JOIN THE SCARE TEAM

BUILD OUT CREW, ACTORS, and SPECIAL EFFECTS MAKEUP ARTISTS WANTED!

This is an all volunteer event, but we would love to have you join the fun.

Sign-up online to be a part of the team HERE! and we will contact you, or come by most Saturdays between 1:00 and 5:00 to sign up.

On the application, you will be able to list the nights and times you will be available to work for us. Some actors are required to report by 5:00 p.m., however, ALL actors MUST report by 5:00 p.m. on the nights that they are scheduled.

Build Out Crew: We need people that can help us set up our attraction. This job starts August 1st and runs through October 1st. People interested in these positions must be able to work unloading, moving things, screwing walls together, painting, etc. We are also looking for people with electrical experience and carpentry background. This work includes thematic decorating. If you are a set builder or good with faux paint techniques, we want you.

Makeup Artists: We are particularly looking for special effects makeup artists. We would like to see examples of your work. If you have a portfolio or photographs (electronic is fine) catered to special effects, please bring that with you to the interview. Makeup artists must report by 5:00 p.m. each night to begin applying makeup to our actors. Some makeup artists like to become part of the show as an actor and get in costume and makeup work until we close around 11:30 p.m., midnight, or later (on busy nights). If you would like this option, please let us know during your interview.

Actor Requirements: No acting experience is necessary, but the job requires a desire to do your 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 the event, and most importantly have some love of the genre. If you’ve always wanted to dress up in costume, be someone else, run around scaring the daylights out of people, this is where you belong. Scare team leaders will provide training and we provide the costuming and makeup.

The haunted house is open for 9 nights this year including 2 brand new events run in complete darkness.

If your dream is to act, The Haunt is a great place to begin or if you’re already an actor, it’s a great place to practice night after night! This is your chance to perform for hundreds if not thousands of people in the most popular haunted house in our area for a different audience every other minute, and play different roles.

If you need any other information, please e-mail volunteer@midstatescare.com.
