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’ll be travelling up from NYC for the opening in Boston on Oct.26 with The Group That Shall Not Be Named (HP fans meetup). The HP-MA fan group has graciously invited us to their Halloween party the night before so it should be an excititng weekend for us!

Maybe they do mean all British accents. After all, Professor McGonagall is Scottish and Seamus Finnegan is Irish! I hope the exhibit comes to Philadelphia. They’ve already had a “Narnia” exhibit and a “Star Trek” exhibit at the Franklin Institute.

Yeah, we in the US get the theme park (can’t wait!!), but Britain has the REAL SITES, like King’s Cross Station, Glenfinnan Viaduct and the “Hogwarts Express” train, and other filming sites like Alnwick Castle and Lacock Abbey and village. Visit them all, they’re fantastic!

Does anyone know where they are going after Boston and how long they will be in Boston? I really hope I can make it since I didn’t get to go to the Chicago one.

I went to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago to see the HP exhibition. IT WAS SO COOL! I saw loads of props, costumes (and yes, they had Hermione’s Yule Ball dress), and I got to throw a Quaffle into the goal hoops!

I have an interview, or, as they call it, an “audition”, next week… scared crazy about the accent but I’ve been practicing tons… it would be a dream job, at least until February.
