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

    Quick question, bus has anyone every worked for Theatre Aspen? Anyone done their apprenticeship? I couldn’t find much about them so I thought I’d ask here. Any and all help appreciated.


    Great apprenticeship! Exceptional casts. Beautiful place to spend the summer. No grunt work. You can work (for money) at concessions if you want/have time. Great shared housing. Probably the best-kept-secret-apprenticeship!

    Did you see this?

    I see they only accept current college students or recent grads--do you think that means upcoming 2018 grads only, or do 2016/2017 grads count?

    There was a range of ages in this last "class." I definitely think 2017 grads would be accepted. Shoot them an email perhaps?

    Was a past apprentice. Best contract of my career so far (although I know that if I'm young enough to have been an apprentice, my career is fairly short).

    Fair to mention that TA has recently gone through a leadership shift, and so the program may function differently going forward than it has in previous years.

    Can't speak to the graduation year thing (all the apprentices my year were still in school, had just graduated, or were grad students), but I think they phrase it that way because a lot of the additional things that you get to do as an apprentice (workshops, etc) are geared towards getting the apprenti ready for a career/life shift into the professional world, which wouldn't be...super helpful if you've already been on that grind for a few years. Just my $0.02--but I agree, it's worth an email! This program is a gem.
