POET Theatricals Auditions
Poet Theatricals is currently seeking talent for immediate and ongoing casting. We are looking for dancers, vocalists, adage duos, specialty acts, and physical comedians. Visit our website at poettheatricals.com to find information on our live auditions as well as instructions for sending a video submission. Contact Caitlin Dubsky in our casting department at casting@poet.cc with inquiries.

Male and Female Vocalist
Versatility, excellent vocal technique, and a thrill for live performance are the qualities we’re looking for when it comes to our male and female vocalists. Singers must be able to make the transition of taking the audience on a journey through the songs that inspired success on Broadway to the riveting pop sounds heard on the radio worldwide to a Cirque-style ethnic fusion rich in color and earthy in tone. Female altos must have a strong belt to at least a D (D5) and sopranos must have a top C (C6). Males must have a strong falsetto, ability to riff, and must comfortably sing to at least an A flat (A?4).
Although we do not require our vocalists to have dance experience, there needs to be a level of comfort with basic stage movement. Additionally, some of our vocalists are offered the opportunity to be suspended in the air in our productions. If you are cast in one of these particular positions, you must be willing and able to be suspended up to 25 feet. If you are unable or unwilling to be suspended we do have other opportunities that do not require aerial work

Male and Female Dancers
If you are a versatile, classically trained dancer who exhibits strong technique in ballet, jazz, and other styles of dance, we are looking for you. Dancers must possess stage presence, spatial orientation, flexibility, upper and lower body strength, and improvisational skills. In addition to learning dance choreography, some contracted dancers will have the opportunity to be trained by our in-house aerial trainers at heights up to 25 feet to perform various aerial choreography. Aerial experience is a plus, though not required.

Specialty Acts and Adage Duos
Dynamic specialty acts that execute a high level of performance with carefully crafted movements of ingenuity and wonder is what we’d like to see. Specialty Acts must have a strong stage presence and be prepared with a physical act that has a distinct ability to amaze an audience. Adage duos are required to have a duo flying silks act, a statue act, and several dance adages in various styles.
