Tells me I need to subscribe 1/5
I have subscribed but it won’t let me access any of the subscriber features :/
So I can’t apply from my app…?? If everything i do sends me straight to the website anyway what’s the point of the app?
Kinda a retarded app- some good ideas messed up by a bad search and menu layout… I find it funny how apps like this like to hide really basic buttons. Reverse search would be ideal. I also only need two genders; anymore i can hire an FX artist.

Lately the app is tedious in selecting your photos, media and appropriate cv. It selects and I selects things and it takes forever to apply for a casting because you can’t star and select the media you’re trying to choose
Finishing account 2/5
By it told me to rate. 5 stars
The app won’t allow me to finish making my account. Is this a bug? Or am I doing something wrong?
actor as 5/5
Needs work 4/5
Seeing as im paying for this to get roles as an actor i dont like that i see regular jobs on here like for bartenders and things completely unrelated to acting or talent
I have used backstage for a year now. I am not going to speak on the credibility of the castings, as I have not experienced any issues in that aspect. It’s a good platform with potential. The subscription to apply to castings is where the scamming happened to me 2x!!! I am a college student I don’t have money to be scammed out of lol. So I would just highly recommend that you use a different website to find castings. I still haven’t gotten either of my refunds back. I will no lonely be using it. Luckily I live 30 minutes away from the NYC office so I will be visiting to speak to a customer rep hopefully they can help.
App suggestion 2/5
By user of kindemaster
Immediately when I went on the app I couldn’t apply for a role and I think that you should make those without a subscription because most of the reasons why people download the app is to find a role in something and following their dream, especially new actors like me!
The age 2/5
Is there anyway I can act and not being 16!im 13 and I’m really interested so like is there anyway I can act?cause this is the only app I actually trust but is just the age 😕I really wanna do this I wanna make my parents proud so is there anyway :)!
Got help for customer service very helpful
Not worth the money 1/5
Don’t get me wrong they have A LOT of ‘jobs’ listed but they just don’t cast there must be a system that puts other users ahead or something because I’m not having the same experience as any of these positive comments. And that’s just that
When I sign up in the beginning and pick a country America is not there so I just delete the app
Review for Backstage App 5/5
Very simple to use once you get oriented with the app
Missed Opportunities 2/5
I don’t get notifications for when a director asks me to audition or asks me about my availability. How am I supposed to do business that way? I can’t be checking the app every 10 seconds!!!!
The app asks you if you’re under sixteen, or if you’re older than sixteen. I don’t turn sixteen until 4 months but It requires to see proof of an ID which I don’t have. Can you not create a profile without having an ID?
Hey, I really love this app but when I downloaded it, it’s saids 12+ and I am 13 years old and they don’t really have a lot of acting rolls for 13 year olds and I was really disappointed because of that but other then that this app is really good
By Bella Harter
Hi! I’m a 13 year old (trying to be) actress! The app says that it is for people 12+. It says, when I put in my birthday, that I need a passport or driver’s license. Is that for everyone or am I just to young? It doesn’t matter now but still, I haven’t told my mom that I found this app and I want it to be a surprise if and whenever I get a call back BUT I need her credit card or something in order to actually get one sooooooo. Idk if this is a problem or anything. Also, great app, great interface, great EVERYTHING!
If you wanna act, and star your career, actors access is the way to go.
Paul Williams Actor 5/5
By King Paulie
I just started using the app. It’s a really good app to have. Everything is right at your fingertips, now if I can just get a job. I’ll let you guys know the outcome.
Good starting point- somewhat 3/5
By sooo much better than clash
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.
You have to have it. Period.
R E F U N D 1/5
I downloaded “Backstage”, for not even a full month. Browsing through, reading “applications” trying to keep up with the qualifications since I’m a beginner and used this app as my first step. Today, finally I “subscribed” to a monthly agreement thinking they were all the same just longer timing meaning more money., So I said why not try the 19.99 subscription so I can see were it goes...
I’m still not able to apply to any of these jobs and I’m upset because I was really excited about this app and the fact I invested my money and received nothing is a total rip off and I would love a refund.
Callback Lost! 4/5
II’ve been a subscriber for several years and have been enjoying the app for quite a while! Up until recently it was working great. I just found a call back on my laptop that was nowhere to be found on my iOS app. And now a week later I’m sitting here with egg on my face with a Director and a producer who think I am a flake now. I realize it’s technology and I am going to call customer support. But please fix this!
I LOVE THIS!! 5/5
It’s amazing app!! Especially if you’re just starting out!!
Money Grubbers 1/5
I have canceled this subscription three times and they continue to steal $19.99 from me every month! I guess I’ll have to change my credit card to get rid of you!
I wish I spent $75 and actually got 1 audition!
Went to sign up for the app, payed $100 for it and all of a sudden it then says I never signed up and that I need to sign up again, whether it was on accident or they are too stupid to create an app to recognize payments that were already paid makes it a 0 star for me if I could, so I’ll just settle with a 1 star.
Add voiceover support on mobile! 4/5
I love how easy it is the apply to most jobs through the mobile app, but I hope they add support for voiceover roles soon!
Getting upset 3/5
By why do i need to do thus
I’m honestly getting really upset. I pay for a membership on this app, and it won’t let me upload any videos, pictures, anything that you obviously NEED for an audition. I’m getting upset. We pay money for this. So please fix it. Or I’m cancelling and asking for a full refund. I didn’t pay for this to not get any of my pictures or info out there.
As a young to be actress this app is the best and most reliable actors app besides (actors access). But beyond that this is a great app but its VERY expensive but is it worth it? Low-key, yes there are so many things that you can do with a membership. As make your own profile to get noticed and so many other things. I would love to have a membership and just to get noticed by agents would be a blessing! So if you can afford it I would go for it.
I can’t create a profile I try then I makes me sign something then I dosent do anything thing
Thank you Backstage 5/5
Backstage really sets the bar high. I recently needed to suspend my account due to financial issues, and Stephanie (backstage rep) emailed my personal email and found a feasible solution for me. I truly do appreciate the efforts as they were so unexpected. It feels good not to feel like a number and this company actually cares about the community they serve.
Impossible to use 1/5
Please fix the app. I downloaded and paid for 3 months about a week ago and the app is impossible to use. Whenever I’m browsing and begin to scroll down, the app page automatically refreshes and kicks me right back to the top of the page making it impossible for me to browse listings. I tried to turn off the background app refresh the in my settings but I cannot do that as the function is grayed out. Please, I am very disappointed as I have paid and feel like I threw away my money.
Backstage is awesome! 5/5
By slumber needed
Intuitive and easy to use! I’ve submitted myself from my phone today for the first time and it was so easy!
Don’t use this app it ask for way to much information ask you to take a picture of your birth certificate and license it also makes you try to pay monthly or yearly !
By it is co
It’s hard for iPhones
Not fair 3/5
On the app it says 16 and over but on apple 12+ like make up your mind kinda wanna be actors
I’m lucky to do this now 5/5
I’ve heard horror stories of auditions gone bad. Backstage is a step in the right direction for a career path that has always had a rocky reputation.
No profile 3/5
I can’t set up my profile, it takes me to the box for my parent to mark for if I’m under 16 which I’m not so I don’t know why I need it, but once I mark the box (with parents consent) it doesn’t do anything, it doesn’t take me to anything and if I try to exit it, it resets
THIS APP LITERALLY TOOK MY MONEY 1/5
I paid the monthly subscription & keep saying I didn’t :/, what type of scamming are y’all running ?
Where is customer service ?? 3/5
So I invested on this app and bought the 3 month trial. I want to start applying for opportunities but, THE APP WONT ALLOW ME TO MAKE MY PROFILE. It freezes after the agreement that a patent is with me and authorizes my account. I sent like 6 emails and NONE have been answer. I send those email with a screen recording of what’s happening. I’m truly disappointed and want my money back!
WHY IS THERE NOT AN APP FOR ANDROID!?? 4/5
My son uses Backstage all the time, but he has an android phone and has to go either on the computer or online on his phone! WHY IS THERE NOT AN APP FOR ANDROID PHONES???? Not all Backstage users have an iPhone! Get with the program!!! 😡
Backstage at its usual transparent greatness
It probably works great if you’re willing to spend $100.
Scrolling issue 4/5
This app has had a scrolling issue for months. It’s really frustrating to use.
says i need to upgrade to apply but i did upgrade 1/5
i paid the monthly sub fee and every time i try to apply it says i need to subscribe. but i did and it still won’t let me apply???
Suggestions for me 5/5
Any suggestions for starting actors? I want to be an actor but don’t know where to start I like this app though
Don’t waste ur time 1/5
So, I am a model and wanted to take up acting as well but I think it’s bull that you get paid to pay them um no
