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 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

    I did just finished an 18-MONTH contract with them and had an overall fantastic time. I've worked with several of the other nonEq touring companies and my experience here was definitely the best. I found that everyone that is a permeant fixture in the company (producers, admins, production managers, etc) do everything in their power to make the show run on its highest level and still create a 'family' atmosphere (i.e. not to Corporate-y). If you get a chance to be a part of one of their productions, you won't be disappointed.

    As an afterthought… We were a cast of 20 and over the 18 months we only lost 4 actors. That's pretty good retention considering I once did a 9 month contract with 12 replacements that came out throughout the run...
