Universal Orlando Casting Performers for New Summer Mega Movie Parade

Shannen Ace

After 2 years, it looks like Universal Studios Florida may finally be getting a new parade. Universal’s Superstar Parade was permanently closed back in June of 2022 to make way for a new experience, but things have remained quiet until now. Universal Orlando Resort is casting performers, including dancers and stilt walkers for a new seasonal “live street experience” — possibly the rumored Universal Mega Movie summer parade.

Universal Seeking Dancers, Animated Performers, and Stilt Walkers

Universal Orlando Resort is seeking dancers with strong jazz technique, “animated” performers to play costumed characters, and stilt walkers with movement ability.

They are accepting online submissions through April 9, 2024. Rehearsals will be from May to July and performers must be available for four-hour shifts on performance dates from July through mid-November.

The rumored summer Universal Mega Movie Parade and Tribute Store will be inspired by classic films like “Ghostbusters” and “Jaws.” The former is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and may have a dedicated room in the Tribute Store.

The height ranges for animated performers are 4’7”-5’6” and 5’8”- 6’1”. Stilt walkers should be between 5’8″ and 6′. There are no height requirements for dancers.

All performers must provide a headshot, resume, full-length photo in athletic wear, and an audition video link.

Dancers must perform 32 counts of an upbeat technical jazz or musical theater routine. Animated performers and stilt walkers must do a 360-degree turn with their arms out. Stilt walkers should also explain their stilt walking experience and may be invited to a callback to demonstrate their abilities.
