MIDLAND, Mich. - The Great Lakes Loons are seeking the region's best and brightest entertainers to become Fun Flock members for the 2014 season. Cast member tryouts will be at Dow Diamond from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 4 and Wednesday, February 5.

The Loons Fun Flock is responsible for facilitating all in-game entertainment at Dow Diamond during Loons home games. This includes welcoming fans to the stadium, preparing contestants for skits, assisting mascots, and dancing and performing between innings. In addition, the Loons are seeking mascots to engage and interact with fans during games.

"The Loons are committed to providing the best entertainment experience possible for our fans from the moment the first fan arrives until the last fan has left the building," said Chris Mundhenk, Loons Vice President of Marketing and Entertainment. "The Fun Flock is a key to that experience by creating a fun, unique family-friendly atmosphere for our fans."

Candidates must be 16 years of age, confident and enthusiastic when performing in front of large crowds, and must possess excellent communication skills along with an outgoing personality to interact with fans of all ages. A background in dance, cheerleading, theatre or other performing arts is a plus, but not required. Tryouts will include dancing, improv skits and interview questions. Candidates should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to be active and have fun!

Participants are encouraged to pre-register for tryouts, though walk-up auditions are also permissible. To schedule a tryout, contact Loons Promotion Manager Amber Ferris at 989.837.6140 or aferris@loons.com.

The Great Lakes Loons are an eighth-year Single-A partner of the Los Angeles Dodgers. For tickets or general information, visit Loons.com or call 989-837-BALL.
