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

Gig&Tell: Horn in the West

    Worked there 2 summers ago, and It was the best summer of my life. Boone is the cutest and best little town, the people are so lovely. The show, however, had some rough times. Its all outdoor, including rehearsals in the rain or shine, un- air conditioned dressing rooms and backstage. Housing was nice at App state though. The theatre and its creatives, though a bit run down and old, have such heart. The pay is little to nothing, but I wouldn't trade my memories at Horn for anything. Its basically summer camp once the show opens. One great thing offered is the stage combat workshop every summer. I didn't take it myself, but my castmates who did all earned their certification in some area of stage combat. Overall, it was a great one time gig, and I had the time of my life. For someone pursuing musical theatre however, its not a place I will be returning to. Gotta love outdoor dramas!!

    Shitty housing, low pay, absurd rehearsal hours, and the best fucking summer of my entire fucking life.
