The open audition call will be for casting for the three marquee shows at the 2004 Fair including City Rhythm A Vancouver Celebration. This brand new show will run four times daily during the 17 day PNE Fair. Staged on front of and on top of the historic Agrodome building, City Rhythm celebrates Vancouver ? from its eclectic West Coast lifestyle to the diverse people that make up the vibrant city. The multi-layered cast of City Rhythm will electrify Celebration plaza through energetic dance, colour props and amazing stunts.

The second show being cast is Bring On The Night, this award winning pyro-musical spectacular which rocks the skies above the fairgrounds each night at 10:30pm. Billed as a Rock Spectacular, Bring On The Night explodes to the sounds of a dynamic Rock Opera. An energetic live cast will emerge from exciting structures throughout the centre grounds area of the park. The show will use powerful theatrical special effects including mechanical lifts and intricate staging. Wild guitars, flying line rockets, and exploding fire effects will work in harmony to deliver a 360-degree immersive show experience.
