Games Time, a spectacular outdoor stage show combining music, video, fireworks and professional dancers, will be performed in Loughborough as part of The Spark Children's Arts Festival in June 2012
The show, which is inspired by the Olympic and Paralympic Games, gives volunteers the chance to work with professional dancers and choreographers, costume makers and set designers as well as seeing how a large outdoor show is put together.
Games Time centres around a battle between four teams of coloured counters on a large games board. Set against a backdrop of giant video projections and music, Games Time features people from the local community competing as part of a giant performance involving kings, queens, executioners and mythical creatures, such as dragons and minotaurs.
The event brings together world class artistic and production partners and gives people in the East Midlands a once in a lifetime chance to be part of celebrations around the Olympic Games.
Games Time has been funded by Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to help build a lasting cultural and sporting legacy from the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games across the UK.
Derby-based Déda Producing, in partnership with Charnwood Borough Council, Leicestershire County Council, Charnwood Arts, Loughborough University, and The Spark Festival, is looking to recruit volunteers to be part of the cast for Games Time.
The producers are looking for individuals and groups, aged 13 and over, from in and around Loughborough, Leicester and Leicestershire. Experience in dancing or performing isn't necessary but a commitment to the rehearsal schedule is a requirement.
You can now register your interest in being a part of this amazing performance in Loughborough (June 2012) or Northampton (July 2012). For further information please visit www.gamestime.org.uk/get-involved.
The closing date for expressions of interest is the 20th February.
