Dale W. sent in this bit of news he found at Mousplanet.com regarding an upcoming open audition for Jedi at Disney in Southern California. Read on for more details.
"In early September the Club Buzz Stage shuts down for about a month for repairs to the lift mechanism and to remove all of the remaining Buzz Lightyear stage decorations. When it comes back it will once again officially be the Tomorrowland Terrace (and the restaurant will change names as well).
After its return, the stage will continue hosting live musical acts but will also be home to a new entertainment offering by the name of Jedi Training Academy. For this show young audience members will be given training in how to fight enemies using the dark side of the Force. It should be a lot of fun to have the park filled with youngsters able to actually use their glowing light sabers with skill. There will be no hope for adults surviving the day.
By the way, if you're interested in being one of the Jedi Knights offering the training the following open casting call on August 31 was posted last week:
