Stamina, endurance, humor, collaborative spirit and creative thinking needed. For haunt actors: 17+ years old, skills in improv and audience interaction (or basic theater skills). Flexibility, stamina, and willingness to take direction needed, as we often workshop the roles and change them up based on guest feedback. Warning: Scaring people can be addictive.

Character breakdown / Project needs
Dr. Virginia Bryant
Serves as a primary "lore actors" to entertain and inform guests waiting in line to enter our haunted attraction. She is a 1930s-era marine scientist investigation a Lovecraftian event in a small fishing village. She has gone mad in the process. This character will be separating visitors into smaller groups, pacing them out every minute or so, all while staying in character. We need someone with improv, enthusiasm, endurance, crowd management skills to attend every night to help every guest start their visit with a realistic, themed experience. An excellent chance to improve your interaction skills!
Haunt Actors, Various
You'll need the stamina, enthusiasm, and collaborative spirit to get a costume, makeup, and portray a fiend in an interactive Lovecraftian walkthrough story. We will train you on character roles, fear techniques, and safety, as you will interact with every guest walking through the event.
