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 AuditionUpdate.com 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

    Hey everyone! Last week a friend sent me a link to ActorParlor.com, a site that started up in November (according to their website), and it’s being branded as “the social and professional network for actors, performers, and individuals involved in the entertainment business to chat, connect, and create.”

    Funny enough, I just finished an audition, and overheard a group talking about it, so I thought I’d post here. The site is gorgeous, and it seems like it’s run by a team that moderates it regularly. I also made an account, and it has some neat stuff like a real-time chat room, internal messaging system, actor profiles and status updates (for posting updates and showcasing work), and general/regional forums (for auditions, general discussion, etc.).

    The downside is that the user base seems small, so I haven’t really been able to interact with people yet and test out its functions. But it’s awesome that it lets you make profiles, and the account system lets you showcase headshots, post updates, etc. They also seem pretty intent on building a community (with a regional group system and community introductions forum) which seems cool.

    I’d much prefer to be using that platform, as their "regional audition forum" seems to have everything this does and more… but I'll probably be sticking around here for the time being until it gains traction haha…!

    Lovely site. I second the "I'd much prefer using that platform" motion lmao!

    Awesome! Just signed up. Will probably still always rely on my AU folks for auditions, but really like what I see in terms of networking on ActorParlor!

    I was actually really happy for your site but you have posted TWO threads now with the EXACT same wording. You copy and pasted an ad basically. This is spam and I'm flagging it as spam. We don't put up with this, I do wish your page luck but please do not post this twice in different threads. This is kind of rude. Please read the rules on here, thanks! :).

    Also what does this have to do with Equity? Does the union sponsor it? Come on.

    OP here. In no way was my intent to spam by double-posting. Both were posted about 4 hours before the community guidelines posts were added, so to accuse me of any ill-intent is unnecessary. However, I apologize to everyone if it came across as spam; just excited to share a site that I believe presents immense value to the acting community. :)
