Actor Requirements

Auditions will be held for acting positions only. You do not need to bring anything with you. You do not have to prepare a monologue. Just come, have fun, and give us your best scream! No experience is necessary, but the job requires an employee to do their best. Acting in a haunted event can be both fun and rewarding. The power you have to be frighten guests can be extremely exhilarating. We look for actors who can show up on time, work weekends, have transportation to and from work, and most importantly, have a 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 get paid for doing it, then this is the job for you. Scare Farm Team leaders will provide training, costumes, and make-up.

Keep in mind this job is not for everyone. However, if you are into scaring people in a ghoolish environment with a team of others like you, it will be a fun season.
