Casting & Auditions

Show Business has a longstanding reputation for its casting and audition notices.

When it was founded by Leo Shull in 1941, Show Business first introduced the concept of the casting notice in a printed weekly newspaper that sold for a dime in Times Square.

Audition and casting notices were difficult to come by at the time. It was all word of mouth and who you knew. Our founder wanted to make show business jobs more accessible to everyday actors.

Today, Leo’s tradition lives on more than ever. We help thousands of performers every day advance their acting careers to the next level.

If you’re thinking about getting into show business or if you already have experience in front of an audience, we can help you.
