Séance, Haunted Hayride, Caged, The Offering, Wonderland, and 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.
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 25th & Sunday 26th September 2021
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 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 Frightmare. Competition is fierce!!
