‘Knowledge 4 The Carnage’ Haunter’s Workshop set

The Trail of Screams will host “Knowledge 4 The Carnage” Haunter’s Workshop and Seminar from 2-9 p.m., Sunday, July 23, at YMCA Camp Winnebago, 5804 N. Main St., Rockford.

“Knowledge 4 The Carnage” will offer a series of free seminars and workshops for haunted attraction actors, owners/operators and anyone interested in attending.

Seminar topics will include makeup techniques, interactive acting, character development, scare techniques, hands-on demonstrations and the “Monster Idol Gruesome Ghoul© Makeup Competition!” sponsored by the Trail of Screams. Dinner will be offered for a minimal fee.

K4tC has been hosted, organized and facilitated by various haunt owners and actors throughout Illinois and Wisconsin since 2005, and is a collaborative effort that exemplifies the power of what can be done when various attractions work together, share their knowledge and develop their craft.

Celebrity judges for the “Monster Idol Gruesome Ghoul” are being sought. Teams will compete to create the most gory, gruesome, gut-wrenching ghoul! If you are interested in participating, call 965-6772 or e-mail trailofscreams@aol.com by July 19.
