Walt Disney World sends out casting call for new “Citizens of Hollywood”

An interesting post has shown up on the Disney auditions website. Walt Disney World is currently seeking both male and female comedic and interactive actors for a role in the Citizens of Hollywood.  This comes after Disney cut back ten positions in these roles earlier this year. It is unknown if those who lost their jobs due to the cutbacks in April were ever offered their old positions back before Disney sent out this new casting call. لعب البوكر على الانترنت  It was presumed that these cuts were due to cost-cutting measures taken to balance out the overspending at Shanghai Disney. قانون لعبة البوكر Many other cuts were made around the Resort as well.

For those who aren’t familiar with this group, the Citizens of Hollywood is a group of actors known as “streetmosphere” characters at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The group started performing May 1st, 1989, which was opening day of Disney’s Hollywood Studios (then Disney-MGM Studios) and have performed every day since the opening. These characters come out a few times a day and set up a scene on one of the streets in the theme park, allowing them to interact with guests in over the top silly performances on Hollywood Boulevard, Sunset Boulevard, and the entrance to Echo Lake.

The female casting call reads (the male call is identical):

Disney Parks Talent Casting is seeking female comedic, interactive actors for full time and substitute positions for a variety of roles and shows performed live at the Walt Disney World®Resort near Orlando, FL.

Performers employed by the Walt Disney World Resort are covered under the terms and conditions of a collective bargaining agreement with Actors’ Equity Association.

Seeking the following roles:

Citizens of Hollywood – Funny, physical, interactive actors with strong supported voices to play various roles outside and bring to life the Golden Era of Hollywood, in addition to a modern day film crew to complete the picture of hilarity along the streets of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

It is unclear why Disney has decided to recast these positions. It is speculated that guests may have complained about the lack of entertainment in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, which has closed multiple attractions in order to make room for the upcoming Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land. مواقع الرهان على المباريات
