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

  • NAB: Married and MFA 12/07/2017  3:47am

    Anyone get married before starting or during an MFA program for acting? How did you do it? Worth it? Ruin your relationship? Hold your acting back? Make everything easier?

    Would love to hear thoughts! Thanks so much!

    I had friends who got married while getting their MFA's, luckily for them, they were getting them at the same program, so i'm guessing this answer is of no help.

    But at the risk of sounding cheesy or presumptuous, in this horrible business i have found that you should always put your life and happiness first, so if getting married is what you need in life right now, then don't let getting an MFA worry or stop you from doing that (which i know wasn't part of your question, so i apologize again for over stepping). But you will find a way to make it work.

    My friend did and his wife was depressed the whole time cause she had to move to the south for two years and she’s an actress so there’s no opportunities to act there and no jobs she liked. You have to be ready for sacrifices. Th third year is an internship so he was away an entire year and she didn’t wanna come to the other place. That was the first 3 years of marriage. If u know u wanna be with that person forever then marry them. Not gonna be any different in a relationship at least marriage you’re makinf a comittment to making it work.

    Thanks for the replies!

    In my case, she's a non-actress (teacher). She been super encouraging of grad school, but I don't think she fully understands how hard it is going to be and the sacrifice made on our relationship/marriage.

    A girl in my class got married after second year. Totally doable.
