No acting experience is necessary, but the job requires a desire for each employee to do his or her best. Acting in a haunted house can be both fun and rewarding. The power you have over people looking to be frightened can be extremely exhilarating. We look for actors that can show up on time, work weekends, have transportation to and from work, and most importantly have some love of the macabre. If you have always wanted to dress up in costume, be someone else, run around scaring the daylights out of people, AND be rewarded for doing it, then this is the job for you. Scream Team leaders will provide training, costumes, and make-up.
Our season runs weekends from the last weekend in September through the first weekend in November. You are required to attend orientation, all auditions, and final rehearsal.
