Have you dreamed of working in a haunted house? Does the thought of running around in a terrifying costume and literally scaring the crap out of people appeal to you? Here’s your chance to make your dreams come true.

On Saturday, August 27, and Sunday, August 28, Pontiac’s Erebus Haunted Attraction will host open casting calls. The event will take place from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Erebus, located at 18 South Perry Street in Pontiac. If you can’t make it this weekend, there will be another casting call on Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11, also from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Erebus Haunted Attraction was the previous Guinness Book of World Records holder for being the largest walk-through haunted attraction. For 17 years, Erebus has been scaring the living daylights out of Michiganders. The venue will open its doors for the 2016 season on Friday, September 23.

To audition and apply, you must

  • Be at least 18 years old and have a valid state ID
  • Have reliable transportation
  • Be willing and able to stand for long periods of time

If you’re cast, you get to pick the days that you want to work.

Audition tip: Costumes and make-up aren’t required, but they are encouraged. So hit the costume shops with a friend and start practicing your growls, screams, laughs, and cackles.
