Auditions are held at least twice a year in New York City. We post our audition calls on Playbill.com and Backstage.com. We hold auditions in September and December each season. Depending upon what role you are eligible for, you may be asked to sing. Please be prepared with two songs that utilize both your belt and legit voices. In addition, you will be given sides to look over briefly before your reading audition. You may be asked to return at the end of the week for a callback audition. We are only able to cast from auditions, so please do not mail us your headshots and resumes. No phone calls please. Be prepared to travel because ArtsPower is a touring theatre. Casts consist of four actors and one stage manager, and all travel in a large maxi-van with the set, sound system and costumes. ArtsPower tours are a combination of “local” and “out-of-town” bookings.
Non-Equity Stage Managers
ArtsPower, a professional touring Theatre for Young Audiences company, is seeking resumes from stage managers. ArtsPower rehearses in Manhattan. All tours travel locally and nationally.

Laptop computer and touring experience is a plus. Each tour consists of one stage manager and four actors. Fall tours generally begin rehearsal in September and tour through December.
