Job fair held for positions with Portland Cirque du Soleil show

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

For anyone that has ever dreamed of joining the circus, now may be their chance.

Cirque du Soleil is looking for more than 250 local people to work at their newest show, and they're holding a job fair to fill the roles.

The show "Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities" runs from late August to October, and they are hiring everything from front of house clerks and ushers to backstage costume assistants and cooks.

At one of the job fairs held Friday, Brook Poggi with Adecco Staffing said there are some local workers that look forward to this opportunity anytime it is available.

"I hate to call them jobs because they’re really a lot of fun. It’s kind of a project,” she said. “We have people that come, even from this information session, year after year – we call them followers or returners – that come and just want to work these projects because it is such a fun experience"

For those thinking the circus could be their calling, the job fairs will continue through August.
