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

    Family and Friend ran theatre so they care about the professionalism and spirit of good live theatre. Small space - but excellent set designers and lighting designers give it a real fine quality feeling. Pretty responsive audiences and a friendly supportive talented creative team. The equity apartment above the theatre is so convenient and well maintained and Kalamazoo is a fun little city worth eating and drinking in. Hopefully they build their name and their credentials and can expand the size of their theatre company so they can continue bringing quality theatre to Michigan.

    I've done 3 shows at this theatre and had a wonderful experience each time. They hire a lot of local to fill out the casts, and help a lot of non-union actors get their EMC cards. The quality of work here is incredible and they hire a lot of legit directors from all over the country so you make great connections!

    The apartment they have above the theatre is really well furnished and taken care of. And they have a company car for actors to use.

    Kalamazoo is a great town with an incredible beer scene (you know if you're a beer snob like me), and you'll work with a lot of very talented students from WMU as well as local actors.

    I will gladly go back and will continue to submit for this theatre.
