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 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

    Does anyone know if they take an unofficial list? Just wanting to know what time I should be there.


    I'm assuming since the posting said "sign ups start at 9:30" that they will not take one

    BackeBabe 04/24/2018  10:24am

    Celebrity does take an unofficial list!

    In the past they’ve accepted the unofficial but you have to be in the room when they call your name to transfer to an official list.

    So for a 9:30 sign up (assuming they don't take an unofficial list) I should get there at like 8:15?

    *this is my first audition season* #help

    BrooklynHusker 04/24/2018  11:35pm

    Hey BrooklynHusker- It kinda depends on when people decide to arrive. Some will show up as early as 6:30 and wait in line, but it is a rainy morning so hopefully people sleep in a bit later!

    Greenglasslove 04/24/2018  11:58pm

    @myfairlady so do they call names to switch to the official list at the sign up start time at 9:30?

    princessbala 04/25/2018  12:06am

    i don't quite understand why everyone goes so damn early. I get that you wanna be seen but... to get there at 5.30am for a 9.30am sign in.... why doesn't everyone just get there at like 9.30 or like 9 at the earliest? It just seems so silly to me to get there hours before when we have to sit around for hours as non-eq anyway praying to be seen. why not take those extra hours sleep in the morning to then be more awake and enjoying the time waiting around.... i don't know, I'm new to this, maybe next year il understand....?

    Charjbae 04/25/2018  12:20am

    Hi Charjbae- I definitely agree! I think from what some of my friends and others have said, some girls show up early because they have work at like noon and want to make sure they are seen. It’s frustrating to be arriving at 7:30am and have like 60 people already lined up but it’s what people need to do for themselves and schedules sometimes. I wish they would just give us slips when we arrive they tell us what time to come back, like they did at Radio City this past week, but I feel like everyone is still trying to figure it all out?! 🤷🏼‍♀️ I guess we just have to stay positive and keep showing up when we can!

    Greenglasslove 04/25/2018  12:26am

    What’s the list looking like?

    5678kickyourface 04/25/2018  6:02am

    Unofficial list is up to 50

    Jwal0226 04/25/2018  6:33am

    I thought they didn’t take an unofficial list?

    BrooklynHusker 04/25/2018  6:40am

    Every single celebrity call I’ve gone to they have accepted the unofficial.

    meerkatlover 04/25/2018  6:42am

    List around 57 at 7am.

    rainbowhigh94 04/25/2018  7:10am

    Any news regarding whether they’ll take the unofficial list or not? The list confusion at RC is changing my time management! :) just would like to know regarding if we need to appear in person to sign up.

    Hello friends!

    We know there are many auditions happening today and we want to be as open and inclusive as possible --- and to see as many people as we can! Our call is open for anyone today both before and after lunch -- and we will be seeing folks until 5PM. We have honored the unofficial list and are excited to keep adding names throughout the day.

    We are all in this together and we will see you in the room!
