The internationally acclaimed performance group Living Legends will be holding open auditions for all interested Latin American, Polynesian and Native American full-time BYU students August 27-28, 2015.
Students are highly encouraged to attend an open house on Wednesday, August 26, 2015 from 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM at 1137 RB where they can informally meet former members and get audition tips.
A three-minute private audition will then be held first on Thursday followed by a group dance audition where hopefuls will be costumed and taught numbers from the show, “Seasons.”
Final callbacks will take place on Friday and interviews will occur on Saturday. Audition results will be posted on Monday or Tuesday.
Since 1971, Living Legends—formerly known as the Lamanite Generation—has performed the world over, appearing before audiences that have included the queen of Thailand, the governor general of Jamaica, and the queen of Denmark. During the 2002 Winter Olympics, Living Legends performed for athletes and visitors in the Opening Ceremonies as well as the Medals Plaza. Each year the noted ensemble’s performances are broadcast to millions. Living Legends has participated with the Alaska National Guard in its “Operation Santa Claus,” and they have also been honored performers at the Alaska Federation of Natives’ annual convention.
Whether in Asia, Eastern or Western Europe, North or South America, or the South Pacific, Living Legends inspires audiences with its spectacular display of the cultures of Polynesia and the Americas.
The Living Legends tour for 2015-2016 will be in Samoa, Tonga, and New Zealand.
