Jackson, NJ – July 15, 2014 – More than 200 scare actors, trained dancers, variety performers and technicians are needed to fill a variety of zombie roles and support positions during this fall’s annual Fright Fest celebration at Six Flags Great Adventure.
Six Flags seeks individuals with a passion for Halloween and scaring. The park’s casting team is looking for nearly a dozen trained dancers for the popular Dead Man’s Party and Ghoulmaster’s Ghosts stage shows, more than 150 scare actors for the park’s haunted midways and creepy terror trails, variety performers for street shows, and technicians to work behind the scenes to create the ambience of Fright Fest through special effects, lighting and sound.
No prior acting or scare experience is necessary to fill the acting roles. Auditions include several fun acting exercises in a group setting. Dancers must be ready to showcase their inner zombie and have dance training in jazz and hip hop. They will learn several dance combinations during the audition with professional dancer/choreographer and Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance finalist Ashle Dawson. No preparation is required for either set of auditions, but headshots and resumes are welcome. Variety performers should arrive ready to showcase their talents, such as magic, juggling, stilt walking, etc.
Applicants interested in technician positions should complete the pre-employment application online and arrange an in-person interview.
