 ここで最も重要なのは、契約の開始日と期間。今回は「Six month or longer contracts begin July through September 2012.」ということですので、2012年7月から最低6カ月間。そして今回オーディション対象となるショーは「ペコス・グーフィーのフロンティア・レビュー」「ミニー・オー・ミニー」「ビッグバンドビート」ですので、おそらくこれらのショーは(契約が変わらない限り)そのあたりまでは続くのかもしれません。

 また、もう1つダンサー向けのオーディションが行われています。

 こちらも「Six month or longer contracts begin July through September 2012.」。そして対象はDisney Princes & Princesses such as Cinderella, Snow White and Prince Charming in “One Man’s Dream II: The Magic Lives On”や“Mystic Rhythms”などで、これらも同様に継続される可能性が高いです。

#もちろん、同様の趣向の別ショーをスタートする、という可能性はあります。が、過去の同サイト事例では、Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter AirlineMad T Partyなど、新ショーは新ショーとしてオーディションを行っていたりします。

 ほかにも東京ディズニーシー、アンダー・ザ・シーのアリエル役のオーディションも開催。とにかく、ファンの方よかったですね。私はというと新ショーのネタがなかったので若干しょんぼりしてます(苦笑)。Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter Airlineなんかはこのサイトからの情報だったので。

追記:参考までにですが、日本人ダンサーについては上記DisneyAuditions.comではなく日本でオーディションを行っています。通常毎年9月の決められた日程でまとめて行われます。
