Based in Burton-on-Trent, The National Forest Adventure Farm, creators of the popular “SCREAMFEST” Halloween event, are looking for exciting and scary entertainers who are not scared of getting up close and personal with terrified audiences. We’re looking for a 1 or 2 piece performance team who can confidently and dramatically capture our audience’s attention and imagination at this year’s 12 night event for a 'Story Teller' role and also 'Scarers' to perform inside our attractions.

Whilst our audiences roam the site and queue for one of our 4 terrifying, creature inhabited scares, we need an act that can amuse and entertain the crowds and be able to gather people together for impromptu performances or creepy story telling. The work is based outdoors but there is a sheltered area in which to perform. It goes without saying that warm costume will be a necessity!

If you have a set routine which you think would be suitable for our Halloween themed event please do inform us and if we can use it then by all means we will.
If you don’t have a Halloween themed act but feel you are capable of carrying such a role, of performing a ghost story capable of chilling the very bones of our audiences, it can be arranged in co-operation with our resident director to put something together.
We are looking for enthusiastic, outgoing and reliable performers who want to work with a brilliant team and get a kick out of thrilling audiences in an up close and personal style.

The dates you will be needed are:
16th, 18th, 19th, 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 29th, 30th, 31st Oct, 1st and 2nd Nov between 5pm-11pm.

There is an audition for the 'Story Teller' role on 10th September.

'Scarer’ role
The role of ‘Scarer’ is quite different to that of the Story Teller. Most of these roles have a small performance area either within one of the mazes or in the Field of Screams. Though you do get short breaks in between the groups of audience passing through it is a high intensity role in which you will be jumping out at audience members, be in close proximity to the audiences personal space and be, to a certain extent, quite repetitive (though of course you can play around with your performance).
Within our themed scares our actors need to be focused, energetic and most of all terrifying! Whether they are a jump out and scare character or a creepy awkward moving creature, each role needs the same performance standard as the others.

The attractions do involve strobe lighting, smoke and sound FX.

If accommodation is an issue for you, please let us know and we can discuss further options.
