Rose Festival Clown Auditions
The Rose Festival's award-winning Amtrak Cascades Character Clown Corps is accepting applications for the 2010 season -- and the deadline for applications is almost here!
Individuals 14-years or older are encouraged to release their 'silly side' and join one of the Rose Festival's most prestigious institutions of higher education. Participants attend clown school to train and perform with a European-style clown professional, receive a makeup kit and costume and learn to develop their very own clown character.
Twenty participants will be selected through an audition process consisting of a short comedy bit and an interview. No previous experience is required. Aspiring clowns can sign up for the Character Clown Corps by downloading an application form at their website (click here) Applications are due Monday, March 1, 2010.
