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 AuditionUpdate.com 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

    I know some final callbacks were today. Any info on when offers are expected to go out?

    As far as I know, the current cast isn’t going anywhere and this was just for building files since it’s a new casting team

    Well the cast is going somewhere because the tour will be non-union come summer.

    I thought it was already non-union...?

    It is currently Equity. It will lose its union jurisdiction this summer when it goes to Asia, and when the tour comes back from Asia, it will just be a nonunion tour.

    The tour that is out now is already non-union. I actually just saw it at the end of November 2017. They were cast last summer by Joy Dewing before Wojcik/Seay took over. There was an Equity tour at some point that Telsey had cast, but I believe that had since ended.

    All that being said, I suppose you never know which actors could be up for renewal and for how long. Congrats to everyone in final callbacks and best of luck! Be proud!

    The tour is and has been non eq since August 2017. I do know they were casting immediate replacements. And then I assume offers will go out later once it is figured out who signs on from the current tour of those that are staying with the tour.

    From what I've heard from a current cast member, no offers have been made to them yet.

    A current cast member told me is that as far as they know everyone has been offered and has accepted the Asia extension... but who knows! Great job everyone! Cheers to an awesome process and amazing start to the season!

    Just confirmed, the above information about the cast staying on for the next leg of the tour is correct.
