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

    Is this call usually crazy? Worth getting up early as EMC or Non eq?


    The backstage notice expired. This is still happening right?

    dance3looks3honestly 03/15/2018  7:39pm

    yes, it's tomorrow. backstage posted incorrectly that it was this past monday. staff at equity confirmed that it is happening friday (tomorrow)

    you'vegotafriendinme 03/15/2018  7:41pm


    Any chance they’ll see non-eq?

    derpladerp 03/15/2018  9:24pm

    Last year I was at the top of the EMC list and was dismissed for the day by lunch, I can’t imagine it’ll be better this year with so many more equity members

    Trynaball 03/15/2018  9:33pm

    @Trynaball thank you! I couldn't find last year's thread, but that's about what I assumed.

    reeee 03/15/2018  9:43pm

    Any update on the EMC list so far?

    ashea217 03/16/2018  5:10am

    EMC lists can't be made until 6:00am at the AEA building, but there are 4 people in line outside (may or may not all be here for Walnut)

    michy 03/16/2018  5:18am

    Bump! Updates?

    janisjoplinmanuel 03/16/2018  8:07am

    When I signed up at 6 there were like 2 emcs on Walnut. We were released til 9:30am so that may be why no one has a more recent update.

    Theatrebutwithanre 03/16/2018  2:52pm

    how's it looking for alts/emc

    ekat1991 03/16/2018  3:03pm

    Honestly – it does not look good. I am number 117 on the alts.and they’re only on number 51 at 3:11.

    morningperson...not 03/16/2018  3:07pm

    What number alternate are they on?

    Smelly2 03/16/2018  3:43pm

    Through 68 alts.

    bananabread 03/16/2018  4:35pm

    In the future, if you can afford it, take the bus to philly and go to the local call - much better chance of being seen.
