actors, performers, tumblers etc. to be classic DC comics heroes
Actors and Performers Wanted!
Taylor Maid is looking for character performers to be in the Orem Summerfest Parade on June 13. Last year we did this parade and it was by far my favorite event of the year and many of the performers said the same. Our entry was based on Avengers Infinity War/Endgame and the MCU in general. It was a blast!
This year we want to do a tribute to DC characters since Wonder Woman 1984 and Justice League Dark: Apokolips War will be coming out right before. We are looking for actors, performers, tumblers etc. to be classic DC comics heroes and villains. We will be performing a choreographed (not dancing, just organized) march/show to several classic DC character themes, as we walk the parade route.
The parade is the evening of June 13, but we will need you pretty much that whole afternoon to get ready and do a final rehearsal, take pictures and carpool up to the parade route. We will also have two other MANDATORY rehearsals: one on the morning of Saturday, June 6, and one in the evening on Thursday June 11. Each will last about 2 hours. These are necessary to make our entry look as professional, polished and cool as possible.
If you are a cosplayer or already have a costume for a certain character, I would love to see it! Your costume might be better than ours. However, we will make the ultimate casting decision, so just because you usually play a certain character, we may feel you fit better as another character that we need, and we hope you still will be interested in participating. Also we do have costumes for most of the characters, but there are a few characters we would love to have, but don’t have a costume for, so if you cosplay as that character, we would love to know. We want to feature our costumes, but we also want to feature our clients, which includes cosplayers and actors.
We could also use a few makeup artists to help us out, it would also be volunteer, but you are welcome to use the store kit so you wouldn’t be spending money on your own supplies, just donating time. And if you are also a performer and fit a character we need, we may be able to use you in the parade itself (several of our makeup artists were also characters last year).
Characters we have costumes for: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Shazam, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Zatanna, John Constantine, Supergirl, Batgirl, Nightwing, Robin, Mera, Joker, Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Two Face, Penguin, Riddler, Mr. Freeze, Scarecrow, Bane, Lex Luthor, Cheetah.
Characters we would love to have, but don’t have costumes for: Cyborg, Vixen, Huntress, Darkseid, any teen titans, any suicide squad, any legion of doom, any justice league dark, honestly I’m open to most DC characters really.
This is a really fun event and an incredible opportunity and I hope you will consider being a part of it. Please send your height, costume size, a photo/headshot and any photos of characters you cosplay or have costumes for. Hope to hear from you soon!
