A new entertainment opportunity has been announced for the Magic Kingdom theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort. Under the title of ‘variety acts,’ the position is specifically looking for ‘fun and engaging circus-style variety acts, preferably those with levels and height, as well as audience participation.’ In addition, ‘these acts must be self contained, allow for quick set-up and strike, not use any permanent rigging, and be suitable for outdoor venues. They must also be suitable for family audiences.’ Solo clown acts are explicitly not being considered at this time.
Although the entry doesn’t explicitly say where the acts will perform, presumably the acts will be part of the ‘streetmosphere’ at the Storybook Circus section of the New Fantasyland expansion, which is currently open and operating, though the official New Fantasyland launch date will be December 6, 2012. Auditions are by appointment only and must be requested via phone at 407-397-3285.
Walt Disney World also recently announced it was seeking talent with physical comedy and improv skills for two new, ‘highly interactive, comedic and unique atmospheric experiences’ that ‘will bring fun and fantasy to each Guest’ for the Magic Kingdom.
