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

    As of 4:17 there are 3 names.

    Also, on playbill and Broadway world the location says Ripley 520, so the list is there.

    I know on Backstage it’s different but idk.

    TheRealGalindaUpland 03/19/2018  4:12am

    Sorry, a bit confused! Is this at Pearl or Ripley-Grier?

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  4:25am

    Oh, whoops. Read the response incorrectly. Nevermind!

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  4:34am

    As of 5:17, there are 6 people signed up!

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  5:12am

    There are apparently lists at both Pearl and Ripley, y'all. Do we know where the call actually is?

    broadwaybaby16 03/19/2018  5:56am

    At 6am,9ppl on noneq list at Ripley and 3ppl on list at Pearl

    broadwaybaby16 03/19/2018  5:59am

    Equity website says Ripley 520 😊

    mtwallet 03/19/2018  6:19am

    Not sure if this means anything, or not, but on Friday it was at Pearl. I know backstage says that it's at pearl 500.

    coexist2014 03/19/2018  6:21am

    To the three that are on the list at pro 500, I just took a picture of the list, and I'm transferring your names to the list at Ripley 520. I hope this helps!

    coexist2014 03/19/2018  6:29am

    The three that were on the list at Paul, I put you on the current list at Ripley Grier, where play bill and actors equity both say the audition is taking place, and your numbers 12, 13, and 14. I left a note on the list at Pearl saying that the list was at RG. I hope this is helpful!

    coexist2014 03/19/2018  6:34am

    ((Sorry for the typos! Was using voice to text))

    coexist2014 03/19/2018  6:42am

    How's the line

    03/19/2018  6:51am

    Is there an emc Equity Line yet?

    Laura20 03/19/2018  7:33am

    I’m at Ripley where is the line and list?

    Dan1624 03/19/2018  8:05am

    EMC list was at 22 about ten minutes ago.

    aquamarine 03/19/2018  9:27am

    Do we know if they saw any emc on day one last week?

    DixieDarling 03/19/2018  9:39am

    They saw all EMC and I believe 60 non-eq on the first day!

    Lily5 03/19/2018  9:57am

    ITR, please?

    imapixie 03/19/2018  9:58am

    How’s the non-eq list looking?

    madelinepurr 03/19/2018  10:24am

    Any news on whether or not non-equity will be seen today?

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  10:34am

    moving pretty fast! EMC is being seen quickly.

    MissECC 03/19/2018  10:35am

    Can someone post when they start to see non eq, I’m at a dance call at Pearl about to start and I’m number 26 on the non eq list and don’t wanna miss my slot. Much appreciated, thank you!!!

    Dan1624 03/19/2018  10:39am

    Where are they on the EMC list? I am number 6 on the non eq list and I’m a bit far away. Thanks!

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  10:41am

    Who’s in that room?

    AaronBurrSir 03/19/2018  10:45am

    They’ve called 1 non-eq this far

    Kitty94 03/19/2018  10:46am

    They've called 29/32 EMC

    aquamarine 03/19/2018  10:46am

    Quick question! I’m a bit new at auditioning for professional companies, and if you are late to your slot, can you be seen later? Or is there no chance? I don’t think I can make it there by the time my number is called. Thank you!!

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  10:51am

    Just got here, and it looks like there are 2 Alts. 3 non-eq have been seen

    coexist2014 03/19/2018  11:09am

    Called up through 15 noneq

    broadwaybaby16 03/19/2018  11:16am

    Who is in the room today? Thanks Thanks!

    KristenKristen 03/19/2018  11:26am

    How many non eq are on the list right now/is the list still open?

    myjunkisyou 03/19/2018  11:39am


    AaronBurrSir 03/19/2018  11:40am

    Broadway_dreamer, I’m assuming you’re non-eq! Normally when you miss your name being called, you’re kinda SOL- they’ll cross your name off and probably not come back to it. But luckily this call is moving quick, so you may be able to come back and resign your name in time to get seen!

    madelinepurr 03/19/2018  11:42am

    Curious if they’ve called any more non-equity

    Jendlite 03/19/2018  11:50am

    What is the non eq up to now?

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/19/2018  11:52am

    Thank you so much madelinepurr! I really appreciate the response. I’m going to try again tomorrow and make it to my slot. Hopefully they see non equity as well tomorrow. Thank you so much again for the information!

    Broadway_dreamer 03/19/2018  11:57am

    Can someone let us know who is ITR? Thanks :)

    Greenglasslove 03/19/2018  12:04pm

    Update on non eq’s called?

    cjm568 03/19/2018  12:29pm

    I’d just like to know if they breezed past my number. Please if anyone knows if they’re past 28 that would be an awesome update. Thank you!

    Jendlite 03/19/2018  12:34pm

    Can someone update once lunch starts please? Would be awesome! Thank you!

    copyoflife 03/19/2018  12:38pm

    Lunch is at 1:30 I believe.
    EMC is around 20
    Rikki Gimielstob CSA
    Sharon Kenny Ac.

    fonzy 03/19/2018  1:00pm

    Maybe it was Non EQ...but either way, there seems to be a lot of space. AEA has no wait.

    fonzy 03/19/2018  1:02pm

    Called through #15 non-union before lunch. Not sure what EMC list is like since monitor is at lunch.

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 03/19/2018  1:56pm

    Any new update on non eq

    EmpLuke 03/19/2018  2:23pm

    Just started back up with the 2:30 group- Non-eq list is up to 52, called through 17
    No one on the alt list
    I don’t see the EMC list anywhere, but they called non-eq in the last group, so I assume there must not be any

    madelinepurr 03/19/2018  2:26pm

    Who is in the room after lunch?

    somethingblue 03/19/2018  3:15pm

    Any update on non-eq?

    cjm568 03/19/2018  3:20pm

    Are they going consistently through non-eq, or is it pretty full of Equity appointments and moving slowly still down the list? I’m nearer to 50, and curious as to if I should scurry my little butt out of Brooklyn back there right now or not lol

    ΔNu 03/19/2018  3:29pm

    Any ITR callbacks for this one?

    lookimadeaTopHat 03/19/2018  3:52pm

    I wasn’t was 52 on the non-eq list after having to resign up and they got to me in the 350 group. There were about 4 people left in the room when I left.

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/19/2018  4:20pm

    They are literally seeing anyone who walks into the holding room. No one is here.
