Ever wonder what it would be like to step into a famous piece of art? If you can stand still for 90 seconds, you could experience just that by volunteering for the renowned Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach, “where art comes to life!” 

The Pageant is looking for men, women, and children to volunteer to appear in the summer 2023 show, Art Colony: In the Company of Artists. People of all sizes and ages are needed to be cast members in the world's most famous presentation of tableaux vivants. 
 
Casting call is being held at the Irvine Bowl (backstage) during the following times:

  • Friday, January 6 from 7 – 9pm
  • Saturday, January 7 from 7 - 9pm
  • Sunday, January 8 from 2 - 5pm

Next summer’s performances of the Pageant of the Masters will run nightly at 8:30pm from July 7 to September 1, 2023. 

At the casting call, prospective volunteers are measured and photographed, enjoy refreshments and meet the behind-the-scenes Pageant staff. No theater experience is necessary.  The only requirement is the ability to stand still and have fun.

Pageant volunteers are also needed for positions in the wardrobe, make up, and headdress departments, as well as cast area coordinators and refreshment servers, among other positions.

It is common to have several generations of the same family volunteering for different aspects of the show. Additionally, by volunteering for the Pageant, students can earn credit towards community service requirements.
