The Haunted Basement will be holding auditions for the core performing company of the 13th edition of its signature immersive horror theatre production running September 26th - November 2nd, 2019.
We are seeking a diverse company of performers with a host of different skills and backgrounds. Experience in performance art and immersive theatre is highly desirable, but not ultimately necessary. Performers of color, femme/non-binary, and those that are part of the disability community are encouraged to audition. You must be over 18 to act with us.
Group auditions will be held on the following dates and times listed here. Auditioners will only need to attend one of the six audition sessions. If you are late to your audition session, we will ask you to wait until the next session.
We may add a session on Sunday, August 18th if there is interest. If you would prefer that, please email [email protected]
All auditions will take place at the old Hereberger's space, at the Rosedale Center. Map to the space can be found HERE.
Please bring a headshot and resume (if you have them. If you don't, that's totally fine too), come dressed for movement, and plan on staying for the entire hour-long audition session. Also, please bring your conflicts for the months of September through November.
The production schedule is as follows:
- Rehearsals: September 1 - 19 (TBA on required commitment)
- Dress Rehearsals: September 23 & 24th (1 required)
- Previews: September 26, 28 (1 required. This is considered a performance)
- Full company meeting: Wednesday, October 2nd, 7pm (This is required)
- Opening Night: Thursday, October 3

Performances will be Thursdays through Sundays in the evening, Saturday afternoons, and an added performance on Wednesday, October 30th.
These roles are paid positions. You will be paid a flat fee per performance, to be paid bi-weekly. We are requiring 15 performances to be a paid actor. If not cast, we encourage you to come volunteer.
