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

    I was supposed to be the monitor for this EPA tomorrow and was just informed it’s been canceled. Equity members with appointments should be getting emails or something about it soon (if not already), but I wanted to let nonunion people know as well!


    Any info on whether or not other EPAs will be cancelled? I’m wondering specifically about Arena.

    Bump! Yes, Arena Stage - anyone know anything? I am sleeping over a friend's house tonight just SO that I can make it in early enough to sign up

    All I know is that this and the Book of Mormon EPA have been canceled since I was supposed to work them; I’m not sure how it’s usually communicated so I’m not sure about anything else.

    Thank you so much for letting non-equity know! That's incredibly kind of you!

    according to the audition notices on the AEA site only DM and Mormon are currently marked as cancelled (of course the two I had appointments for)

    This audition is showing up on March 28th on a backstage; is that happening?

    Hdc 03/27/2018  9:46am

    The EPA on 3/28 I have marked separately from this call. It’s not a replacement for the 3/21 EPA unless they are doing that versus adding another date

    Does anyone know if the unofficial list for desperate measures today is up yet?

    Sierra895 03/28/2018  6:04am

    Unofficial at 8. Line at 3

    Could someone be an angel and see if non union will be seen time permitting?
