What is Backstage?

Our Story

For over 50 years, Backstage has been the most trusted place for actors and performers to find jobs and career advice, and for casting professionals and talent seekers to find the right performers for their projects.

Today, Backstage is the largest online casting platform in the United States, with over 4,000 roles posted every week, and over 100,000 members building their careers on the platform. We have also expanded our services into the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

Casting professionals can take advantage of sophisticated application management tools to make the job of finding the perfect performer a breeze.


Backstage for Talent

Backstage receives over 4,000 roles each week covering every type of project, casting all across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

A team of casting experts review each casting notice posted to ensure the quality and legitimacy of the project, and to quickly reject any illegitimate listings. No other casting service takes the steps we do to protect performers.

We take the safety and privacy of our members seriously, with the customer success team always available to respond to any questions or issues you may have on your journey as a performer.
