Good interface, somewhat pricy

There are plenty of free casting options out there for actors starting out, but if you are focusing all your time and energy on acting, this does add a nice interface and some options that you won’t have other places. It is pricy, but if you are trying to act full time that might be worth it. Do watch yourself on renewals though - if you buy a years subscription, you will get billed for another full year automatically when it expires unless you set it to auto cancel. Overall though the good interface and ability to save auditions and reels can make this quite helpful.

sooo much better than clash ,

Good starting point- somewhat

The app has a good interface, a decent amount of users that make it simple to find auditions in your area. BUT you HAVE to subscribe for a fee to be able to apply to ANYTHING, even unpaid roles. Unfortunately, being an actor means paying a lot already out of pocket for things like headshots, travel, etc. I'd gladly pay like $5/month for the convenience of the app but $20/month just to apply to ANYTHING is kind of ridiculous, especially for unpaid roles which means you won't make back what you spent on the app to find an audition, let alone be cast. I'll keep this app in my back pocket for a future when I can afford it, but for now there are other resources available for the same purpose and a cheaper price. Additionally, maybe it's just me, but it didn't seem clear initially that you needed a subscription to be able to apply for ANYTHING. It wasn't until after I filled out my profile, scrolled through the listings, and found something of interest that I found out you cannot apply to anything without a subscription. At this point I just don't see the cost equalling the value of the app unless MAYBE you're in an area with a high concentration of jobs. Sorry to the developers, I know you need to make money too and it really seems like a good app, I just simply can't afford it.

Hi there, thanks for your feedback! The subscription was mentioned in the "Preview" section before you download the app, but we understand if you missed it. offers casting opportunities for actors and others in the film, television, and theater communities. In order to best support and maintain this service, users need to purchase a subscription in order to be able to apply to the casting notices posted on our site. This is not unlike other sites that offer access to castings. If you have further questions or feedback about our service, you are welcome to email us at ,

Works just enough to work

Maybe it’s an issue with having an [old?] iPhone 6, or the Yahoo! mail app (I know, “Who still uses Yahoo?! How do you not use gmail?!” I don’t know, its hard to change man.) But anyway, every time I click on a listing from a Backstage email to open separately from the Yahoo mail app in Safari, which would then automatically direct me to the Backstage app, almost half the time the app will NOT open on the listing. It opens on the castings page of the app instead and I have to do the tedious task of putting the title in the search bar. Also, I’ve updated the app and turned on notifications in Settings and the Backstage app to get my saved filter searches to send me listings I’m right for. But I never get notifications from the app. That’s why I have to still resort to counting on those emails which is frustrating because the Yahoo mail app and/or Safari is not always even compatible with the app. It’s super frustrating. Although sure, I could finally enter 2018 and get a Gmail account.
