Pageant of the Masters seeks volunteers
The Pageant of the Masters is looking for men, women and children to volunteer for next summer's show, "Only Make Believe." People of all sizes and ages are needed to be cast members in the world's most famous presentation of tableaux vivants or "living pictures."
Casting calls will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday; 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday; and 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Irvine Bowl Park, 650 Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach. Prospective volunteers will be measured and photographed, enjoy refreshments and meet the behind-the-scenes Pageant staff. No theater experience is necessary. The only requirement is the ability to stand still and have fun.
"It takes more than 500 volunteers, both onstage and behind-the-scenes, to put on the Pageant," director Diane Challis Davy said. "We wouldn't have a show without our volunteers."
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.
