    About Us

    For more than 50 years, Backstage has been the most trusted place for actors to find career advice and casting information. Today, the Backstage brand signifies something greater than simply casting notices: Backstage is a place where actors, singers, dancers, and all performers can connect with the greater performing arts community.

    More importantly, Backstage is where performers can get all the information they need to succeed in the entertainment business, from what makes a great headshot to which acting coach may be right for them. And of course, actors browse through our casting notices.

    Backstage takes pride in having the most up-to-date technology, whether you are creating a multimedia résumé or viewing casting notices. Upload your résumé, post photos, upload a reel—all can be done with the touch of a button.

    But none of that technology means anything without the job listings. And we have the best notices in the business. Backstage publishes over 1,500 top casting notices each week for thousands of roles covering every type of performance: film, stage, TV, commercials, multimedia, dance, voiceovers, singing, and more. Included are opportunities for both adults and children. Plus, we offer ads seeking people in related fields, such as stage/film crews, models, musicians, and writers.
