Auditions posted for actors to join Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
An open audition call has been posted at Disney Auditions for a unique acting position – a “Gatherer” in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
At Black Spire Outpost, a group known as the “Gatherers” work inside a covert workshop – likely Savi’s Workshop. The Gatherers are experts in the art of designing and building lightsabers for those Force users who seek one.
According to the audition call, Gatherers are “warm and inviting; capable of leading a structured interactive experience. Gatherers have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in the galaxy […] Though slightly quirky and mysterious, the Gatherer is always personable and humorous.”
The audition doesn’t say for sure, but we think this could be similar to the Ollivander’s wand experience at Universal Orlando’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and the Gatherers akin to the experience’s wandkeepers.
Auditions will be held on Tuesday, May 21 at 4 p.m. at the Disney’s Animal Kingdom Rehearsal Facility. Those chosen for employment will be able to immediately apply for membership in the Actor’s Equity Association. Callbacks will be held on May 28-29 in Orlando, and hopefuls are expected to prepare from a provided script for their first audition.
