Dear Advocate group member
As 2012 has now arrived, we thought it would be good to update you on our search for our Ceremonies Volunteer Performers.
We had a fantastic series of Auditions in November with over 10,000 auditionees who were brilliant and fantastically representative of London and the UK, however we are still looking for some more auditionees to complete our casting.
We especially need more men – particularly if you have rhythm! This means those of you or your friends who can dance but also drum, or do any sport, job, or hobby that involves keeping to time.
Previous performance experience is not required; Ceremonies Volunteer Performers simply need lots of enthusiasm, personality, a positive attitude, huge amounts of energy and a willingness to perform in front of a stadium audience and to millions of people around the world.
However, to deliver Ceremonies of this scale to a world audience a substantial commitment is required. You must be able to participate in
An audition that will take place in February 2012;
Up to two or three rehearsal sessions each week of up to four hours per session from April 2012, and a number of all day rehearsals in the three weeks leading up to each Ceremony.
The current application period is open until January 9th; you can register now on the London 2012 website. I would be grateful if you could circulate this opportunity within your own networks.
