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

    Looking to see if anyone has attended this unified call before. I read past posts but all seem pretty dated. Is this worth it compared to others like Strawhats? As a dancer first would you recommend since they only do song and monologue? Not looking to pay $$$ if it won't pay off

    Total, absolute waste of time and I’m a singer-actor. What you will get: offers to do unpaid readings of new plays, invitations to free seminars where they try to sell you paid seminars, invitations to one free class where they try to sell you their longer class, invitations to meet coaches so they can convince you to pay them for coachings. What you won’t get: auditions, callbacks, or offers for paid work in any shape or form. And the people who run the thing are crazy disorganized and completely nutty. I know lots of people who did these auditions and it’s not quite a scam but a very expensive waste of time. One of my worst NYC experiences, and I’ve been here 10yrs

    To clarify: I did TRU last year. Oh, and if you decide to do it don’t give them your regular email because the spam keeps coming for months.

    Thanks so much! 03/19/2018  9:57pm

    I did this event last year and did not get any offers, except for unpaid play readings

    However, I WILL say that the staff was completely organized and very friendly. I thought they did a wonderful job of running the event! I felt very relaxed and easeful at this audition, unlike most. So I disagree with the previous comments about disorganization.
