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

    Got an email around 10pm last night saying that I have a callback on Monday.

    bumpitout 01/12/2018  8:51am

    Do you know which theater called you back? Singing or dancing? Congrats!

    eightbellssarah 01/12/2018  10:06am

    If we haven’t gotten an email by now, should we assume we don’t have any callbacks next week?

    Beltbox400 01/12/2018  10:08am

    Also received an email around 10 pm last night from A1’s, and received an email this morning from RWS Entertainment with callback info for Monday.

    yaytheatre 01/12/2018  10:18am

    For those of you with CBs, were you there initially as singers or dancers?

    Ru.Fi.Oooo 01/12/2018  10:23am

    I was there as a singer and then did the mover call

    yaytheatre 01/12/2018  10:27am


    Suiteofjacks 01/12/2018  10:27am

    The emails from A1, were they the “hey someone wants to see you tap on Monday” emails. Or did they give you information about each individual callback?

    KingJoffrey 01/12/2018  10:38am

    for the people who received call backs, do you have representation?

    01/12/2018  10:46am

    No representation/Noneq singer. It was just a general email from A1 saying either one or more theaters will be reaching out to you about details for callbacks on Monday. This was a different email than the tap email.

    bumpitout 01/12/2018  10:50am

    Did anyone get an email about tapping yet?

    A girl has no name 01/12/2018  12:44pm

    Yes, received email from A1 for tap callback Monday. Unspecified for which theatres/companies.

    stq4l 01/12/2018  1:46pm

    Have any of the "dancers" received any emails about callbacks?

    1223 01/12/2018  3:39pm

    Has anyone received callback emails from specific theatres?

    bumpitout 01/12/2018  7:17pm

    Has anyone received a callback from the auditions today? (1/12)

    ladieswhobrunch20 01/12/2018  9:53pm

    I attended the dancer call first on 1/11 and just received a callback email from A1, not specific to any theaters.

    crushedit123 01/12/2018  11:18pm

    Singer/Mover here. Just received an email saying that I received a callback from a theater/theaters for Monday. No specifics though. Good luck to everybody!

    NewtieNEWT 01/12/2018  11:22pm

    A1 email and wagon wheel follow up so far

    8BarWhat 01/13/2018  3:18am

    Oh btw I’m a non-eq female singer mover

    8BarWhat 01/13/2018  3:20am

    I auditioned as a singer/mover on Thurs and I just got an email last night between 10 and 11pm about an urgent callback for peach state theater today (gotta love a 12 hour window for 20 pages of sides!), as well as a generic email about callbacks Monday.

    GoodnightQueen 01/13/2018  9:00am

    Bump for CB’s from those auditioned yesterday!

    ladieswhobrunch20 01/13/2018  12:45pm


    ladieswhobrunch20 01/13/2018  5:27pm

    I was wondering if you didn’t get a dance callback or a callback the past 24 hours is it safe to say that I will not be seen again?

    Colormeemmy 01/13/2018  8:29pm

    Did anyone who auditioned on Friday receive a callback? Especially singer/movers?

    ladieswhobrunch20 01/14/2018  10:09am

    Has anyone received Monday callback info from any theatres?

    bumpitout 01/14/2018  4:54pm

    Yes from two

    Skiernc 01/14/2018  4:59pm

    I received a general “you got a callback” email from A1 two nights ago but have not heard anything from any theaters so far. Has this happened to anyone else?

    crushedit123 01/14/2018  5:07pm

    I received a couple of general callback emails but I’ve only heard from one Theater specifically.

    NewtieNEWT 01/14/2018  5:13pm

    Yea same here. Got the "You got callbacks on Monday" Email from A1 but never heard from any theatres. Kinda sucks don't ya'll think ? lol

    3threat 01/14/2018  5:40pm

    Yeah I got a callback from one theater, but not the generic A1 email, so I have no idea what to do.
