“Of the 26 rehearsal sessions we had, I saw [Danny Boyle] at all but two of them… him being around all the time really added to everyone’s enthusiasm and positivity.”
- Mike Reeve on participating on the Olympic Ceremony
This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show my guest is Mike Reeve, one of the 7,500 volunteers who participated in the Olympic Opening Ceremony. That’s him at the pointy end of the big arrow in the picture above. We discuss what it’s like to go to a dance audition with no dancing experience, how director Danny Boyle articulated his vision to the cast, and what you actually get for participating.
Next week on the show - Fred Graver!
