Youve always known that you could scare children although admittedly, it usually happens when youre wearing yesterdays make-up, havent yet de-frizzed your mane, and left that hair-growing mole unattended for much too long. Harness that glorious gift today during an audition for Sugar Sand Parks Haunted House.
They should have their best screams, scary spooky eyes, stares, and unexpected shakes ready, explains the parks terror barometer, Stacee Cooney. But aside from being in touch with your menacing side, theres very little preparation needed for the improv-heavy audition; Cooney and her crew will lob ideas and situations your way, then you return them with your most bloodcurdling, horror-inspired response. (A tip: When getting into character, you might want to buffer your shrieks and seizing with a cowboy accent the haunted house is 1800s ghost town themed.)
This six-night gig is a great way to revisit Halloween as an adult and to release a lot of pent-up rage. Were looking to scar some people, a determined Cooney says, -- thats really our goal. Some parts are paid; some are volunteer. Auditions are at 5 p.m. Download audition form at www.sugarsandpark.org, or call 561-347-3901. Sugar Sand Park is located at 300 South Military Trail, Boca Raton.
