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

  • Not really a bitch, more out of curiosity... 07/11/2018  5:02pm

    Before I get chided etc., I am working on credits project etc, but I continue to wonder: why do almost all directing MFA’s require almost extensive professional experience to qualify? Again, I am working on getting projects off the ground, etc (ususally at personal cost), and do reach out to assist, but i still wonder why MFA’s require so much experience as 1: don’t you in school to learn? And 2: if you’re making progress professionally why would you want to stop and go to school? I suppose you can compare professional experience to an audition, but I feel like it’s not quite the same thing. I can also think of a number of actors who make directing debuts without any previous experience. Again, I’ll shut up and get to work, but I’m still curious.
