Chance to join cer­e­mony cast

Benalla Ensign - - Letters To The Editor -

Missed out on tick­ets to the open­ing cer­e­mony of next year’s Gold Coast Com­mon­wealth Games?

Don’t de­spair — you could find your­self part of the show rather than just watch­ing it.

Games or­gan­is­ers are on the hunt for mem­bers of the pub­lic to join the vol­un­teer cast for the open­ing and clos­ing cer­e­monies.

The Gold Coast 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games Cor­po­ra­tion ( GOLDOC) this week an­nounced it is seek­ing up to 4000 vol­un­teers from the com­mu­nity to per­form along­side pro­fes­sional artists.

It may re­quire dress­ing up or over­com­ing the stage fright of per­form­ing in front of a packed sta­dium, but GOLDOC chair­man Peter Beat­tie said the op­por­tu­nity was a once in a life­time chance.

‘‘To per­form in such a high pro­file event is some­thing they will re­mem­ber for­ever,’’ Mr Beat­tie said.

With tick­ets to the open­ing cer­e­mony al­ready sold out, earn­ing a spot on the per­for­mance cast is one of the few re­main­ing ways for the pub­lic to get themselves in­side Car­rara Sta­dium on April 4.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are open now for as­pir­ing cast mem­bers.

En­tries close on Sun­day, Septem­ber 3, with an au­di­tion process to fol­low in Oc­to­ber.

On­line ap­pli­ca­tion forms are avail­able from the Gold Coast 2018 Com­mon­wealth Games web­site.
