Auditions for ‘Scream Team’ set for Sept. 9, 13, 15

Staff Report

For one month of pure terror, scare the living daylights out of people as the most gruesome, horrible and disgusting creatures at the 2012 Screamatorium or Fear Asylum Haunted House, opening Oct. 5.

All actors chosen for the 2012 “Scream Team” will learn what it takes to develop a character that scares, how to scream at the top of your lungs without blowing out your vocal cords and how to create gruesome, gory special effects makeup.

While you’re making everyone SCREAM until their throat bleeds, you’ll be gaining some great performance experience at two of northern Illinois’ most terrifying haunted events.

Auditions are open to anyone 16 years of age or older. Auditions are approximately 30-45 minutes, and you only need to attend one of the dates listed below.
