Opening night for Laguna Beach's Pageant of the Masters is scheduled for July 9, which gives aspiring participants just six months to practice their breath control. For those unfamiliar, Pageant of the Masters is an annual show that re-creates famous works of art by having volunteers stand in as the subjects of the selected paintings. And they're casting this weekend for the 2008 show. No prior acting experience is required-just the ability to maintain a rigid pose for a while. Perhaps you've had an odd yearning to dress like Jesus and didn't capitalize on the opportunity during Halloween? Well, there is hope: Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper is on the bill. Lucky you!
Sat., Jan. 5, 7-9 p.m.; Sun., Jan. 6, 2-5 p.m.; Thu., Jan. 10, 7-9 p.m., 2008
