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

    Beautiful location, great space, terrific people.

    Only thing this theater has going for it is the proximity to the beach. staff is clueless and is not the most willing to learn. Be prepared to not even have ditty bags...wardrobe staff was going to wash our underwear in a giant pile and expected the cast to pick thru the pile to find undergarments every nite...WTF!!! And good luck finding Connie, the head of wardrobe. We were a super small cast and she was soo overwhelmed she "checked out" and would hardly ever come backstage to help her staff figure out costume/quick changes the way a decent supervisor should. Cast was tricked into going to an "opening nite party" which was really a reception for the donors that we made an appearance at post show. Could smell food wafting into the dressing rooms all nite and when we were finally thru with the show, weren't even offered the leftovers...on opening nite!!!!
    There was a white supremacist rally and nobody from the theater extended a hand to the cast members of color to make sure they were alright and felt safe in the midst of all the unrest. On a separate occasion, a cast member of color was verbally assaulted with a racist rant on the street.
    This theater does not operate on a professional level. Made us feel like we should be grateful just to be in Laguna Beach. Never going back and am letting everyone know to think twice about working there. Beautiful locale tho... but beware!!!
