    QUICK EVERYONE .... CHECK YOUR EMAILS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    JUST GOT THIS ...........

    As you know, you have been on our Olympic Ceremonies cast Reserve list, and thank you for your patience. This is to say – congratulations! In the next few days, we will be emailing you to offer you a role in one of our exciting Paralympic Ceremonies, and we would be delighted if you would accept. The Paralympic ceremonies are the culmination of the entire Games and will be a dynamic and beautiful celebration of the diversity and vibrancy of modern Britain.

    Before you accept the role, and once you have checked your availability for the dates we will be offering you, we need you to understand that acceptance of the role will mean that you will be removed from the Olympic ceremonies reserve list. We would urge you to accept, as this is very much more likely to mean that you will be performing in one of the London 2012 ceremonies, as we currently do not have any opportunities available in either of the Olympic ceremonies for our Reserve team.

    Whatever you decide to do, please respond by clicking on the relevant link in the offer letter you will be receiving shortly.

    We will hope to see you at Paralympic rehearsals!

    Best wishes

    Arghhhhh I don't have the e-mail. Perhaps it's only going out to Olympic reserves who were successful. Technically I am an Olympic reserve but I shouldn't be because of my clash. Much e-mail checking to come this afternoon methinks.

    So happy for you guys though

    Congrats Cinnamon and fyrecracker! So glad your patience has been rewarded!

    Given the line about there being no current opportunities in the regular ceremonies for reserves, I wonder what that means for our reserves who didn't try the Para route.

    Thank you Rafiki! I am sure that the rest of the Paralympic emails from casting will be going out in the next few days along with ours. I have my fingers crossed for you.
