  • Perform in a terrifying scare maze.
  • Work in a variety of environments including strobes, smoke and darkness.
  • Wear masks, prosthetics, theatrical make-up and more.
  • Work both indoors and outdoors in all types of weather and temperatures.
  • Work long hours whilst performing a physically demanding, high-energy role.

The Requirements:

Scare Actors: You will need to be a talented, versatile and enthusiastic actor with previous experience and/or ability in improvisational theatre. Scare mazes are very demanding, so you will need to be physically fit with good stamina and endurance. Previous scare maze experience is a bonus but not essential, as training will be given.

Before you decide to step into the spotlight as a Scarefest Actor, think seriously about the job requirements. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are you willing to work in dark, smoky and potentially claustrophobic conditions?
  • Are you open to the possibility of wearing prosthetics, masks, contact lenses etc?
  • Are you fit enough to work in a physically challenging role for long periods of time?
  • Are you willing to work in a high-pressure Entertainment environment where schedules, times and requirements are ever changing?

If the answer to all of those questions is ‘YES’ then you could be the perfect Cast Member for us!
