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 AuditionUpdate.com 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

    BUMP! How many on non Eq. Thanks!!

    WarriorG 04/24/2018  7:36am

    Hey guys! Just wondering if anyone can update on the non eq list? Thanks! :)

    WarriorG 04/24/2018  8:02am

    Non eq list is at 9 people as of 8:15

    nash22 04/24/2018  8:18am

    Thank you!

    WarriorG 04/24/2018  8:34am

    Non-eq on official list at 17
    EMC: not clear, they're signing up with monitor now
    AEA: seems like there are still appointments available

    This is all as of 9:07

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  9:07am

    How many Alts/ EMC are there?

    CatMuse 04/24/2018  9:48am

    Who is ITR? Thanks!!

    ABrave89 04/24/2018  9:52am

    What studio is this in?

    Beatriceforever 04/24/2018  9:58am

    Holding: Studio 212
    Audition: Studio 211

    They will see non-eq and have been released till after lunch.

    Have already called through three alts in the first two groups

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  10:06am

    ^thank you! I’m assuming this goes without saying, but they definitely want a flawless RP accent for this correct? I mean for it to be used during the audition

    The guy with the dog 04/24/2018  10:13am

    Just a logistical question--if I haven't put my name on the non-eq list yet (haven't arrived yet!) should I drop by, put it on the list and then come back after lunch? Or is it okay to just come at 2:30 and do it then?

    nyc0920 04/24/2018  10:14am

    I assume they do? It said in the posting to be prepared for RP, but I haven't listened in to see if people are actually being asked.

    The non-Eq list is now around 31, and they are accepting drop-offs so I'd say the sooner you can add your name the better! Worst comes to worst you can always leave a headshot behind!

    ITR: Morgan Everitt- Reader
    Peter Van Dam- casting associate

    Also, 8 alternates now have been called

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  10:23am

    You’ll be fine coming back at 230 to sign up for non-equity. The majority of people signing up early were hoping to be seen early. A lot of people from the list left their headshot/resume with the monitor and told them that they would try to come back for 230 but may not be able to. At least 15 people have done this thus far (I’m sitting in the room as an equity alternative). Also once they start rolling through the non-equity list, people tend to not be there (this happens all the time where the monitor reads through a ton of names before getting a person who’s actually there). I think you’re fine to come back at lunch to sign up as long as you’re ready to sit and wait for your name. They will get through a lot of non-equity since so many equity people have already not shown up for appointments and there are still appointments in the afternoon free. Don’t rush and stress, just come after lunch! Break legs.

    Yes to that yes 04/24/2018  10:40am

    ^^Thanks guys! :)

    nyc0920 04/24/2018  11:12am

    Updates on how many alternates?

    zarina 04/24/2018  12:17pm

    There are only about 2-3 Equity alternates left on the list and people trickling in and getting on the alt list haven't been waiting long to get thrown in a group.

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  12:40pm

    49/51 alternates seen

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  12:42pm

    What’s the EMC looking like? Tryna figure if non eq should show up at 2:30 or not

    bump on emc situation.

    ^im EMC and signed up on the list. The monitor said that they won’t start calling non-eq until about 330. Right at 230 they are flush with full appointments—these people have already arrived to look at sides. I was told to come at 3/330 partially to help the room not be crazy so that they can speed through the appointments at 230 and 3 which gives them time to start seeing non eq. Hope hat helps

    Here we go 04/24/2018  1:20pm

    What’s going on with post lunch activities?

    Updates please 04/24/2018  2:54pm

    Bump on alts?

    hbax9 04/24/2018  3:04pm

    It’s the definition of a cluster f*ck right now. There’s over 50 people waiting in the room and outside in the lobby. The non equity list is over 50 people and they haven’t called any. This call is officially packed

    Oh god no 04/24/2018  3:06pm

    Can someone please update how many alts and EMC's are still waiting to be seen? Trying to figure out when would make sense for non-eq people to come back...
    Thanks! :)

    When I went in I was told that if you are already signed up on the non-equity list and are number 25 or below that there’s a chance you will be seen. I didn’t sign up because there’s over 50 non-equity in the list. EMC rules do not apply after lunch so you’d be signing up below the non-equity if you come in now and are EMC. The alternate list is growing by the minute as more and more people come in. If you are union and go in now you will probably be seen. If you are non union then no, I was told there’s no chance I’ll get seen

    Oh god no 04/24/2018  3:17pm

    3 alternates
    11 EMCs

    This is current as of 3:55

    Kmo3 04/24/2018  3:54pm
