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

  • Arvada EPA 04/19/2018  12:33pm

    Wondering if anyone can give insight to what Arvada's EPAs have been like in the past. I'm guessing they are pretty popular and therefore packed with equity? Do they ever hold open calls for their shows?


    I believe the full season EPAs for Arvada are usually pretty packed (like with every theatre), but they frequently come back to NYC on a show-by-show basis. It would probably be better to wait for them to return for the specific show you're interested in, than to try to get seen at the full-season EPA.

    Hey guys! Anyone know if EMC have been seen for Arvada before? Thanks!

    I wrote about this in a different thread, but I would say go. I have friends who have been seen at their EPAs, and I also know people who have dropped off their headshot and resume and were then called in for appointments for specific roles. There isn't much going on in the city tomorrow in terms of EPAs, so just bring a book or your computer and get some work done while you wait. BUT I definitely think it's worth going just to even drop off your headshot and resume, and show them that you are interested! Break legs!

    Thanks so much for the advice! I’ll be there and hopeful :)

    Update on Equity line?

    colorandlight16 04/20/2018  6:28am

    Update on noneq list

    lilsally8 04/20/2018  6:39am

    Equity line at 6 people as of 6:57am.

    pizzapartypants 04/20/2018  6:49am

    Anybody know how the EMC list is looking?

    Greenglasslove 04/20/2018  6:51am

    Bump on noneq list

    lilsally8 04/20/2018  7:23am

    There is no such thing as an EMC list.

    About 10 people on the EMC/Equity line as of 7:30

    StuckonSI 04/20/2018  7:23am

    Sorry for the confusion! I just signed up on a list for EMC. Is this referred to as a line?

    Greenglasslove 04/20/2018  7:27am

    ^^ meant for a different thread SORRY!!!

    StuckonSI 04/20/2018  7:28am

    Haha no problem! It’s early 😁

    Greenglasslove 04/20/2018  7:29am

    At EPAs EMC do have a separate list, and at Equity you can sign up on the 4th floor starting at 6:00am.

    EMC up to 14 at 7:15ish

    aquamarine 04/20/2018  7:37am

    Thanks for the update! I realize this is a silly question, but do we as EMC or non eq folks need to be there in the room when the call opens at 9:30 if we are down the list a bit?

    Greenglasslove 04/20/2018  7:39am

    Can somebody please update on noneq list?

    lilsally8 04/20/2018  7:53am

    EMC can go upstairs at 9:30. Non-Eq waits downstairs until they are told to go upstairs.

    Also for further clarification if anyone needs it; there are never EMC unofficial lists for EPAs. That's not a thing. EMC has to wait and sign up with equity at all other audition studios. Actor's Equity Center recently changed the policy so EMC can sign up on the 4th floor, and return at 9:30am.

    aquamarine 04/20/2018  8:06am
