SeaWorld mimes to return for Christmas sea lion show

SeaWorld mimes to return for Christmas sea lion show mimes

SeaWorld Orlando’s mime act will return for the Christmas “Clyde and Seamore’s Countdown to Christmas” show. The three mime performers were let go in 2014 as part of a company-wide layoff. Earlier this year, park president Donnie Mills said he was looking for a way to bring the mimes back in some capacity.

Lynn Frey, one of the original three mimes, will be returning for the show; Jim Hackworth and Tom Munson will not. An open audition was held for those roles.

The three performers had worked for SeaWorld for over 20 years as part of the popular pre-show for the Clyde and Seamore sea lion show.
