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

    Hey Guys!
    So the case of “came back from a contract and my old job doesn’t wanna hire me back because I might leave again” happened. Are there any recomendations for companies that like actors and might be hiring? Thanks so much =)

    Might get better traction in Bitching Post section, just label it NAB, which stands for "not a bitching" post. Also look up Great Performances for cater waiter jobs

    Topnotch events pays $20 per hour for catering. Register with them.

    i work for a company called vip kid teaching english to kids in china. its super easy, you work from home, you make your own schedule, and make around $20/hour.

    they have their own skype type of platform. kids book you based on your open slots, and you teach a 25 min lesson. (i literally teach in my pajamas). practically no prep time and you can stay home and work based on your availability. perfect job for actors, in my opinion.

    check it out here- t.vipkid.com.cn

    Also work for VIPKID mentioned above and it has truly been an amazing way for me to audition and still make at least $1500 a month.

    Also there are several catering companies and most should pay 22-25 starting... 20 is very low for catering. Check out Thomas Preti, Cleaver Catering Company (both start at $24/hr) also check out Creative Edge Parties and Pinch Food Design.

    Apple is an artist friendly employer. They also offer great benefits for part-timers. What’s your email? I can refer you

    Hey! For those of you who work for VIP, do you need to have a bachelors to qualify for this job? I only have an associates, would that disqualify me from being able to do this? I thought that is what I read at one time but wanted to make sure?! TIA!

    thankssomuchnext 05/25/2018  8:54pm

    @thankssomuchnext: yeah, you need a bachelor of arts to qualify for the job (they recently got super strict about this and require you to send over your degree) and at least 1 years experience working with kids (you can totally embelish the working with kids part though)

    mkat8 05/25/2018  10:20pm

    I’ve also worked at VIP, but I made more than what some other users are posting. I’m assuming that’s due to my degree type (summa cum lauds BA from an Ivy League with a double major in theater and economics plus a minor in English...yes I had no life in college). I also work as a tutor in-person through care.com and I make $75/hour for that. This may not help those with an associates degree, but if you have a bachelor’s and are able to tutor English/test prep then this is definitely the way to go.

    Please excuse all my typing errors! Autocorrect hates me! Anyway, just trying to say that tutoring is a great option!
