The Shed, Toppers Twister, Squealers Yard, Howl Valley High, Red, & A NEW HAUNT FOR 2023!
There are six attractions and a Street Theatre team at The Howl, all with different styles of performance. The Shed for instance requires very physical performers who can respond and adapt quickly to the ever changing environment within a high impact maze, whereas The Squealers Yard needs actors with great improvisation skills and can interact and engage with the up-close audience.
All attractions run in the evenings, though Toppers & Red all have daytime sessions starting at 10.00am. 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 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.
