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 agree. It is not how people get real jobs. It is an old idea that is just out of touch and allows things to get out of control and responsibility in the matter or have changing rules. Like I listed above one of the definitions of bitch is ABUSE ....next

    The metrics surrounding the increase of users on our site on both the acting side and the casting side, plus our expansion into the UK, Austrailia, and other countries suggests otherwise. There are more people using Backstage than ever.

    However, for the sake of a useful conversation, what in your opinion would be a more "updated" way to cast and get cast? How do you hear about and get jobs in your community? We're interested in learning new ways that people are getting work.

    The casting segment is as good as the market provides. Actor 101 is kind of lame. Not much has been updated since 2016. The forum is no good. Filled with pay for play writers giving advice. Now I understand why teenage posters from Dubai are asking about how to get an agent in America, since your global expansion. But, since I've been at this awhile, I don't really read the advice, just looking for auditions, so there's that.
