**Audition Call**

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Maybe you wanted to be a Fairy Queen and sprinkle fairy dust everywhere you go? Or a Cowboy shooting at the Outlaws as they try to rob the bank? Or be inside an authentic Chinese lion? How about being a dancer in a Rio-style Carnival or a Bollywood show? Can you see yourself being a Dinosaur Handler and keeping dinosaurs big and small under control?

If the answer is yes to any of the these, now is your chance! Join our team today and have the opportunity to do what you’ve always wanted to do.
