happenings, people, places, experiences and emotions.
The Pageant of the Masters is looking for volunteers for next
summer's show. They need men, women and children of all sizes and
ages to be cast members, positions in wardrobe, makeup, headdress and
more. No theater experience is necessary. The only requirement is the
ability to stand still for a few minutes and enjoy the experience.
Casting is tomorrow night from 7 to 9 p.m., Sunday from 2 to 5
p.m. and Thursday, Jan. 9, from 7 to 9 p.m.
Volunteers will be measured, photographed, have fun, partake in
refreshments and meet the behind-the-scenes staff.
Many volunteers have been with the Pageant for 10, 15 or 20 years,
and a lot of people volunteer with family and friends. The Pageant is
staged nightly from July 9 through Aug. 31.
Casting is held backstage at the Irvine Bowl on the Festival
grounds at 650 Laguna Canyon Drive. For information, call 494-3663.
