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

    Bump. Who’s ITR?

    Could some kind soul that’s been to this today or earlier this week answer a quick question for me... are the actors able to choose which character we read for? Or is there just one side being used for everyone?

    Questions galore 03/14/2018  11:42am

    I have not been to this audition, but in the past, auditions using sides post sides for each character.

    Captainmj 03/14/2018  11:54am

    @Questionsgalore it is a separate side for each character.

    KitKatKween 03/14/2018  12:32pm

    @Questions galore - you choose the side. And there are MANY characters to choose from.

    I just got out of my day job. I'm non-equity. Can anyone there update on the number of non-equity currently on the list? And if it's worth heading over there now to get there by 3:15? I know lunch just ended for you all, but any response would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance

    Wow, that afternoon reader did not want to be there. Good luck to you if you had a monologue. I left quite dispirited.

    AGREED! He actually forgot to read his first line at first during my audition... and his line is supposed to cut me off so I was just rambling until he finally woke up from whatever daydream he was having and decided to participate
