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

    Does anyone know what time the list goes up tomorrow? Auditions officially start at 10am, according to the casting notice.


    Bump on this?? It says to be ready for auditions @ 10:00am, but not sure how this one will go.

    caffeinedreamer 12/11/2017  10:35pm

    It's an open call so I'm guessing sign up will officially "start" around 9. Not many open calls seems to honor a list but I'm still showing up early.

    Tim204 12/11/2017  11:05pm

    List just started. On the door at 244. They’ve accepted one in the past.

    ‡‡‡ 12/12/2017  5:53am

    Anyone know if a list of any kind has started yet?

    Megan 12/12/2017  5:54am

    C2braz 12/12/2017  6:20am

    Megan 12/12/2017  7:12am

    List is at 20 @ 7:55

    allmydreamrolesareolderthanme 12/12/2017  7:41am

    List is upstairs

    beutifullifels 12/12/2017  8:12am

    List is at 48 now. The audition is on the 10th floor of Nola!

    Megan 12/12/2017  8:54am

    Have they said anything about closing the list?

    ihopeigetit 12/12/2017  9:21am

    Around 83 now

    Purplebelt 12/12/2017  9:41am

    Bump that last comment, because im still trying to get there.

    willsing4food 12/12/2017  9:41am

    Still trying to get there- list still open? Anyone?

    pmusic 12/12/2017  10:13am

    How is this looking? Is the list closed?

    missyoucantsinginhere 12/12/2017  10:38am

    The list is staying open, but its dance call first

    ^Dance first? For RAGTIME?!

    bwaylvsong 12/12/2017  11:23am

    Yeah..sooo it seems like they stopped singing for a bit to start their dance call. They are on the last group of dancers now and will continue singers after. If you show up now you wouldn’t be seen for a long time if at all.

    It’s also a bit of a clusterfuck and the tiniest holding room EVER. Break legs kids!

    Rain On my Parade 12/12/2017  11:47am

    Holy shit, it's insane- I walked in and couldn't find the monitor/list (despite a kind soul [Rain?] describing her), so I just left.

    bwaylvsong 12/12/2017  12:13pm

    If we come tomorrow what should we expect? Be ready to dance at 10 and then sing after? How hard is the dance call? Is it more of a movement call or more on the intense side?

    Puck.Rose 12/12/2017  12:18pm

    ^where is @overanalyzingtv

    FierceConversations 12/12/2017  12:48pm

    Expect to dance most likely first and it’s a strong movers call focused on acting.
    One song 16 bars only - they may ask for a second one

    Purplebelt 12/12/2017  12:55pm

    Hey! Having a difficult time finding pay/housing situation if any. Can anyone provide details on this? Thanks!

    mmmm 12/12/2017  3:47pm

    No housing and small stipend. It’s basically community theater

    littleeagle 12/12/2017  3:50pm

    Except that community theatres don’t pay stipends of $500-1500 and axelrod does.

    EpaMonitor 12/12/2017  4:06pm

    Is anyone else a little concerned that they had a camera panning the holding room, filming the audition process, etc....but didn't have us sign any releases? If it was just in the audition room I'd think it was for their records but the camera guy was everywhere. What are they doing with that footage?

    texicalyorker 12/12/2017  4:40pm

    Anybody there yet? Are they moving first or singing?
