Join the cool ghouls at Castle Blood.
Do you want to be part of our FUN, all-volunteer acting crew at Castle Blood?
The Castle Blood Cast is a unique blend of talented locals and gifted professional performers from across the country.
Working at Castle Blood is an excellent opportunity to gain live, interactive performance training, and network with other likeminded performers, haunters, and costumers.
Every year Castle Blood has a limited number of spaces for new actor / performer / trainees. We are currently accepting applications.
Are you over 18 years of age?
Do you love Halloween, Acting, Wearing Costumes and/or Performing? Are you creative?
Can you take direction? Can you stay in character for an entire evening?
Unlike most haunted houses, the Castle is a ‘show’ that has a defined script, and needs a certain amount of actors to fill those scripted parts (yes, even selling the hot dogs). Everyone strives to be the best actor/character they can be. Do you understand that no one actor is more important than the show itself because each performer is a character that the public loves?
Even though we are a scripted show, the fact that we deal with the public in true interactive theatre style means that each tour can vary widely no matter how precise we try to be.
Can you adapt and ad lib to help smooth things along, without totally losing the character, or getting upset with surrounding actors?
Positions you may be asked to fill include Scare Actor, Scene Actor, Guides, and Front of House staff. Your best fit will be determined by the Actor Manager.
Shows are Friday, Saturday, Sunday evenings in October and Sunday afternoon “daytime” shows the last two weekends of the month.
We meet with eligible applicants before October to prepare them for the Halloween season including costume selection and orientation.
To apply please email a letter of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “Join the cast”.
