Outgoing, charismatic participants wanted to embody the characters at our scare attractions. From unhinged and crazed manor staff to deviant clown folk, our roles offer you the chance to panic and terrorise those who dare to visit.

Previous experience and/ or ability in improvisational theatre is preferred, no experience is required as full training will be given to the right candidates.

As part of our team of Scare Actors at Fearfest, you can expect to:

  • Work in a variety of environments including strobes, smoke, darkness, indoors and outdoors in all types of weather.
  • Wear masks, prosthetics, theatrical make up and more.
  • Be available for ALL specified nights including training nights.

You need to consider the following:

  • Are you willing to provide 100% commitment to the position for the specified nights/times and training days?
  • Are you willing to work in dark, smoky and potentially claustrophic conditions?
  • Are you willing to wear relevant costume props i.e masks or face prosthetics etc?
  • Are you fit and versatile enough to work for long periods in a dynamic scare actor role?
  • Actors must attend all nights of FearFest and payment for all nights will be made on November 2nd after FearFest finishes.

We are looking for people who are energetic, confident ,committed and those  not afraid to challenge themselves and put themselves out there.

We need actors who will enjoy terrorising innocent visitors who come to be scared. The more terrorising and intimidating you are the better.

Also, being a team player is essential and being able to work well with others. Everyone will be an equal contributing member of a close knit team. Most roles will be high energy roles, with little time between scares which will make it seem more like fun and less like work for you as a scare actor.


There is no need to dress up for auditions, but you may do so if you wish.

At the auditions, there will be a group briefing and then you will be given the opportunity to scare us and maybe read from a short piece of script.

Seasonal only, for various dates in October 2017.

We need people who are enthusiastic and fun.
