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

    adobedoggo 10/23/2018  11:11am

    Hey guys- it looks like they have just seen EMC so far, not non-eq. They will be seeing non-eq time permitting but they have not released non-eq yet. I’ll keep you posted!

    TaylorJ 10/23/2018  11:20am

    yas1234 10/23/2018  11:47am

    TaylorJ 10/23/2018  12:32pm

    TaylorJ 10/23/2018  12:34pm

    Is this crowded for AEA? What's the alternate list like?

    sneakypete 10/23/2018  12:41pm

    Who is in the room today? What link do we click on exactly to get to the backstage site for this thread?

    The casting call says to 'please note any guitar / instrument skills'... does this mean we can/should bring/play our instrument/s in the audition as part of our piece? Or bring a piece with sheet music and our instrument separately? Or not bring an instrument at all?



    Arealniceclambake 10/20/2018  10:54am

    unless they specifically say they only want sheet music why not bring your instrument if it can accompany you? if it's to cumbersome just make sure you've highlighted your ability on your resume.

    Tecoloteseesall 10/20/2018  4:25pm

    Are there appointments out for this yet

    Jdance 10/20/2018  10:17pm

    ^ I have not noticed this show come out in the agent breakdowns yet, so I assume there are no appointments out.

    Snarky 10/21/2018  11:23am

    ^ now breakdowns are out. good luck!

    Snarky 10/22/2018  3:52pm

    This listings are confusing for this. Is there an EPA tomorrow? Or was it completely moved to the 29th?

    Kitty94 10/22/2018  7:24pm

    *these listings.

    Kitty94 10/22/2018  7:24pm

    Bump on the confusion of dates. Anyone have any clarity?

    TheGhostOfChristmasPast 10/22/2018  9:18pm

    I mean it looks to me like there are 3 days. One tomorrow, one the 29th, one the 31st. Right?

    Dr. Steve Brule 10/22/2018  9:31pm

    ^I assume so. Just poppin in to make sure I'm not crazy.

    Kitty94 10/22/2018  10:35pm

    Is tomorrow’s (10/23) EPA at equity or Pearl? I know some days were at Equity and some were at Pearl and now that the posts are down from playbill I can’t recall

    Tranyc56 10/22/2018  10:41pm

    Tomorrow is at Pearl!

    MixedActor 10/22/2018  11:10pm we think that means they won’t see non-eq tomorrow at all? I didn’t think this was a required call?

    cleverusername 10/22/2018  11:38pm

    They're not seeing Non-Equity at all and these are the required calls.

    MixedActor 10/22/2018  11:50pm

    Does this mean no EMC as well?

    goelle24601 10/23/2018  12:11am

    I would assume so, but if anyone has insight, please let me know

    CDM0713 10/23/2018  5:10am

    Non-eq list is up to #5 and there are 3 EMCs waiting in line

    AJAYS24 10/23/2018  6:29am

    Even if they decide to not see non union if you’re EMC and get on the list before lunch they have to see you as per Equity rules. They may only have equtiy contracts available and so they truly might not be considering anyone non equity (emc included) but they do have to see you as an EMC, so show up and get seen!

    bluebird137 10/23/2018  9:15am

    Are you sure? If that's the case then why do they release EMC at EPA's when there are a lot of alternates? Can anyone confirm if they are seeing EMC?

    MixedActor 10/23/2018  9:27am

    Umm yea that’s BS they DO NOT have to see any EMC’s that sign up before lunch...

    They don’t even have to see all equity alternates that sign up.

    ireallyreallywantajob 10/23/2018  9:44am

    Non eqs released. Accepting drop offs. WILL see EMC.

    JessicaJones 10/23/2018  9:49am

    How’s this lookin for emc? Trains suck right now

    CDM0713 10/23/2018  11:15am

    Can someone please post who is in the room after lunch? Thanks!
