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.
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 23rd & Sunday 24th September 2023
VENUE: Mead Open Farm, Stanbridge Road, Billington. LU7 9JH
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.
