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."

I’m surprised—the UK doesn’t have one of these already? I’d love to see this, but there’s no way I’d be able to fly up to Boston anytime soon. :(

That would be pretty cool. If only I lived nearer (I’m in the UK) and didn’t go to school!!

Good luck to everyone who enter’s! :)

Some of the people in Chicago had horrible British accents so it really shouldn’t be that hard to fake one…..

Oh man. I have a friend near Boston – I’m definitely gonna need to tell her about this!

I’ve been dying to go to the exhibit in Chicago for AGES now, and I just haven’t been able to. I was actually in Chicago earlier this summer, and I STILL wasn’t able to visit. Urghh. Maybe I’ll get lucky and they’ll come to Minneapolis. Hahaha.
