FRIGHTMARE 2019
Casting for NEW Performers

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY


OVERVIEW

Welcome to Frightmare! From a terrifying journey on the Haunted Hayride to a walk through your worst nightmare, our cast of bloody and scary characters are waiting for you at Over Farm, Gloucester this Halloween season.

This Halloween season Frightmare has six scare attractions and a street theatre team! This year is going to be bigger and better than ever and Scream Park Entertainments are at the helm. We need over 100 actors to perform in the attractions and on the street theatre team and we’re looking for the best of the best!

Frightmare

PERFORMING STYLES

Séance, Haunted Hayride, Caged, The Offering, Wonderland, and NEW for 2019, Carvinal

There are six attractions at Frightmare, all with different styles of performance.  We are looking for very physical performers who can respond and adapt quickly to the ever changing environments, and we also need actors who have very strong improvisation skills that can interact and engage with the up-close audience.

All attractions run in the evenings, though Wonderland & Caged all have daytime sessions (Spookyard) starting at 9.30am.  So we do require a small number of actors during the day.

It’s hard work, and on some of the attractions it’s also cold and wet.  You may be working outdoors, but shelter is always nearby.

PERFORMERS WILL RECEIVE

  • Full training and guidance from Scream Park Entertainments ‘Scream Training’
  • The opportunity to work on one of the biggest Halloween Events in the UK with some of the UK’s most experienced and well known Scare Practitioners
  • A professional acting contract
  • £52 per night (10 Nights)
  • Paid daytime performing work also on offer (9 Days)
  • 2 free tickets to allow friends and family to come to the event on OPENING NIGHT!

THE AUDITION

DATE: Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September 2019
VENUE: Over Farm Market, Over, Gloucester GL2 8DB
TIME SLOTS: 11.00am, 1.30pm, & 4.00pm.

Each session will last approximately 2 hours.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME

  • UNDER 18 Signed Permission form (If applicable) This will also be emailed to you.
  • Make sure you are wearing comfortable clothes and shoes that will not restrict movement.
  • A bottle of water.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE AUDITION 

The audition is in workshop style.  There will be games, exercises and activities that will help us to identify whether you are suitable for our team and also which sort of Scare Performance style suits you best.  The workshop is energetic, hard work, but most of all, fun!

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS

The designs of the attraction spaces mean that we only have limited scope for people with certain mobility restrictions.  However, still contact us and let us know the requirements you may have for auditions or if you were to be offered a position, and we will try our hardest to realise a solution so that you can perform if you pass the audition stage.

SCREAM TRAINING

If you are successful in your audition, you will be invited to attend one of the ‘Scream Training’ days. This is the second and final round of the audition process.

DATE: Saturday 28th & Sunday 29th September 2019
VENUE: 
Over Farm Market, Over, Gloucester GL2 8DB
TIME: 
9.30am – 5.00pm (ALL DAY)

IMPORTANT: SCREAM TRAINING IS MANDATORY. 
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND ONE OF THE SPECIFIED DAYS. IF YOU CAN NOT, DO NOT APPLY. 

There are NO circumstances that would allow a performer to be cast without attending Scream Training.  This is still an audition – please do not be complacent, the training must be taken seriously and is a requirement for our insurance and health and safety.
