So, YOU wanna be a pirate, matey??
You may or may not recall that a few months ago, on the MouseTunes podcast, I mentioned seeing a man dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow being escorted through the old Animation building, where we were having lunch with some Imagineers. I speculated that there would be walk-around "face" characters in the "new" Caribbean Plaza. I love Pirates, as well as POTC, so I'm happy to show you this:
Equity Comedic Actors with Improv Skills
Open Call Comedic Actors with Improv Skills
Walt Disney Entertainment is seeking full-time, part-time and substitute actors to portray the roles of Captain Jack Sparrow and Mack, his crew member, for a temporary new atmosphere show experience at the MAGIC KINGDOM Park.
Through interactive, high-spirited demonstrations and audience participation, exposure to a pirate's life is given by Captain Jack Sparrow. Captain Jack is assisted by his faithful crew member, Mack, who manages to humorously epitomize the "wong way" of every "how-to" moment. From "Swashbuckling for Beginners" to "Run Away - FAST!", Captain Jack and Mack share the secrets of the Pirate brotherhood in a hands-on, fun-filled fashion.

If only I were in Florida... This job has mine and Summer's names all over it.
Hmmm.....Summer is out of work, already has the costume and makes a mighty handsome Jack Sparrow if I do say so myself! And....isn't this the weekend she's heading back down to WDW???? Sounds like fate to me!!!
Summer, THIS IS THE JOB FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!! I have seen the costume!!! Run, don't walk, to this audition!!
I am in need of some Disney magic!!
Ok, I'm 15 years old and have red hair.......I'M PERFECT FOR THE ROLE!!
I want to audition!
Remember, Dreams Come True!
Oh my gosh! I'm going to be down there then! Will they let me dress up in costume to audition do you think? I can hear the phone call now:
"Shaun (DH), Hi there. Yes, I know I was supposed to be home already, but as it turns out, I've found a job as well... Capt. Jack! Who'd thunkit?"
"What ARRRRGH you doing?"
"What are you
"No, What ARRRRGH
"I'll try anything once or twice, that's the kind of mouse I am"
Cap'n Jack lives again!
That's SO awesome. If only I was old enough to fit the part! lol. It would be even BETTER if they actually had Johnny Depp as the face character! lol.
I'm a baby Knight! UCF '13
I hope that they have someone cast and working the park by May 23rd!! I would love to see those guys in person! It would make up for the ride being closed while I am down there!

...Mack? Por que?
I wonder if they need an Elizabeth...

This looks like the pirate version of the Jedi Training Academy. Any idea how long it will be there?
I read somewhere that it's scheduled to start at the reopening of PotC and go through the end of August. Hopefully they will prolong it or even test to make it part of normal everyday activities like they are trying out with Jedi Training.
