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

    LOVED my time here and rehearsing for the show in NYC- so nice! Definitely do it. Only problem was I wished the contract was longer!

    Does North Shore offer EMC points?

    I really enjoyed working at NSMT! Great people all around- fabulous cast, crew, and staff! Would definitely work there again.

    Housing is off-premise in hotel 'suites'. Decent size. You have a kitchenette etc. There were some people who reported bed bugs (yikes) but I did not have this problem personally.

    Cast shares cars to drive to the theatre.

    Good production quality. Fun place to work. Very professional all-around. (I mean it's an equity house so doesn't need a review really- it follows all the rules as it should).

    I loved it there! They really take care of you and just really good quality theatre. And working in the round is fun.

    Thanks for all the info! Any clue how many non-eq contracts they offer?

    NSMT is by far my favorite place I have worked. The staff is great, the shows are phenominal. The housing is great too- I would recommend this place to anyone who has the chance to work here!

    Does anybody know what the "local actor" pay/experience is like? Thanks!

    Non-Union "Local Actor" pay is about 60% less than the AEA minimum.

    NSMT is really really awesome. Worked there many times. All have been as a local non-eq but aside from the BIG pay difference, they are amazing. Production quality is incredible.

    Is there a per diem during rehearsals and/or performances? When you say kitchenette, that means not a full size kitchen correct? Do they pay for gas in the car beyond the mileage it takes to get to rehearsal space and theater?
