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

    Has an EMC list been started yet?

    mishi3 07/16/2018  6:58am

    EMC have to line up and be signed in by the monitor - there is no unofficial EMC list

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 07/16/2018  7:06am

    1 in line @7:10

    Singerdancer1113 07/16/2018  7:11am

    Yo somebody named Eclan? We added your name to the non-Eq list. There were two started and worried they might not get accepted if more than one.

    So NOW the unofficial non-RW list is at like 50? There were less than 10 EMC in line...

    SingLikeMyHeels2 07/16/2018  5:20pm

    They ended up getting through 18 noneq. Tue/Wed EPA is at AEA, not pearl. Best of luck for the next two days!

    courtbutt 07/16/2018  6:29pm

    Hey guys!

    So I've seen that people are signing up early as hell at times like 530AM even, is actors equity sky lobby open early enough for this or you're only allowed in the building after a certain time??

    NoButISeriouslyWannaBeInTheRoomWhereItHappens 07/16/2018  9:36pm

    So can someone just honestly help me out here.. it looks like this call was NUTS today.. and only 18 non-eq got seen? I was planning to go tomorrow but as a non-eq person I’d probably have to show up at 6am to be seen..? Is it worth it to even go as a non-eq person tomorrow or do we expect it to be equally crazy as it was today? Thoughts....? Thanks in advance.

    pmusic 07/16/2018  9:55pm

    So when you go to enough EPAs you realize that 18 non eq getting seen is actually pretty great. It’s not exactly common for non eq to get seen at EPA workshops. For example, non eq was dismissed for the workshop of Clueless today. If you’re non equity and really feel like you’re right for the project, get there super early and sign that list! And by super early I don’t mean 3 AM because people will hate you.
