Producers of the Pageant of the Masters’ 2015 show, “The Pursuit of Happiness,” are looking for men, women and children to volunteer in the summer production.
People of all sizes and ages are needed to be cast members in the tableaux vivants and a casting call will be held Jan. 9-11 at the Irvine Bowl Park, 650 Laguna Canyon Rd. Prospective volunteers will be measured and photographed, enjoy refreshments and meet the behind-the-scenes pageant staff from 7 – 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 9 and 10 and from 2 – 5 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 11.
No theater experience is necessary. The only requirement is the ability to stand still and have fun.
“Over 500 volunteers, both onstage and behind-the-scenes, are needed to put on the show,” said Pageant director Diane Challis Davy.
Pageant volunteers are also needed for positions in the wardrobe, make up, and headdress departments as well as cast area coordinators and refreshment servers, among other positions. Students can earn credit towards community service requirements.Firebrand Media LLC wants comments that advance the discussion, and we need your help to accomplish this mission.
