Want to Act at Eleventh Hour?
THANK YOU for your interest in being part of Eleventh Hour Haunted House this year!
We will begin setup mid-August, and be there most days from 10am until late.
We'll have our actor meetings, including auditions and actor training for paid spots and key roles on:
Saturday, August 31 at 3pm
The Eleventh Hour Haunted House has been voted "#1 Haunted House" and "#1 Halloween Event in IL" by the visitors of HauntedIllinois.com several times. It was also voted "Best Atmosphere" and "Best Overall Halloween Event" by the visitors of ChicagoHalloweenGuide.com this past year. 11th Hour is one of the Chicago Area's longest-standing haunted houses, in its' 15th year of fear. We're excited to have you join us for our biggest year yet, in our new all-indoor location, for a new season of October chills!
All those auditioning should be prepared to monologue and interact for 3-5 minutes. We encourage all actors to develop a character of their own that fits within the storyline of the haunt. For those who have not performed in a haunted house, this is the Olympics of acting, as you are on stage every 90 seconds for 3-4 hrs a night. At least one actor training session is required for paid positions.
This years' location will be 1940 George Street, Melrose Park, IL, and as always we will have both paid and volunteer actors and staff. All volunteers must be 18, OR if under 18, be 16 or older and have a signed permission slip from a parent or guardian.
Paid performers will receive a stipend of $20-$50 a night.
In order to be considered for a paid acting position you must be 18 and available most every night we're open. You must work Halloween and Friday and Saturday nights.
In order to be considered for the Volunteer of the year award you must complete at least 11 nights of the show as well as assist with set up and tear down.
All other volunteer prizes are available to those who complete at least 11 show nights.
Everyone is welcome to participate in setup, and keep in mind setup gives you an opportunity to learn more acting tricks, and get to know your fellow haunters, as well as a little about all aspects of the haunt. Besides we have fun doing it.
We look forward to another year of entertaining and scaring people silly, and hope you can join us! This year a portion of the proceeds will continue to benefit Shady Oaks Cerebral Palsy Camp, Unicef, Lions Club, and other charities.
Be sure to download, fill out, and bring the above actor paperwork. See you there!
