This is not a hunt for a super-animal, like Wonder Dog. It is for people to be supernumeraries, nonsinging members of the cast, who will portray animals on stage. Mozart's opera The Magic Flute is full of all kinds of fantastical characters, including a pair of bird people who are leading roles. This particular production uses forest animals as a part of the show and the opera is in need of some extra "extras.
There are two types of people they are looking for:
- Male/Female 5'-5" or shorter, preferring shorter legs and longer waists, physically fit and not claustrophobic
- Female 5'-7" or shorter, 32" bust size with some dance background, physically fit and not claustrophobic
The first rehearsal will be Friday, March 30, 7:30-10:30 p.m. at the rehearsal production center in Fair Park.
You won't get rich, but you will be paid for your time. The "super" animals will be paid $10 per rehearsal and $35 per performance, plus you will receive 2 dress rehearsal passes to give to family and friends.
Also, this is the opera that will be broadcast so you will have the added perk of appearing on the humongous HD screen at Cowboys Stadium (but as a beast).
Anyone who may be interested in joining the cast should contact Tai C. Renfrow at 214-443-1037 or by email at email@example.com.
Wonder what the "not claustrophobic" means?
