Non-Backstage talent can get a one time pass to apply to a specific role on a project on Backstage if the job poster sends them an invitation. This process allows talent to easily create an account and apply to the role without purchasing a subscription. To apply to future opportunities on the site, a subscription would be required. If you are a recipient of one of these invitations, please see the steps below for how to respond.
Responding to an Invitation
First, open the email with the invitation. Click on the Accept or Decline Invitation button.
This will take you to a landing page to sign up. On the left hand side of the page, you can review the Production Details and Role Description for the casting notice. If you've also received an audition request, you will see the audition information under Audition Details.
On the right hand side of the screen, you can create your account. Fill out the form and then press Create Account.
You will see an Age Confirmation pop up screen asking you to confirm that you are either over 16 years old or under 16 years old. Press the appropriate button.
If over 16 years old, you will then be asked to enter your date of birth to verify your age . Enter your date in the MM/DD/YYYY format. Press Next.
**If under 16, the parental consent form must be filled out by the parent or guardian.
You can now fill out the basic section of your profile. For step by step instructions, check out our guide here: Creating your Talent Profile
