Job Description

This will be like no other job you have ever had. It takes loads of energy, willingness to learn, be a team player and not be a complete wus about being cold, wet or outdoors. If you are doing this for the money then you are doing it for the wrong reasons. You must have an appreciation for theatre, a love for Halloween or you just have a strong desire to scare the crap out of complete strangers. Acting is at the heart of everything we do so if you have experience then you already have some of the tools we look for. If not, then you need to be willing to learn because being apart of Fright Nights will be one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of your life.


Fright Nights at Jacobson Park operates Friday-Sunday in October, opens nightly at 7:30, closes at 10:00pm on Sunday and midnight on Friday and Saturday. A typical season is 17-25 days and we are only looking to recruit those that can commit to attending 95% of our open days. You also must fill out our online application (link is at bottom of page) and attend one of our auditions.


Payment varies between different positions but a typical worker or scare actor receives around $500 for a season.


All auditions will take place at the Camp Kearney building at Jacobson Park, 4001 Athens Boonesboro Road. You must attend one of the following audition times in order to be considered for a position.

Beyond the public recognition, Fright Nights is a lifestyle. We often use the phrase “Fright Nights Family” because it is a large wacky family. We support each other and are there for each other year round. When you make it on the team you will instantly make 200 friends who are ready and willing to help you with anything you have going on in your life.
