Q. Where are the Auditions?
Bridgeport Gore Grounds / Haunted Elementary located at:

Q. Do I need to attend more than one audition?
No, you only need to attend one of the scheduled Audition times. In the event that you are not able to make any of the dates, we may be able to make other arrangements. This is a very busy time for us and our time is limited.
Q. How old do you have to be to become an actor?
We ask that you be at least 18 years of age to be an actor at Bridgeport Gore Grounds / Haunted Elementary.
If you will be 16-17 during the Haunted House season, we do require that you have a parent or legal guardian sign your paperwork for approval.
If you are 15 you are able to act at Haunted Elementary with your parent or guardian. We currently have many parents that act with their children and have a lot of fun.
Q. What do I have to bring to an audition?
For an audition at Haunted Elementary, you will need your photo or school identification and general contact information. Instructions will be given for later needs.
NOTE: If you are under the age of 18, you will need a parent or legal guardian's signature on the paperwork before you can take any training courses.
Q How long do auditions take?
Auditions take about 25-35 minutes total. However, on audition days, you may be there longer to attend a short classe and a brief one-on-one interview prior to the audition.
Q. What is the audition process?
The Short Answer: We will explain to you our basic set design and character expectations and then give you an opportunity to show us your best interpretation.
When it's time for the auditions, you’ll sign in and fill out some brief paperwork. Then groups of 2-4 people will be taken back into the audition room to perform three basic types of scares.
We will show you the basic types of scares and then give you the opportunity to try them.
You will then be informed when call backs will happen. When you are done, you are free to ask any questions and we will do our best to answer them.
Q. What should I wear to the audition?
All we ask is that you wear black or dark comfortable clothing.
Q. Can I bring my own costume?
We prefer that anyone auditioning come in plain clothes and without "haunted" makeup. We already have all the costumes that fit this years theme. If you have a costume or character in mind, go ahead and bring it along to share.
Q. If I have taken any drama classes, would that help?
We have every kind of actor here at Haunted Elementary, from seasoned stage performers, to those who have never set foot on stage. Everything helps, but we welcome all levels of actors.
Q. How many days would I have to commit to become an actor?
To act at Haunted Elementary and get the full experience of our haunted house, we ask at least 3-5 days as an actor.
Q. Do I have to read a script or have a monologue prepared for auditions?
No prepared material is necessary.
Q. Does Haunted Elementary pay?
Acting at Haunted Elementary is considered a volunteer position, but it has a ton of perks. An incentive compensation plan is offered based on how often you attend. Plus we have great meals EVERY night along with nightly prizes and events all year long. We also offer a volunteer program for school.
Q. Is there a position available I can do that isn't about acting or scaring?
