Muscat: This is the perfect opportunity for citizens and residents interested in acting, as the Royal Opera House Muscat (ROHM) is looking to cast “extras” for one of its productions in September 2018.

The team requires six men and six women, and two boys and girls to take part in the new season’s opening production of “Gala Zarzuela”.

“We require six men between 19 and 39 years old with a height between 175 and 188 cm. We need six women between 18 and 33 years old and height from 169 to 179 cm. We are looking for two boys and girls between 5 and 10 years,” said a ROHM official.

“Applicants for the adult roles will need to be Omani, based locally and be able to provide a copy of an ID card and also have a local bank account,” the official added.

According to the ROHM team, only people who can commit to attend all the scheduled sessions should apply for this production, as they need the new recruits to be available for all scheduled costume fittings, rehearsals and performances.

“If you are not available for all scheduled fittings, rehearsals and performances, you cannot be considered,” said the team.

“The ‘extras’ will be required for rehearsal and costume fitting on August 27 from 5.15 to 10pm, and just for rehearsals from August 28 to September 3 from 5.15 to 9.30pm. The rehearsal on September 4 will be split into two shifts: 1.45 to 5pm and 6 to 10pm.

“Moreover, performance two on September 6 and 8 will start at 7pm but will require the extras to be there at 5.30pm,” according to the schedule released by ROHM, which is subject to change. Interested people should apply soon as applications close on August 4.

“If you would like to take part in this production please send ROHM one full length photograph of yourself, one headshot photograph plus a short cell-phone video to introduce yourself (full length shot, not head shot) to [email protected] with a covering e-mail telling us a little about yourself (including your name, age, height, clothing size, shoe size and telephone number), your previous acting/dance experience and why you would like to be involved. Successful applicants will be informed by e-mail if they have been selected and/or if an audition will be required,” the statement read.
