Acting Opportunity

My name is Jessica and I am currently a student at the University of Denver and I work at the university's Humanitarian Assistance Program. The program will have a simulation on campus during Memorial Day weekend and we are looking for people who might be interested in playing various roles of people in crisis situations (NGO representatives, internationally displaced persons, BBC reporters, etc...). This is on a volunteer basis so no acting background is required, just an interest in theater. If you or anyone in your group is interested, please feel free to forward this email to them. I am including the original email that details the simulation a bit more and the link to the survey if you are interested. You can email me back at the program's address at [masked] or me directly at [masked]. -- An International Humanitarian Crisis Simulation exercise is taking place on Memorial Day weekend May 23rd–26th 2014, sponsored by the Joseph Korbel School of International Studies Humanitarian Certificate Program. We are looking for volunteer actors to play parts like internationally displaced persons (IDPs), members of a national Red Cross/Red Crescent agency, government officials, international funders, etc. Specifically, actors are needed for Sunday morning (May 25th), Sunday afternoon (May 25th), and Monday morning (May 26th). Of course, actors can choose which time slots work best for them. In addition, a brief training for actors will take place sometime on Saturday (May 24th) – depending on availability. Actors will: • Receive lunch, drinks, and/or snacks during the simulation. • Receive parking passes for the day(s) they attend the simulation. • Be assigned one or more actor roles, depending on actor availability. • Receive a one-page description of each role that is assigned – prior to Memorial Day weekend. No memorization will be necessary. • Receive a general synopsis of the simulation context, maps on how to get to the simulation and where to park, etc – prior to Memorial Day weekend. If you are interested in volunteer acting in this simulation, please go to the following link to fill out a brief survey: http://svy.mk/1gyjkyO Sincerely, Jessica Estrada, Humanitarian Certificate Program Assistant Joseph Korbel School of International Studies Humanitarian Certificate Program

      We only have so many roles available and we just reached our max number of actors. So we're full for this year, but I can keep you on the list for next year's simulation if you'd like.

    If anyone wants to go to this on Memorial Day weekend, there is a link towards the bottom to fill out a survey on availability, acting experience, dietary restrictions for the food that will be provided, contact info, etc. I hope to see you there and will be in contact with anyone who wants to fill out the survey.
