Tulleys Shocktober Fest 2019
Casting for NEW Performers

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY


OVERVIEW

Tulleys Farm Shocktober Fest is Europe’s largest Scream Park and winners of multiple industry and public voted awards. Shocktober Fest has since 2008 repeatedly won the title of the UK’S BEST SCREAM PARK, and more recently collecting the award for Best Street Theatre.

This year it’s going to be bigger and better than ever and Scream Park Entertainments are at the helm. We need 250 actors to perform in the mazes and attractions and as always, we’re looking for the best of the best.

Tulleys Shocktober Fest

PERFORMING STYLES

The Creepy Cottage, Horrorwood Haunted Hayride, The Cellar, The Colony, Vixi, The Chop Shop , Twisted Clowns, The Coven of 13, and BRAND NEW FOR 2019, Wastelands Penitentiary.

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

All attractions run in the evenings, though Horrorwood Haunted Hayride, Creepy Cottage and Coven of 13 all have afternoon sessions starting at 11.30am.  So some actors will be required earlier than others.

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.

  • The opportunity to work at Europe’s largest Scream Park with some of the UK’s most experienced and well known Scare Practitioners

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.
