A request from London2012Ceremonies:
As you may have heard Artistic Directors Danny Boyle and Kim Gavin are searching for 10,000 volunteer performers to fill roles as dancers, actors, percussionists and general all-round performers in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies respectively.
We are really looking for talented people with passion and timing to be part of a world class event. It would be amazing to hear from those with the ability to RIDE A BICYCLE. All cyclists would need to be 18 years or older on 1 March 2012. 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. It would be great for us to find talented cyclists who would like to be part of this amazing opportunity.
All cast volunteers will need to be available for up to two auditions in November and December 2011 and up to three rehearsals a week from March 2012 and a few all day rehearsals running up to the Ceremonies. These will all be based in East London.
If you know of any cyclists who would like to apply as individuals please ask them to register their interest by completing the online application form www.london2012.com/ceremoniescasting and by putting the initial (C) for Cyclist at the end of the family name field on the online form. Full Casting details are available on the web site. You can contact me directly for group interest, i.e. over 15 people.
Best of luck and we hope to see some of your members and associates at the auditions.
