Despite the fact that the coronavirus is STILL a thing and public gatherings are a no-no and cases have been rising in the United States again, Universal Studios is going ahead with Halloween Horror Night and there are casting calls out for scare actors.
As a horror fanatic who wants people to live through this time in history I'm torn on this. I LOVE Halloween Horror Nights but this seems like a bad idea. Still, I am curious as to what the new Scare Zones would be. They always produce incredible events and I'm sure 2020 has enough inspiration for great horror scenes.
Need a job for the season? Well, they're doing virtual audtions for scare actors and street performers. All you gotta do is send a video, a headshot, and a resume here . According to their website, they're looking for “slender to athletic” builds in various height ranges. No previous experience required, so you can get in on the ground floor scaring people amidst a pandemic.
They have not announced the theme for this year, but they've done scare zones for everything from Halloween, Stranger Things, The Purge, Friday the 13th, and others.
Universal Orlando reopened its theme parks in early June with a number of new health and safety measures, including mandatory face masks, temperature checks and reduced capacity. Universal hasn't said what measures will be in place for Halloween Horror Nights, but it added a notice on the event's website.
“Universal will continue to follow CDC guidelines and the recommendations of local health and safety officials for its operation of Halloween Horror Nights this fall," the notice reads. "More details will be shared closer to the event’s debut.“
