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

  • Legally Blonde non union tour dance call 09/20/2018  10:39am

    what’s the plan for tomorrow? since it’s non eq there won’t be any unofficial lists right? I know some people have audition slots too. call is @ 10am I’m thinking to be there at like 8a. Thoughts, tips, plans?


    Is this just a dance call or are they seeing guys sing for male principals?

    babydriverNYC, they’re doing a male dance call but i’m not sure on hearing for principal male roles.

    Are people from the dance call hearing ITR about callbacks? Or does it seem like it will be email?

    We heard in the room about callbacks for Monday!

    Nyc12345678 09/21/2018  2:36pm

    SORRY! I was already called back form an appointment to dance, and they asked maybe 15/20 of us to come back on Monday. Not from the open call today
