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

    Fizzy14 04/16/2018  5:38pm

    Thank you bumpingbagel!

    And Fizzy, I was asked to come back and dance on Wednesday but beyond that there’s no further word!

    Thatblondebitch 04/16/2018  6:08pm

    When did you hear about wednesday?

    showbizkid 04/16/2018  6:14pm

    @thatblondebitch for role or ensemble?

    dancintrash 04/16/2018  6:35pm


    thebumpingbagel 04/16/2018  6:52pm

    They told me in the room for dance, and am in for ensemble/Portia

    Thatblondebitch 04/16/2018  8:38pm

    @thatblondebitch is this your first time dancing for them?

    dancintrash 04/16/2018  8:49pm

    @dancintrash Yes it is :)

    Thatblondebitch 04/16/2018  8:58pm

    Any principal callbacks tomorrow? Dance stuff on Wednesday?

    Fizzy14 04/16/2018  10:02pm

    Principal and principal/ensemble callbacks today. People were being told in the room to come back to dance tomorrow (4/18).

    Frubert 04/17/2018  12:01pm

    Was this a final callback or just the initial?

    thebumpingbagel 04/17/2018  12:36pm

    Did anyone get a callback for today or tomorrow from the Friday the 13th appts?

    thatpirouettedoe 04/17/2018  12:48pm

    had a principal CB today...bump for final final CBS on thursday or friday or whatever!

    user1234 04/17/2018  12:55pm

    ^^ was it the first final after an initial? Like from yesterday?

    thebumpingbagel 04/17/2018  1:10pm

    hey @bagel. i had an initial agent appt last week with sides + my book. today i had a callback and just did sides. (i heard ppl before me singing from their book as well for the team!) hope that clarifies.

    user1234 04/17/2018  1:13pm

    yes! thank you!

    thebumpingbagel 04/17/2018  1:20pm

    Any callbacks for ensemble from singing on Friday?

    awopbamboo 04/17/2018  1:54pm

    ^^^^bump for this

    thatpirouettedoe 04/17/2018  3:08pm

    Weren’t there supposed to be callbacks today?

    Jk98373839 04/17/2018  4:26pm

    BUMP on principal callbacks for Thursday (not dance for tomorrow).

    user1234 04/17/2018  9:40pm

    Is the dance call tomorrow only for those who haven’t danced for them yet?

    flyingdancer 04/17/2018  10:10pm

    Bump bump bump

    thatpirouettedoe 04/18/2018  2:56am


    thebumpingbagel 04/18/2018  9:27am


    Jk98373839 04/18/2018  12:41pm

    bump lol

    thatpirouettedoe 04/18/2018  12:54pm

    Did anyone who sang on Monday who already danced receive any further callbacks? I know you can email casting and ask if you’re still in consideration....I heard the dance call today was for people who haven’t danced. Updates!!!

    Struts&Bigbutts 04/18/2018  1:04pm

    ^^ bump! Sang on Monday and assumed, since the packet said callbacks would be 17-18 we’d hear something. Not sure! Bump bagel bump!

    thebumpingbagel 04/18/2018  1:16pm

    ^^same boat but sang on Friday instead .. any info would be awesome :)

    thatpirouettedoe 04/18/2018  1:54pm

    Today 4/18 are ensemble and cover final callbacks - there are appointments for principal and cover finals Thursday and Friday

    dancingcountrygirl 04/18/2018  2:12pm

    Friday the 13th people- did any of you receive a callback?

    SheldonKaner23 04/18/2018  2:27pm

    ^^same question

    thatpirouettedoe 04/18/2018  2:36pm

    Bump on friday the 13th people hearing back for female leads

    Dance3L00ks4 04/18/2018  2:55pm


    Were emails for those appointments sent out already?

    thebumpingbagel 04/18/2018  3:11pm

    So NO ONE who sang for female leads on Friday got a second callback....?

    singtomepaolo 04/18/2018  3:13pm

    Is anyone in for a just-ensemble callback today? All I’ve heard of is ensemble/cover callbacks.

    awopbamboo 04/18/2018  3:21pm

    I was in just for ensemble. Did any ensemble females who got asked to sing get asked for a second song? They only had me do one, but they asked for 2 in my initial singing callback.

    Adancerdancebelts 04/18/2018  3:42pm

    Tuesday 4/17 callback for female principal here - bumping to see if anyone received a principal callback email for 4/19!

    TheSongThatNeverEnds 04/18/2018  4:04pm

    Got a final callback (principal role) for Tuesday!

    DoinTheThing 04/18/2018  5:07pm

    Was it from an initial callback like from Monday?

    thebumpingbagel 04/18/2018  5:14pm

    @dointhething did you mean Thursday? Or Tuesday the 24th?

    Heymickey77 04/18/2018  5:28pm

    Ladies and gents in for ensemble! After singing today (Wednesday) was this the end? Or is anyone being called in again?

    dancingcountrygirl 04/18/2018  5:41pm

    ^^^ Same!! Men, post if you hear anything after dancing and singing today (4/18).

    nycdancer05 04/18/2018  5:47pm

    I know crazier things have happened, but I’m guessing it’s safe to assume if you were being considered for ensemble/understudy before and weren’t asked to come in today that you’re no longer being considered?

    flyingdancer 04/18/2018  6:15pm

    Any word on Bea finals?

    bradyd62 04/18/2018  7:11pm

    Does anyone who was in for callbacks today (4/18) remember the producers’ names? I forgot to snap a picture of the list of who was in the room today. Thank you!

    Catlady100 04/18/2018  11:09pm

    ^^ Steve Gabriel and Kevin Greene

    nycdancer05 04/18/2018  11:34pm

    For all of my fellow singers yesterday: What was your experience in the room? They had me sing my side once, told me great job today and then I was out. A bit shorter than I thought it might be.

    I know they said not to read into it (how can you not?) but I’m interested if everyone else’s time in the room was as quick as mine/sang from their book/etc.! Best of luck to everyone over this next week or so.

    singinginthecorner 04/19/2018  7:14am

    ^^^ hey man, I know how you feel. Similar experience. I sang one song and that was it. They were very enthusiastic and kind, so I didn’t get the impression that I had botched the song so bad that they didn’t want to see anything more, but it was oddly short.

    bigmoney_salvia 04/19/2018  7:50am

    Have people heard about callbacks that are supposed to go on today?

    Fizzy14 04/19/2018  8:27am

    ^ bump

    DiamondDoll 04/19/2018  10:53am

    Have a female principal callback today from a callback Tuesday 3/10. Hope that helps! Break legs everyone!

    Heymickey77 04/19/2018  11:27am

    if I had a female principle callback on the 16th and I haven't heard anything since then should I assume that i'm out and move on with my life? lol

    i'llshowmyselfout 04/19/2018  12:18pm


    alwaysabridesmaid 05/23/2018  7:00pm

    Please disregard the above, keyboard went nuts.

    Bumping this to see if any offers have gone out or if they may still be looking for female ensemble.
