New Casting, Job, Festival, and Workshop Categories on Back Stage help talent discover new opportunities

Castingyoucantrust_clapboardseal_2 The Back Stage Casting Department is pleased to announce the addition of a variety of new casting, job, and festival categories, designed to help our readers discover even more career-advancing opportunities. At the same time, we've retired some of our old categories. But rest assured, we'll continue to deliver all of quality notices that you've come to expect from Back Stage, plus many more—you just might find some notices in different categories than before.

The following is a brief overview of some of the key category changes to the Casting/Jobs section of Back Stage (in print and online):

The Reality TV casting category has been expanded to include casting calls for documentaries and some game shows; the Voiceover category now includes calls for radio talent; the Combined Auditions category has been retire, and all of the theatre notices that used to run there will instead be redistributed to the other theatre categories; the Club Talent category has been replaced with two new categories, Cabaret & Variety and Comedy & Improv; the Tradeshow category has been expanded to include special events that are seeking performers; and the Competitions category now includes a wider range of live, online, and recorded entertainment-industry contests.

Additionally, the Membership Companies category has been replaced with the informative new Groups & Workshops category, which includes various opportunities to participate in theatre, film, and TV learning experiences, repertory companies, community theatre groups, casting-director workshops, etc.; the old General category has been supplanted by the new Entertainment Jobs category, which includes a grab-bag of gigs for actors, performers, models, staff/crew, and more, as well as a mix of other actor-friendly job opportunities. Film, TV, video, and multimedia jobs calling for staff, tech, and crew are now located in our Film/TV Crew category. And, finally, we're launching a brand-new Film Festivals category, geared toward helping you find the best festivals to submit your films to (films you've acted in or made yourself), making sure that your talent reaches the widest audience possible.

We welcome your feedback, and hope you enjoy these latest updates from the Back Stage Casting Department.

Sincerely,

Luke Crowe, National Casting Editor
