Don't try Backstage!- its a SCAM!

Dont ever go to this so called site to be discovered!- if u want to be an actress or a singer!- u will be very disappointed!- and pissed!- i tried them earlier tonight to give it a chance for once!- to see if its worth it! And beware of Stephanie!- the so called staff rep! to help u get started!- its just a trap for her to get your money! And i signed ul and asked for a free trial option! And she said yes! And i tried it!- but i quickly regretted it when i put in my info to get a month for free!- because they still asked for my credit card number! Why?!- if its free! And then when i tried it out anyway!- only becaus there should be no charge until my free month is over!- but then when i try to set up my profile and post my headshots and resume of my talent and skills and past work! Nothing!- they just had me go around in circles! I tried over and over! And they wouldnt let it work not even one photo! But they make sure your credit card info goes thru just fine! Thats all! Nothing else will!- believe me i know that now! This talent agency for acting is nothing but a Scam! You will not never get discovered here! No matter what they say or tell u!- dont believe it! Its all a lie!! That stephanie is just a bait to get your credit card number! And take your money! Beware! Ill never try them again! And i already asked that scam artist stephanie to cancel my account and my suscription! Thanks for nothing and goodbye! So stay away!- go for the real ones!- not Backstage!

Backstage Casting Scam Peter Rappaport CEO Disgraced and Ruined Me! is a scam, they lure actors into paying for a service that promises you to get acting gigs, all they want is your money. The CEO is a failed wanna be tech guy who saw a opportunity to pick pocket actors in NYC and LA Peter Rappaport is CEO at Backstage, where he is responsible for the company's long-term strategy and corporate development. Prior to joining Backstage, Peter began his career as a buy side equity analyst focusing on small undervalued public companies before transitioning to Technology & Media investment banking. Peter is also an active angel investor focusing on online marketplaces, eCommerce platforms and B2B mobile services. He operated and sold his first business while still an undergrad, and has served as a director of both public and private companies. Peter received a Bachelors degree in Arts and Sciences from Washington University in St. Louis. He is a Mets fan. One of his criminal cronnies is Mike Mepham from Sonic Bids who also works for backstage - they are like a gang! Stay away from these people they charged my card for $9.95 a month for a year and could not cancel.

Why is having a BA degree and liking the Mets a bad thing? Im signed up with them and so far its been pretty good.

I think you meant to say they charged your card 19.95$ monthly. But I paid for the annual subscription which is a lot cheaper, and a one-time payment of 144$. They are seriously the best casting website on the internet.

They don't just post legit auditions, they post legit jobs for models, actors, AND musicians. Most sites only focus on one talent.
