Santa Ana’s Discovery Science Center is looking for actors to portray Elmo, the Sesame Street character, in their upcoming “Sesame Street Presents: The Body,” exhibit, which starts on January 29, 2011, through May 1.
No puppet experience is necessary, actors will be trained by the exhibit personnel on how to properly portray the character.
The Elmo character will be making appearances daily and the actors will have the opportunity to interact with children of all ages.
Actors are required to sign on for a specified contract, but it does not have to be for the entire length of the exhibit. The term is negotiable.
The Elmo actors may be male or female, 18-49, any ethnicity, 5’2″ or shorter. They must be people friendly and not claustrophobic, very outgoing and not afraid to approach guests in character.
Note: Due to the nature of working with children, you are required to complete a fingerprint/background investigation prior to employment. The livescan is no cost to you and will only take a short amount of time to complete.
Email your picture and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Actors will be paid for their work.
