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 know there are appointments today, tomorrow, and Monday, and possibly some later this week... Mine is today. Everyone post about your experiences here!


    If the breakdown is available outside the room, could someone post a brief overview? The Playbill listing had a breakdown but the sides they sent didn't have any type of role description.

    Is this audition still on? What was your experience today?

    I am assuming they are still on, for I got an email confirming my appt, which is later tonight. Will let everyone know how it goes.

    Hi all, we are accepting drop ins all day and there will be a stipend.

    The breakdown is as follows:
    Reading is Dec 2
    Sadie Plumcott [CAST] - A young spunky dreamer working at her uncle’s gas station. She has dreams of being a famous singer and works hard to make them come true.

    Arnold St. James - Nashsouth’s local meteorologist. He is as American as a Norman Rockwell painting of apple pie. He’s a storm chaser and very content with the life he has built for himself. He is sincere and kind.

    Uncle Benny - Sadie’s uncle and owner of Benny’s Gas Station. He is a gruff straight-shooter who is very wary of Sadie’s lofty dreams and believes in honest work. His sister, Sadie’s mother, was a very destructive woman, and he feels protective of Sadie because of this.

    Eddy - Sadie’s coworker and childhood friend, Eddy is a blue collar American everyman. He’s not the biggest fish in the pond, but he’s just fine with small town life.

    Carlotta - Feisty, smart, and competitive. She’s Sadie’s best friend and very loyal. She and Eddy have an on-again/off-again relationship.

    Odysseus Danger - The coolest. He is Nashsouth’s resident mysterious drifter. He follows the wind and road wherever they lead.

    Alexandra - She’s Nashsouth’s most popular girl. She’s fierce, proud, and vain. She grows to learn that life isn’t as easy as it seems when you are young.

    Melanie - …She ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed. One of Alexandra’s friends, she’s very excitable.

    Jessica R. - Alexandra’s ‘yes-man.’ She thinks she’s the smart one of the group.

    thank you so much for the updates!

    theatre559 11/12/2017  10:30am

    Could anyone post who was in the room today (Sunday 11/12)? I think it was mostly the same people but I want to be sure. Thanks!

    Lbbbby 11/12/2017  11:22am

    could any auditionees give me a bit of input? Are you singing rock musical theatre or straight up rock? Did you memorize one of the sides or will you be holding the paper when you read? Thanks! ❤️

    beltingbadass 11/12/2017  12:09pm

    Was I supposed to receive a confirmation email for my appointment later? Someone above said they received one ^

    beltingbadass 11/12/2017  3:32pm

    Everyone in the room was so lovely, receptive, and positive! And everyone that I heard before and after me was singing pop/rock.

    jrmcats89 11/12/2017  7:13pm

    What a kind and sweet room. They were just the coolest people I have auditioned for. Good Luck to everyone who auditioned

    Bwayhereicome 11/12/2017  8:15pm

    I had a wonderful time auditioning for them :) there are auditions tomorrow too right?

    beltingbadass 11/12/2017  10:09pm

    Are they seeing walk-ins today?

    Rain On my Parade 11/13/2017  9:44am

    Where is this audition?!

    bway145 11/13/2017  9:47am

    BUMP - could someone who's there ask if they're seeing walk ins today? Thanks!

    glitterandbegay212 11/13/2017  11:31am

    Has anyone confirmed whether hey are taking walk-ins?

    highvoltage 11/13/2017  1:23pm

    Honestly I'm sure they are. They took them all day yesterday and they took some on Saturday too. I would be very surprised if they couldn't fit you in today.

    beltingbadass 11/13/2017  1:40pm

    What is the time frame of this audition today? I can't find a listing for this anywhere...

    Okayokay 11/13/2017  2:41pm

    Are there any more days of auditions for this or are they done? The playbill post isn't up anymore so I can't see :-(

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 11/13/2017  11:06pm

    Wondering the same thing
