Pageant of the Masters Casting Call Dates Set

You oughta be in pictures ... or have the strength to stand still for a couple few minutes, at least ...

Press release from the Pageant of the Masters:

“Lights! Camera! Inaction!”

Excitement is already building for the 2013 Pageant of the Masters as it celebrates the 80th birthday of living pictures. In preparation of next summer's show, The Big Picture, the Pageant is looking for men, women and children to volunteer. People of all sizes and ages are needed to be cast members in the world's most famous presentation of tableaux vivants.
Casting call will be held at the Irvine Bowl Park (650 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach) during the following times:

  • Saturday, Jan. 5 from 7-9 p.m.
  • Sunday, Jan. 6 from 2-5 p.m.
  • Thursday, Jan. 10 from 7-9 p.m.

Next summer’s performances of the Pageant of the Masters will run nightly at 8:30 p.m. from July 7 to Aug. 31. Please call (949) 494-3663 for additional information.

Casting call is a fun experience for all involved.  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 over 500 volunteers, both onstage and behind-the-scenes, to put on the pageant," Pageant director Diane Challis Davy said. "We wouldn't have a show without our volunteers!  They have so much fun backstage, volunteers return year after year to participate.”

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.
Volunteering for the pageant is a great way to spend your summer and it is common to have several generations of the same family volunteering for different aspects of the show.  By volunteering, students can earn credit towards community service requirements.
The 2013 Pageant of the Masters, The Big Picture, will be staged July 7 through Aug. 31. Ticket prices range from $15 to $220. Tickets are on sale now by calling 1-800-487-3378 or online at www.PageantTickets.com.  The Festival of Arts is a nonprofit organization that produces The Festival of Arts – California’s Premier Fine Art Show and the Pageant of the Masters.  Proceeds support the arts in Orange County.
