2024 Haunted Maze - Actor & Volunteer Availability Form

Carnival of Terror Large Logo.jpg

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS INFO VERY CAREFULLY!  Thank you for your interest in helping us scare!


There are roles for ages 10+. Roles are very limited for younger actors.  Most actors in our mazes are teens/adults.  


Some of the roles in this year's maze:  carnies, clowns, giant cockroach, trash heap creature, ticket seller, biker, dead Rhody court, mascot characters, creepy dolls, stilt walker, strobe light creatures, and more.   Some roles are already cast.  If you wish to be considered for a specific role, please write it in the comments section. 


IMPORTANT: Some costume pieces may be provided by us, but in general, you will be responsible for purchasing your own costume and it must meet our specifications for quality!  (No cheap or cheesy Halloween store looking costumes are permitted).  

1) Some maze characters will be required to wear extensive make-up, face coverings, and/or a latex mask. If you have sensitivity to latex or other issues with wearing special effects style make-up, please make sure to inform us. 

2) Actors are required to provide their own costumes - unless we specify otherwise.  Please let us know in the comments box if you have something that might work for a specific character.  Otherwise, you must be willing to purchase costume items for yourself AND YOU MUST GET THEM APPROVED BY US!  Approval can be done by photo (text/email) or in person.  

3) Actors are expected to be professional and remain in character at all times.  Anyone who breaks character may be asked to leave the maze, and will not be allowed to return.  We take this very seriously.  Our terrifying and professional actors are what make our maze exceptional.  

4) Calltime is generally one hour prior to "go" time with the exception of Oct. 25th (see below).   It's a good idea to bring some energy-building snacks and to eat dinner before arriving if possible.  Please bring a water bottle with a tightly fitting lid, labeled with your name.  There will be concessions on site, but actors may not go to public spaces in costume (once the maze opens).  

5) This year, we are doing an overnight load in due to FEC space limitations/booking conflicts.  This means we cannot do a normal dress rehearsal the night before the maze.  There will be a mandatory ALL CAST meeting on Friday, October 25th at 3:30 pm. During this meeting, you will be assigned your spot and you will be allowed to walk around to familiarize yourself with the maze.  This is a show night, so the maze will be open to the public at 6 pm.  If performing on the 25th, it's a good idea to arrive already in costume/make-up or be able to change quickly.  If not performing, you can learn your location/role and then you will be excused.

6) Actors will receive ONE FREE TICKET VOUCHER for the maze.  You may use it yourself (on a night you are not working) or give it to a friend.  Please note that our lines are often very long.  If there is a line at 9 pm, all patrons who have purchased tickets will be allowed to walk through.  Actors (including kids) may not leave until they are released.  Parents, please make sure you are aware that this may mean your child may not be done until after 9:30 pm or later if the line is really long.  

7)  Please review and read our Policies and Waivers.  All participants must check a box that they have read, understand, and agree to all policies and waivers, or they will not be allowed to participate.


8) Participation as an actor in the maze is AT YOUR OWN RISK.   Patrons are asked not to touch actors, but in working with the general public, these kinds of things are sometimes unavoidable.  We do everything in our power to keep our performers safe.  Parents, please consider signing up as an Adult Volunteer to help supervise your child and others.  


8) Submitting this form does NOT guarantee you a spot in the maze.  We are sorry, but we cannot cast everyone who wishes to participate.    You will be notified by email when casting is complete. 

Please ask if you have questions, prior to submitting this form.
