Show Boaters: Sky One Launch Search For Cruise Ship Entertainers

Sky One, in conjunction with Jamie Oliver’s Fresh One Productions are looking for people to take part in ‘Show Boaters’ a new television program aimed to find new cruise ship entertainers, who can sing, dance and act.

Whilst the details of the new show are yet to be finalised, it is believed that those taking part will compete for a prize guaranteed to open up a lot of opportunities a for the lucky winner.

Whilst it is unconfirmed as to whether they will actually be rewarded with a full-time position on a cruise ship, the show is aiming to follow the contestants on a journey of personal discovery as they compete against each other to see who has what it takes to be the ship’s star performer.

Aside from the more ‘talent-show’ aspects of the program, contestants will also get a glimpse of the inner workings of a cruise ship, whilst assisting with the crew’s daily duties, such as serving in the restaurants and cleaning up the public areas.

Seasoned cruise ship entertainers have been quick to commend the new idea; Gary Williams, who himself has starred in his own show on cruises for the past 20 years commented “I have often wondered how some X-Factor or Pop Idol winners would cope having to perform their own 50 minute solo show to an international audience. On many luxury cruise lines the standard of entertainment is very high...it sounds like this competition will prepare the hopefuls for the demands and realities of a long-term career”.

All applicants are invited to apply through the regular channels by 31st January 2011.
