Glasgow 2014 opens Ceremonies cast search

Glasgow 2014
In exactly six months the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will officially launch the start of Glasgow and Scotland’s biggest-ever festival of sport and culture.

Glasgow 2014 wants up to 3,000 genuine and enthusiastic people to be at the heart of the Games and today (Thursday, 23 January) begins its search to find the stars of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. 

A mass cast recruitment is now on to find the talented individuals who will be the life and soul of the party as Glasgow and Scotland invites in the world with the warmest of welcomes.

Around 3,000 voluntary cast members are required for the Ceremonies, to be held at Celtic Park and Hampden Stadium, which will be seen by live audiences of more than 40,000 people and a potential global television audience of more than one billion.

Whilst the content of the Ceremonies is being kept under wraps for now, spectators are being promised two evenings of delight and surprise which proudly and playfully reflect the culture of Glasgow and Scotland in a warm, welcoming way.

Applications to be part of the cast, which covers both Ceremonies and some elements which will be pre-recorded, opened this morning and will be accepted until 14 February with auditions due to take place in March. 

You could be part of Glasgow 2014’s big moments on a global stage if you are:

  • Aged 18 or over by 1 March 2014
  • Available to attend auditions in Glasgow
  • Available to rehearse and attend the performance

All mass cast places are voluntary and no previous experience is required.  Organisers are looking for enthusiastic individuals who are willing to represent Glasgow and Scotland and contribute their passion, talent, energy and positive spirit to the Ceremonies.
