May 24, 2019 7:50AM CDT
- In what amounts to a once-in-a-lifetime dream job for Star Wars fanboys everywhere, Disneyland is holding auditions for Stormtroopers.
- The new crew of First Order soldiers will populate the park’s newest attraction, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. Candidates need to be between 5-10 and 6 feet tall and must exhibit “high energy levels,” according to the audition posting. They also need to be high school graduates who are at least 18 years old.
- But Stormtrooper hopefuls should take note: If you think donning futuristic white armor will improve your social life, think again — the job requires cast members to work throughout the summer, including weekends and holidays. Auditions get underway on Friday.
- What costumed character do you secretly dream of being? Would working in a costume at a theme park be cool or a nightmare?
