OVERVIEW

Welcome to Frightmare 2.0! This year, we’re moving away from Over Farm and are going in harder than ever before. In a previously abandoned building, we have BRAND NEW mazes, with multiple themes within, insane stage shows and we’ll have queues of people that need and want entertaining.

We need over 100 actors to perform in the attractions and in the street team and we’re looking for the best of the best.  With Scream Park Entertainments at the helm, we’re expecting you to bring your A-game, so we can really make people scream, laugh, or cry…

PERFORMING STYLES

BRAND NEW attractions at Frightmare 2.0, all with various themes and all with different performance styles. We are looking for crazy physical performers who can respond and adapt quickly to insane fast-paced changing environments. We also need actors who have very strong improvisation skills that can interact and engage with the up-close audience.

  • 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

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 24th & Sunday 25th September 2022
VENUE:
1 Brunswick Road, Gloucester GL1 1PU
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.
