A Collaborative Educational Opportunity for Current and Potential Cast Members

The producers of “Indiana’s Scariest Haunted House” are planning a day of education in the art of haunted attraction acting and makeup to be held at the Fear Fair Haunted Attraction on August 6th, 2011 from Noon until 6:00pm. A faculty of expert actors and makeup artists plan to present a fast paced schedule of classroom style instruction, practical exercises and demonstrations.

“We have always held a casting call for new cast members in later summer/early fall,” said Fear Fair Director, Brett Hays. “This year, we thought it was time to step things up a notch though. We are bringing together some of the most talented actors and makeup artists in the haunted attraction industry to provide a once in a lifetime opportunity for our current cast to improve their skill levels and for potential cast members to get an intensive exposure to the world of haunted attractions” said Hays.

The Faculty for Fear Camp is a veritable who’s who of haunted attraction acting and makeup design. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the likes of Katie Lane, a nationally touring actress, costume designer, makeup artist and part of the Rotting Flesh Radio Casket Crew. Katie will offer instruction on acting, makeup and costuming.

Fear Camp is collaboration in the truest sense as multiple haunted attractions will be represented among the instructors. Bud Stross, co-owner of The Dent Schoolhouse, will provide instruction on acting and makeup. Bud is one half of the comedic queue line duo of Jasper and Jynx. The killer clown couple has found renown on Youtube, at the Dent haunted attraction and various haunted attraction industry events. Bud is currently providing makeup for a major film production.

Tad Dezarn, Teddy Summers and Lucian Tomes, Jr. of Baxter Avenue Morgue will also be providing instruction. Baxter Avenue Morgue is one of the longest running haunted houses in the nation and has long been known for excellence in acting.

Lucian Tomes, Jr, who plays the iconic Warren Vanderdark at the Baxter Avenue Morgue has over 35 years of experience in haunted attraction acting.

Aspiring haunt actresses will receive instruction from up and coming Scream Queen, Kitsie Duncan. Kitsie is the star of the upcoming indie horror film, Mothers Blood and was crowned 2010 Famous Monsters of Filmland Scream Queen.

The days’ fast paced schedule of instruction will be followed by a cook out and party. Anyone who has ever considered acting in a haunted attraction, doing makeup in the haunt industry, or who just wants to learn to scare the bejezus out people cannot afford to miss Fear Camp.

There is absolutely no charge to attend Fear Camp, but advance registration is required and only limited spaces are available.

Please include your name, gender and age in the email. Fear Camp is only open to those 16 years of age and up. Registration is open to both current and prospective Fear Fair cast and crew members.
