Calling Job Seekers and Performers!

The Great Escape Seeks Employees and Entertainers for 2008 Season

Theme park to hire up to 1,500 seasonal employees at annual job fair & casting call

The Great Escape’s 2008 season opening is just around the corner and the theme park has announced its annual job fair and casting call to hire up to 1,500 seasonal employees.

Calling all Entertainers: Annual Auditions
Live your dream of being an actor, singer or JUSTICE LEAGUE Super Hero! The Great Escape is expanding its entertainment offerings this year with new shows and character entertainment, and is looking to cast over 100 performers including super heroes, singers, dancers, show hosts, costume characters and more! The Great Escape offers young performers a chance to gain practical experience in a fun environment. The theme park actively recruits music, theatre and drama students, as well as accomplished performers.
The Great Escape’s annual auditions will be held on Saturday, March 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at The Great Escape’s Bavarian Palace on Round Pond Road in Queensbury.
The theme park’s entertainment department is especially interested in recruiting actors who can fill the shoes of the beloved Wiggles Characters – including Captain Feathersword, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus and Wags the Dog – as they will make their new home at the Wiggles World themed children’s area this year.
The theme park is also seeking actors to join the elite league of DC Comics JUSTICE LEAGUE Super Heroes and performers interested in filling the roles of the popular LOONEY TUNES pals.
New in 2008, The Great Escape will introduce Retro Rock, an entertaining tribute to rock and roll hits from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. The theme park is actively seeking singers and dancers for this new production, which debuts at the park’s Jolly Tree Theater in May.
For more information about the theme park’s audition process, please contact The Great Escape’s Entertainment Department at 518-792-3500 ext. 3337 or e-mail bgalarneau@sftp.com.
