Channel NewsAsia – Friday, April 24

SINGAPORE: The global search for Universal Studios Singapore stars has begun. Resorts World at Sentosa is recruiting nearly 200 talents for its theme park, which will open its doors early next year.

Gregory Birkhimer, Creative Director, Entertainment, Resorts World at Sentosa, said: “We’re looking for accomplished, professional singers and dancers who do both equally well. Not just a dancer, not just a singer, but they have to be good singer-dancers as well as performers that make us want to watch them.”

Resorts World at Sentosa is looking to hire 60 musical talents, 60 costume performers and 50 stuntmen. And the search begins here in Singapore.

Andrea Teo, Vice-President, Entertainment, Resorts World at Sentosa, said: “We always start with Singapore because that’s where we are, that’s where we’re based. And we’re very excited about giving the opportunity to people in Singapore to actually do what they love, and to build a career out of entertainment.”

The integrated resort operator said those selected will be given a one-year contract on the same terms, regardless of origin.

Auditions will be held in Singapore next Monday and Tuesday, before moving to 10 cities, including Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong. Auditions will also be held in Gold Coast, Melbourne, Auckland, Orlando, Toronto, Salt Lake City and Hollywood.

Shortlisted candidates will be hired in August, with the first rehearsal expected in October.

So far, some 90 people have already registered for auditions in Singapore.
