It's barely August and Walt Disney World is already prepping for the upcoming holidays.
The company is ramping up for the Holidays Around the World at Epcot by hosting auditions for various performers during the two-month-long event.
The Disney auditions calendar hints at a new musical performance is coming to Epcot for the holidays. Auditions for male mariachi musicians (with singing chops) are scheduled for Aug. 11.
Described as a "new offering," Disney is looking to put together a five-piece Mariachi band to perform from Nov. 22 to Jan. 6 in the Mexico Pavilion.
These musicians will convey the spirit and tradition of Dia de los Muertos through music and narration," according to the audition post.
Auditions also include a search for female and male vocalists to be part of Voices of Liberty, an eight-piece a cappella group that's a crowd favorite at the park. Normally, the group performs in the American Adventure Rotunda.
For the purpose of the audition, singers would perform in November and December during the Candlelight Processional, singing as part of a mass choir and orchestra to retell the story of Christmas.
