Open casting calls for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando


If you’re looking forward to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter opening at Universal Orlando’s Islands of Adventure theme park in 2010 and wish you could conjure up a way to be part of the magic, you will soon have your chance.

Thanks to a post on Orlando United, we’ve learned that Universal Orlando is holding open casting calls for atmosphere roles as part of the Wizarding World. They’re looking for male and female actors who can speak with a British accent. More specifically, Universal is holding calls for male actors with strong improv and interaction skills who are able to portray an age range of mid-thiries to mid-forties. In addition, they’re casting male and female actors who are youthful in appearance.

Casting is being held on Saturday, Nov. 14 and Sunday, Nov. 15 at 10 a.m. in the Universal Orlando Human Resources Lobby at 1000 Universal Studios Plaza, Orlando, FL 32819.

Full-time, part-time, and seasonal positions are available. All actors should prepare a one-minute monologue for audition and candidates must be available for callbacks on Monday, Nov. 16 and rehearsals beginning in January.

If you’re a current team member at Universal, they’re hiring internally for positions within the Wizarding World for food and beverage, merchandise and attractions operations.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter has been announced to be opening in Spring 2010 so it’s good news that Universal has finally begun its casting process. Below is our latest video update on the construction progress of the new area of Islands of Adventure. It’s a couple of weeks old, so keep checking back for a more updated video soon.

This app isn’t nearly as appealing as I thought it would be. It will only give you Wait Times and Fastpass details while in THAT park. That is what the tip board is for isn’t it?

Wow – the whole thing looks amazing! I can speak with a British accent – oh, wait, that could be because I am British … Anyway, this whole “opening in Spring” thing is driving me nuts – does this mean it will be open in May when I go to Florida from the UK??
