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: Old Castle Theatre Company

  • Great place to work.

    (It's actually "Oldcastle"-One word.) Surrounded by Vermont mountains, Bennington is a gorgeous, little town and the theatre recently moved right onto Main Street into an old Knights of Columbus Hall (which they renovated heavily). Awesome, challenging hiking in the area, good restaurants, best chocolate shop ever.:) Production quality varies but is usually pretty good. Rehearsal hall is on-sight. Housing is with wonderful, local folks. Somewhat tough nut to crack casting-wise (They have their "family" of actors and SM's they use), and you'll probably have to work another job (AEA min. is $390 a week) or live really cheaply. But the people are very kind, talented, small town folk and the quality of work is often very high. Season shows are eclectic and adventurous. Worth it.

    Thank you for taking the time to post! It helps me!
