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

  • EMC/Non-Eq unofficial list Question- Portland Center Stage 05/23/2018  10:40pm

    Bear with me... just moved back to NY after many years and it’s been awhile since I’ve auditioned at the Equity building- as EMC/non-eq, how would an unofficial list work in the early morning— will someone usually just tape it outside the building or will they hold it at the front desk like at Pearl? Thanks!


    If you're at the Equity building, there are no unofficial lists. Whether one is Equity, an EMC or non-Equity, all lists are signed for and initially maintained in the 4th floor lounge until the monitor allows Equity members and EMCs to proceed to the 16th floor to sign up for audition slots. Outside of AEA (at Pearl, Ripley Grier or NOLA, it is possible to start an unofficial list for non-Eqs, either taped to the wall outside the studio building, or at the front desk at Pesrl 500. Whether the group(sl conducting the audition will accept them is another matter.

    Thank you so very much SusanCD. One other question, how early does the 4th floor open?

    Also side note, something that has never happened have been unofficial EMC lists. You always line up.

    But FYI at the AEA building EMC now sign up on the official list downstairs starting at 6am and cannot go upstairs until the call begins.
