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 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: side job VIPkid 07/21/2018  7:14pm

    I just want to let all the naysayers (because I was one) that VIPkid is legit. I got the job and started this last week. It is legit. After my first week I started to get multiple (MORE) bookings and my annual income will start to be at a comfortable living wage with my other P/T job if the hours remain the same. Just a heads up. It is a damn good find for those like me who is over catering.


    Yep! Happy to help answer any questions anyone may have


    Would be a great thing to get started now so booking are steady come audition season!

    what's the pay like? :)

    depending on your experience i think they advertise $16-22 an hour. i have a TEFL (ESL teaching) certificate plus years of experience with kids so my base was a little higher than others.

    they start you at a base pay per class, and then every class that you finish teaching + if you teach a certain amount of classes per month, you get more $$ on top of that. my average was about $20/hour)
