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

  • Substitute teaching as a day job 08/09/2018  10:16am

    Have any of you been a substitute teacher in NYC public schools as your day job?

    If so, how did you get a principal to nominate you? I'm interested in becoming a sub, and have emailed several principals, but haven't heard back yet.


    I have very outdated info on this, but will post just in case it is still valid. I can't vouch for it today.

    In 1998, I worked as a sub and got a couple regular gigs by 1. already having the credentials and certifications needed and 2. walking up to the school and saying I was there to speak with a "principal or vice principal about working as a substitute in this location." I got many interviews on the spot by just walking in and asking for them, then waiting around the office until they were available.

    Okay, thanks for the info! Come September, I’ll try going to schools directly.
