Poetry Alive! Holding Auditions


Poetry Alive! conducts open auditions for professional actors from February to April. Actors travel in pairs throughout the US presenting 4 different poetry shows for school audiences (grades K-12, some College, some Adult). We also conduct student and teacher workshops which focus on using performance to study poetry. Rehearsals begin in late August or early September, depending on the booking schedule. The tour generally runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day with time off at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Requirements: a valid driver's license and good driving record; a college degree (any major). Professional theater experience is preferred with good improvisational skills; quick memorization skill; ability to work with kids; ability to collaborate. Reliability is a must. Travel includes weekends. Experience in education is helpful but not required. *Due to our reliance on rental cars, all actors must be at least 25 years of age.*

Salaries range from $325.00-375.00 per week plus bonuses. All travel expenses (except food and laundry) are provided, including weekends. Other opportunities to earn extra pay also available.

Must travel to Asheville, NC for audition unless otherwise arranged. Poetry Alive! also attends in several professional theater auditions around the country.
