Organizers of the annual Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach are looking for men, women and children of all ages, shapes and sizes to bring to life the world’s most famous pieces of art.

The nonprofit Festival of Arts is calling on volunteers for its annual living art show, supporting arts in Orange County. Next year’s show, titled The Art Detective, will reveal the discoveries of lost treasures, where passionate crimes were covered and uncovered and how art’s creative riddles were undone with a gallery of living art providing the clues.

A casting call will be held at the Irvine Bowl Park, 650 Laguna Canyon Road in Laguna Beach, Saturday, January 4, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Sunday, January 5, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.; and Thursday, January 9, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Prospective volunteers will be measured, photographed and given the chance to meet behind-the-scenes staff. Volunteers are also needed for the wardrobe, make up and headdress departments, among other positions. No theater experience is necessary.  Next summer’s performances will be staged nightly at 8:30 p.m. from Wednesday, July 9 through Saturday, August 30. Call 949.494.3663 for more information.
