Auditions & Casting Calls
ACTING MIDWEST website is recruiting content providers (Authors) to post their auditions & casting calls on the website.
After a recent CRASH of the software database that we use, Acting Midwest is starting over from scratch. Originally formed in April 2008, it was a very popular site for screen and stage actors looking for acting jobs. Bob Cooke would search the web throughout a six state area from Kentucky to Michigan & Wisconsin and repost auditions and casting calls that he found.
In February 2013, health issues made it impossible to spend the long hours it took to keep the site current. The decision was made to switch to having everyone post their own articles.
Acting Midwest is a totally free site. We don't charge production companies to post calls. We don't charge actors to use the site. We don't sell our mailing list or send spam. We don't even accept donations. We DO accept auditions and casting calls for publication.
