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

    Does anyone know their thoughts on singing from the show(s)?

    dophdoph623 05/21/2018  12:05pm

    What are people singing? Just 16 is best or are they looking for something older?

    Hey all! Asking for 16 bars? How many were at the call??

    Quirkyingenue#12673638 05/21/2018  3:02pm

    If we bombed today but for sure can do better, would it be dumb to try and come back tomorrow and redeem myself? 05/21/2018  3:17pm

    How many people showed up?

    Hay5678Lye 05/21/2018  4:00pm

    Bump on how many people showed up and what style of song you sang...

    thankssomuchnext 05/21/2018  4:06pm

    Bump! How many people showed up? Did they close the list?

    Puck.Rose 05/21/2018  7:02pm

    I don’t think they closed the list. I got there at 9:15 and was number 80. Was done around 12. They give out callbacks after your group.

    dancerfirst 05/21/2018  7:44pm

    Bump for more info from today, trying to figure out what time to get there tomorrow
