If you are auditioning for a haunter’s position:
We hire haunters to scare in the corn maze, along the railroad track in the woods and for the haunted house. You must audition for haunter positions. You do not need to bring anything with you. When you arrive, you will be asked to fill out an availability calendar and application forms. You do not have to prepare a monologue. Just come, have fun and give us your best scream! Experience preferred but not necessary. Employees rehired from prior years will be given preference as to positions.
