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

    We had no audiences for most performances for the summer 2012. The admin didn't do much in getting audiences either (800 seat theater.) 1day off every two weeks. Pay was low. Housing very far from theater. If you don't have your own car, you feel stranded where you are living (cuz you can't go anywhere.) they don't offer EMC points anymore. Normally 1 week rehearsal (6 days) is crazy.

    LOVED working here! Really nice people, fantastic housing, and high quality shows. Quick contract too, which means room for more summer work!

    Great time - I hope I can work there again!

    Couldn't agree more! The company manager is on top of everything and helpful, everyone is extremely professional, the production values are high and they hire some great talent. I would work there again in a heartbeat. Nice gym (free tanning, whaaaat?), decent housing, great people. That being said, I recommend bringing your own vehicle if you can. The housing is a real trek from any shops or restaurants and while they'll drive you wherever you need to go, you'd have to ask for a ride anywhere but the gym/pool.

    What are the average contract lengths here?

    Theatre is under completely different management. Everything about it has changed since the previous posts except the name.

    Any updates on this theater? What are things one should be aware of?
