Casting Process

Starlightz Casting is an established agency operating since 2002, we currently offer castings for all ages in Cape Town. After you have signed a two year contract with us, we will use your photos as a reference for our clients. We will distribute them to these clients upon request, and include them in our online Casting Directory. This directory is viewed mainly by Casting Directors, Production Companies and Advertising Agencies. It should be stressed that no agency can guarantee work for anyone on their books. Our policy, however, is to represent and promote you in the best ways possible.

Please note that Starlightz does not charge any annual registration fee to be with the agency.

We receive a brief from the client for a specific job, together with audition and venue details. We submit your photos, or selection of photos of those who meet the criteria. Upon confirmation from the client, we then contact you with this information and confirm your attendance. We will tell you of any particular dress code that has been stipulated, which product the casting is for and the exact times and dates for when you will be required for the shoot, should you be successful. All performers must keep to the arranged casting times. After the casting, you need to do nothing else.

The client will never call you directly, they will call the agency to book you for a job. The selection for any part is not made by Starlightz, it’s always made by the client and their decision is seldom made on the day of the casting. It can take several days before final selections are made. Our duty as an agency is to provide suitable people who fit the specifications given to us by the client.


Currently Only people living in Cape Town can join
