SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Residents looking to be part of a south Orange County tradition will get their opportunity in the coming weeks.
Anyone capable of standing still for 90 seconds may be a part of Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach. In preparation of the 2015 show, “The Pursuit of Happiness,” the pageant is looking for men, women and children to volunteer. People of all sizes and ages are needed to be cast members in the world’s most famous presentation of tableaux vivants (living pictures).
The casting call will be held at the Irvine Bowl Park (650 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach) during the following times: Friday, Jan. 9 and Saturday, Jan. 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 11 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The summer 2015 performances of the Pageant of the Masters will run nightly at 8:30 p.m. from July 8 to Aug. 31, 2015. Call 949.494.3663 for additional information.
Casting call is a fun experience for all involved. Prospective volunteers will be 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. By volunteering for the pageant, students can earn credit towards community service requirements.
