When you are just starting out in the industry, finding auditions can be tough. Most people will say the best way to book an appointment or find auditions would be to join BackStage, or to have an agent. These memberships and services are great, and can be incredibly helpful, but if you are a starving artist with a tight budget, here are some FREE ways to learn about the next casting calls! Here are a few of them!
www.playbill.com - Has an awesome job search function. Doesn’t just have casting opportunities but other industry positions as well! Also includes a filter system, so you can search by location, union/non-union, paid/unpaid, internships, and more! You can find auditions for broadway calls and more here!
www.broadwayworld.com - Similar to Playbill, not quite as immersive and organized, but you can see the auditions listed by audition date, rather than the date it was posted on the site like on playbill, which I personally like.
At the audition studios! - Pearl, Ripley Grier, and Actors Equity also have casting call boards where you can look for more auditions! You can also make connections with other industry professionals by taking their classes and workshops they have available! Be sure next time you go to an audition there to scope out their casting board, you never know what useful information you find!
Facebook, Twitter, and More - There are plenty of public and private casting call groups on social media to help you find more opportunities. Much of it tends to be local, community, and amateur, but you shouldn’t turn down every opportunity to hone your craft if you find something that resonates with you as an artist.
