FRIGHTMARE 2.0 2022
Casting for RETURNING Performers

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION CAREFULLY


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.

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
  • £64 per night (for all ages)
  • Up to 15 nights work
  • 2 free tickets to allow friends and family to come to the event on PREVIEW NIGHT!

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 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 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!!
