What Are Casting Auditions?
Casting Auditions are actually quite different from an audition. The main purpose of a casting audition is to get the attention of a casting director and to be recalled for a future guest role, co-star role or lead role.

A casting call, on the other hand is an announcement of an open audition opportunity that is placed in online casting directories such as Backstage.com and TalentWorks.com where you can find notices for thousands of auditions each month by signing up to be notified of new jobs directly to your email inbox.
Both are great ways to get noticed by casting directors and producers so that you can build your acting resume and get cast in the next production!
