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

    Trying to sign up on the website is such a joke. The website can't support all the traffic it gets at 12pm, so I've been shut out again consistently. There has to be a better way.

    Legit drawing names out of a hat would be more efficient than this mess

    I've had a 30-50% rate of success getting through online, however my favorite time slot is not always still available when I get through, and I would have to choose a less desirable (for me) time slot.

    Going in person super early (like 7:15 AM) to the 4th floor at AEA on the day of the audition, usually results in my getting the time slot I need/want though. So, you might need to go back to the old fashioned early arrival/early sign in method in order to get the audition time slot you need/want.

    SAME ughhh. I’ll hit refresh at 12 and it will literally just never load. It just crashes. It never even refreshes until all the slots are filled. I’ve tried everything. It’s incredibly frustrating.

    The site was wonky this week. I hope it’s not going to be like that all season.
