Have you ever wanted to be part of an opening ceremony? Well now’s your chance. The Commonwealth Games will be held just up the road on the Gold Coast and you can get involved but you have to apply by midnight September 3.

Local performer, Charles Crawshaw, is enthusiastic about the forthcoming auditions.

‘I’d would love it if Byron Bay sends a bus load up to the Gold Coast for the auditions in September. We have so many talented people here that would be fully self expressed if chosen to open the games next year.’

They are looking for a range of skilled and unskilled performers who can get involved and no experience is needed.

To apply you have to be 16, or 16 by September 3, and ready to commit to rehearsals on the Gold Coast from mid-January 2018. They will start at two per week building up to three-four rehearsals a week just prior to the opening ceremony.

If you want to get involved find out more and apply to audition here.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
