Artistic directors Danny Boyle and Kim Gavin are searching for performers to fill roles as dancers, actors, and percussionists.

"To deliver Ceremonies of this scale a significant amount of time commitment is required from the volunteer performers," said Locog director of ceremonies, education and live sites Bill Morris.

"Previous performance experience is not required for people to apply, applicants simply need lots of enthusiasm, personality, a positive attitude, huge amounts of energy and a willingness to perform in front of a stadium audience and to millions of people around the world."

Applicants must be able to participate in up to two auditions that will take place evenings and weekends in November and early December of this year, up to two or three rehearsal sessions each week of up to four hours per session from March 2012.
