opens.

    wannabeMeryl 10/23/2017  7:25am

    highvoltage 10/23/2017  7:44am

    What's the EMC list at now?

    hellohello26 10/23/2017  8:50am

    What are we thinking for non eq? After lunch?

    dance3looks3honestly 10/23/2017  9:11am

    Bump for appointments/alternates/EMC lists!

    ihopeigetit 10/23/2017  9:18am

    What's the list looking like after sign ups?

    DMXtreme300 10/23/2017  9:22am


    Zedoj18 10/23/2017  9:31am

    IWBOB 10/23/2017  9:43am

    Was the non eq list transferred?

    dgretchen 10/23/2017  9:53am

    Non eq list was transferred, EMC list at 47

    ev9194 10/23/2017  9:58am

    Are appointments full?

    FrandallJamz 10/23/2017  10:04am

    Appointments and alternate list update anyone?

    JSL32 10/23/2017  10:07am

    As of now, there are 8 alternates that need to be seen and then EMC

    thisismyusername 10/23/2017  10:17am

    Anyone know if they are giving callbacks in the room?

    WillWorkForReeses 10/23/2017  10:21am

    Are appts full through out the day?

    Ab90 10/23/2017  10:22am

    On Backstage it says they're asking for a song, but I doubt that they want that from EMC/nonunion. Anyone know if they're looking for a 16 or 32?

    hellohello26 10/23/2017  10:28am


    noscreenname 10/23/2017  10:39am

    reeee 10/23/2017  11:09am

    Is it safe to assume that they have moved on to the emc list now?

    Trap_music_n_showtunes 10/23/2017  11:29am

    Bump on if they’re seeing EMC now

    BackeBabe 10/23/2017  11:38am

    dramaqu33n28 10/23/2017  2:11pm

    Any EMC updates would be appreciated :-)

    EverybodyRise 10/23/2017  2:28pm

    Have they called through Alts yet?

    spicegirl 10/23/2017  2:50pm

    When they started back up after lunch, no EMCs had been called yet and there were still some alternates as well

    actress9315 10/23/2017  3:01pm

    How many Alts are they on now

    effyes 10/23/2017  3:09pm

    Bump on alternates?

    Jdance 10/23/2017  3:24pm

    Still 0 EMC called.

    EverybodyRise 10/23/2017  3:43pm

    Not Seeing Non-Eq due to time!

    CFrizze 10/23/2017  3:55pm

    Are they accepting drop offs?

    actress9315 10/23/2017  4:08pm

    He didn't say anything about drop offs, he said there is an open call On friday, but it doesn't say anything about Sister Act, only A Chorus Line. We tried to ask the monitor about that and he just said he doesn't work for the company so he has no info.

    Anyone know if they will be considering Sister Act in that open call on Friday?

    highvoltage 10/23/2017  4:15pm

    EMC dismissed as well.

    IWBOB 10/23/2017  4:36pm

    Open call on Friday is a dance audition for ACL only.
