NON-EQUITY CONTRACT (PAID - 18+ ONLY)
PLAY A PART IN ONE OF OUR SUCCESSFUL IMMERSIVE SHOWS!!
Seeking actors of all races, genders, ethnic backgrounds, professions, religions, sexual orientations and ages (18+) to fill roles in our immersive horror plays. All roles are gender and race neutral. All actors are PAID. We believe that our actors are THE most important part of the success of our shows and are paid accordingly including 2.5% of ticket sales, comp tickets for family and discounted tickets for friends. All actors are paid equally for their participation regardless of role. It's a team effort!
This is an immersive theatre show. A show starts every 20 minutes and lasts about an hour as the audience progresses through a series of rooms encountering actors and moving along the story line. Most roles have 2-5 minutes of script and must be able to improvise to interact with guests for approximately 10 minutes. Depending on role, there may be stairs, crawling and/or climbing. This is so much more than jumping out and yelling "BOO"! This is the opportunity to perform up close and personal with the audience.
In an effort to keep our audition process as safe as possible during these uncertain times, we've decided to hold scheduled auditions to keep the number of people gathered at IHS to a minimum. The following dates and times are available for scheduled auditions. Be prepared to cold read and improvise. Wear comfortable clothing. A movement audition is necessary for some roles. Please bring your resume and head shot!
