When hiring casting and audition venues, remember to choose a space that reflects your needs. When casting the next big thing, you’ll probably need to accommodate hundreds of people, but if you’re familiar with your market and are only expecting a few dozen auditioners, then a local music room, practice space or casting suite might be ideal. If you don’t hire a traditional auditorium with a separate backstage area, make sure to allocate a space where performers will wait their turn, as well as a private area with tables and chairs, where you and your associates can confer.
Another thing to consider is the type of people or acts you expect to attend your casting. This will matter a great deal for the type of casting and audition venues you're planning to hire! For solo acting auditions, a small casting room and a designated waiting area will be more than enough, but for bold artistic performances with large crews or bands, a big stage is what you’re after. Spacious creative spaces and warehouses can also work pretty well. If you’re casting for a photo shoot model, something like a photo or recording studio would be a good fit for your audition.
Are you a band looking for a new member? Maybe you’re working on your own movie and trying to find capable actors? Either way, we got you covered! Take a look at our list of things you need to remember before holding your first audition:

Depending on the type of talent you’re after, you will have different things to prepare. If you’re a director looking for undiscovered actors, you have to share the script with them. Maybe you can provide them with some props as well? If you’re looking for musicians, basic sound equipment, and possibly instruments should be in place. Some sort of recording equipment would help you with the process of choosing the perfect candidate after the audition day.

Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
