Back in July we first told you Harry Potter, the Exhibition would be moving to the next stop on the tour to Boston. Now we can report that Museum of Science in Boston, Massachusetts is hiring workers specifically for the traveling exhibition of props and costumes from the Harry Potter films which will open next month on October 25th. However the six positions open require workers to use an authentic British Accent, as the Museum job listing says:

"Six (6) positions must be in the exhibit at all times. The staff in these six positions must have an authentic British accent at all times! Ideal candidates will have some familiarity of the Harry Potter™ films, and work well in direct contact with the general public. The Exhibit Host will work in all six positions, rotating about every hour or so into another position. Again, all six positions must be in place whenever the exhibit is open; an authentic British accent will be used at all times."

"Both full-time (35+ hrs/wk) and part-time (10 to 16 hrs/wk) temporary Exhibit Hosts are needed to provide the necessary coverage in this exhibition. The Museum of Science will be hiring for 20+ total temporary positions.The ideal candidate will have as much schedule flexibility as possible to work mornings, afternoons, and some evenings, on any days of the week and weekends, from mid October 2009 through late February 2010. The exhibit is open every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas."

Sounds so cool. It’s at times like these that I hate the fact that I live in Norway, where practically nothing ever happens involving Potter. At least not that I know of. So that kinda sucks. But it sounds so cool. Wish I could go to one of these things. ^^

When I went to Chicago’s exhibit, the only one who had a Bristish accent was the one who introduced us to the exhibit. I’ll take that back I think the one who did the sorting hat for a couple of kid’s had one. The other people just walked around to make sure we were following the rules.

I wish I could do an accent, as I only live 45 minutes away…oh well, I will just ahve to settle for going to it!
As far as the “British” accent, I think most Americans cannot tell the differences! Unless they hold an interest in the UK…
