  • Well your code doesn’t do anything right not to actually fetch the info. 🙂

    You need to run it through a custom wp_query AND add the appropriate posts_where filter function as described in the documentation

    Take a look at example 4 here:

    So your code needs to be more like:

    //Get the volunteer posts ID
    $post_id = get_the_ID();
    //Fetching all shows the volunteer was actor in
    $args = array(
    	'numberposts'	=> -1,
    	'post_type'		=> 'show',
    	'meta_query'	=> array(
    			'key'		=> 'cast_%_actor',
    			'compare'	=> '=',
    			'value'		=> $post_id,
    $show_actor_query = new WP_Query($args);
    <?php if( $show_actor_query->have_posts() ): ?>
    	<?php while( $show_actor_query->have_posts() ): $show_actor_query->the_post(); ?>
    		<h1><?php the_title(); ?></h1>
    	<?php endwhile; wp_reset_postdata(); ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    I can’t really write all the code for you because it’d be a bit over the top and I strongly believe in learning by doing 🙂 But I’ll be happy to guide you in what you need to do.
