For over 60 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, the company has grown to include the StarNow brand. Thousands of roles are posted every week on the sites, and there are 250,000+ members building their careers on the platforms. Our services are prevalent within the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.
While Backstage and StarNow are owned by the same company, they are unique communities with different job opportunities and talent databases. Having memberships to both platforms will give you access to the most job opportunities and increase your visibility to casting directors and employers.
Casting professionals can take advantage of sophisticated application management tools to make the job of finding the perfect performer a breeze.
Backstage & StarNow for Talent
Backstage & StarNow receive thousands of roles each week covering every type of project, casting all across the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, and New Zealand.
A team of casting experts reviews 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.
