MIDLAND, Mich. - The Great Lakes Loons are launching a regional search for the best and brightest entertainers to become Fun Flock cast members for the 2013 season. Cast member tryouts will be held at Dow Diamond from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, February 27 and Thursday, February 28.

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, dancing and performing between innings. In addition, the Loons are searching for hosts to emcee between-innings entertainment, as well as 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 key to that experience by creating a fun, unique, family-friendly atmosphere for our fans."

Candidates must be sixteen years of age, must be 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. Candidates with a background in dance, cheerleading, theatre or other performing arts is a plus, but is 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!
