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

  • Do I Need to Lose Weight? 07/22/2018  2:35pm

    A fellow poster brought this up earlier. Am I too fat to be cast? I know I’m not skinny, but at 450 pounds (albeit 5’11) I feel like I still have a ways to go before I’m automatically typed as “obese.” I want to book leading roles, and I can handle the physical rigors of an 8 show a week schedule, but I feel like casting feels the other way. How do I prove to the powers in the room that I can good with the rest of them? I see myself as thin, radiant, leading-man type, but the world see’s differently. I’m tired of only going out for the Fat Mayor or Fat Uncle.


    A good way to get them to change their minds is to sit on them

    Or threaten legal action if they don’t see you as thin

    and being heavy certainly didn't hurt his career.
