VANCOUVER - Olympic organizers have launched a massive casting call for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Games.

They're looking for 4500 dancers, athletes and performers to be part of the shows.

Aspiring volunteers need to be over 17 years old and begin the process by filling out an online application form by May 1.

Organizers say they'll accept applications from across Canada, but transportation and accommodation won't be provided.

Auditions will begin in May and rehearsals start in November.

The ceremonies are being produced by an Australian company and are funded by the organizing committee and the federal government.
