HALLOWSCREAM 2019
Casting for RETURNING Performers
(Those that worked the 2016/2017/2018 seasons ONLY)

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY


OVERVIEW

Based on a farm where a terrible tragedy occurred back in 1873, and the restless souls who died on that night return each Halloween to torment those who dare to visit.

BEST SCREAM PARK 2017! Hallowscream at York Maze is a multi award-winning Halloween scream park with five scare attractions, stage shows, and street theatre. This year it’s 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.

PERFORMING STYLES

The Flesh Pot, 2073, Barnaggedon, Corny’s Cornevil and NEW for 2019, Singularity

There are five attractions and a Street Theatre team at Hallowscream, all with different styles of performance.  Barnaggedon, for instance, requires very physical performers who can respond and adapt quickly to the ever changing environment within a high impact maze, whereas 2073 requires actors with great improvisation skills who can interact and engage with the up-close audience.

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 an award winning event with some of the UK’s most experienced and well known Scare Practitioners
  • A professional acting contract
  • £55 or £65 per night (Night dependant). 15 Nights
  • 2 free tickets to allow friends and family to come to the event

SCREAM TRAINING

As a returning performer, you will already have the knowledge and experience to go straight through to Scream Training.  This is the second stage of audition and you are not guaranteed a position even if you worked on previous years.  Scream Training will be for casting purposes and you need to let us know that you want to be considered.

DATE: Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October 2019
VENUE:
York maze, Elvington Ln, York YO19 5LT
TIME:
9.30am – 5.00pm (ALL DAY)

IMPORTANT: SCREAM TRAINING IS MANDATORY. YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ATTEND AT LEAST 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. Please remember how many people are keen to work at Hallowscream. Competition is fierce!!
