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

    I'll be auditioning tomorrow this is my first equity call as a non-union actor. Where was the list posted yesterday ? Who is responsible for posting it? Lastly, what time should i get there?


    It's at AEA so the official list will be posted in the waiting area on the Sky lobby floor. I don't think it's necessary to get there super early unless you need to get seen before their lunch break.

    Whats the sky lobby floor

    Meh1313 11/16/2017  1:14am

    Any updates on non eq list?

    Sky Lobby is a fancy pants way of saying the lobby is on the 4th floor. After you get past security on the first floor, it will be the only other button in the elevator. The non-equity holding room is past the cafe to your left.
    Non-equity list is up to 23.
    Any updates on alt/ emc?

    WaterWithNoStrawPlease 11/16/2017  9:16am

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  10:50am

    Have any non eqs been seen? And bump for who is in the room. Thanks!!

    Owilde91 11/16/2017  10:56am

    They took the first 10 or so non-eq upstairs. i believe they are getting through all or most of them before lunch. All other non-eq have been dismissed until 2.

    Bway_Owl 11/16/2017  11:31am

    Could someone post who is INR? Thanks!

    Any updates about how many non-eq were seen before lunch?

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  1:09pm

    47 non eq on list. About 13 called upstairs before lunch but not sure how many of those were actually seen.

    MTC 11/16/2017  1:42pm

    Thank you!! Can someone update how fast it starts to go after lunch?

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  2:36pm

    Have not called up any more non eq since before lunch. People who went upstairs before lunch, are you still waiting to audition?

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 11/16/2017  3:03pm

    I'm just debating coming back - I missed my EMC spot because I had to leave at 12 before the next group. Totally my fault - I just know it was taking about 2-3 minutes per person in the room earlier but the EMC list was sparse and appts weren't too packed so I thought they might have seen at least a couple more. Cest la Vie.

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  3:12pm

    Called up to 31 on non-eq

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  3:24pm

    They finally called up the next 10 but there were no-shows so they called up to #31

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 11/16/2017  3:24pm

    We don't have access to the sides until we get upstairs right?

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 11/16/2017  3:26pm

    Everyone has been brought upstairs

    Ladywholunches 11/16/2017  3:50pm

    Anyone know who was in the room? Matthew wise?
