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

    Does anyone know if its worth it to audition for Strawhat or any of those other group auditions if you are an equity member?

    definitely don't do Strawhats

    I can't imagine it would be worth it- I know both Strawhats and NETCs have mostly non-union theatres to begin with, and the union houses are there specifically looking for non-eq interns.

    StrawHat Auditions are non-Equity only, stated in their information. So you should not apply.

    Unifieds really don't do Union members any favors. Even the theaters that are Equity that end up attending, are usually on the low paying end even for Equity. No Union member that I know who's done Unifieds where Equity could attend found it worth it.
