Dallas Opera needs
superheroes supers, aka hot men
Let your pecs do the talking.
DALLAS The Dallas Opera is looking for shirtless hotties who don’t mind being “modestly paid.” The Opera is casting non-speaking, non-singing roles to men ages 18 to 50 whose muscles will look good under the spotlight during a production of Aida at the Winspear Opera House.
Rehearsals begin October 1 for supernumeraries, or “supers” for short. Those chosen will need to be available October 26, 28, and 31, and November 3, 9, and 11 for performances, where they'll act as guards, torchbearers, and fanbearers in the show.
Supers aren’t just lookers, a press release explains. They need at least some acting skills. “Supernumeraries are usually non-professionals with an interest in acting, whether comedy or drama, and a love of music and theater. Becoming a super not only allows you to don wigs and costumes in a grown-up version of ‘playing dress-up,’ it puts you onstage in the heart of the action where you bring your character to life for an audience of your family, friends, co-workers, and peers,” according to a press release.
Oh, and this: Those with foot phobias need not apply. Shirtless supers may also need to be shoeless.
