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

    What is the likelihood of Non-Equity getting seen on Wednesday? Thank you so much!


    I would imagine a pretty good chance since a lot of Equity performers are out of town on contracts and auditions tend to be slow in the summer. I have been seen for Phantom as non union before. That day they took around 10-15 from the non-equ list. Hope this helps! :)

    Lately they haven't been seeing non-equity unfortunately....

    LegitBroadway 07/17/2018  6:24pm

    Always worth a shot though!

    Lion671 07/17/2018  10:02pm

    I always have bad luck getting seen for Bway Phantom as a non-eq. It's way more likely for non-eq to be seen for the tour, but you really never know!

    Zerbinetta 07/17/2018  10:48pm

    Last month, at the b’way ECC, they type casted. It’s a toss up either way, I think. So fingers crossed and best of luck!

    annamayo123 07/18/2018  3:51am

    Has someone posted the unofficial list?

    SpongebobSquarepants1 07/18/2018  5:20am

    Up to 20 on the non-union list!

    Broadway_dreamer 07/18/2018  5:36am

    CarmenSandiego 07/18/2018  8:12am

    princessbala 07/18/2018  8:36am

    Aphetoros 07/18/2018  8:55am

    Brushyourteeth 07/18/2018  9:16am


    thankssomuchnext 07/18/2018  9:39am

    Ladywholunches 07/18/2018  9:40am

    Anyone know who is in the room?

    Himherhimher 07/18/2018  10:02am

    Can someone update after the first group in terms of if she called any EMC or if appts are full until ____, that would be WONDERFUL!!!!

    Ladywholunches 07/18/2018  10:08am

    Please update on whether or not they will see non-eq or if they’re typing etc.

    CarmenSandiego 07/18/2018  10:09am

    Are they seeing non-eq?

    Hausg 07/18/2018  10:18am

    EMC 36, Non-Eq 105

    Lion671 07/18/2018  10:18am

    Bump on seeing non eq

    thankssomuchnext 07/18/2018  10:19am

    This is probably stupid questions, but if non-equity will be seen, what time do you suggest going to the call? I’m in the early 20s on the list. Also, if they type, is non-equity included in that? So sorry for the dumb questions, but thank you so much!!!

    Broadway_dreamer 07/18/2018  10:20am

    These are*

    Broadway_dreamer 07/18/2018  10:21am

    Caelia 07/18/2018  10:32am

    theatrelover 07/18/2018  10:50am

    Non-eq friends: Just overheard that they -will- be seeing us today. They need to get thru the other folks first though.

    CarmenSandiego 07/18/2018  11:00am

    Ladywholunches 07/18/2018  11:10am

    Currently at lunch. Here's the stats I've got:

    Equity Alts: 20/22 called. 5 signed in during lunch, waiting to receive numbers/appts.

    EMC list not out.

    Non-Equity: 112 signed in

    serenitymoon123 07/18/2018  2:08pm
