Performers needed for Paralympic Games Ceremonies


The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has begun its search to find performers for the London 2012 Paralympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies.


With auditions for the Olympic Games ceremonies in full swing, 5000 volunteers are now being sought to fill roles as dancers, actors, percussionists, and general all-round performers at the Paralympic Ceremonies on 29 August and 9 September.

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity lies in store for successful applicants, who will perform in front of worldwide broadcast audience in one of the largest events ever staged in the UK.

‘As with the Olympic Ceremonies we’re looking for both disabled and non-disabled applicants and previous performance experience is not required,’ said Jenny Sealey, Co-Artistic Director of the Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony. ‘We’re really looking for enthusiasm and commitment. Anyone with 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 should get onto the London 2012 website now and sign up.’
