Universal Orlando Holding Auditions for Halloween Horror Nights

There seems to be some good news in the way of fall entertainment at Universal Orlando Resort! This year Halloween Horror Nights are returning! Not only are they returning, they are looking for scare actors for the ticketed event!

The resort is currently looking for haunted house scare actors and street performers. To fill the positions, Universal is holding virtual auditions. Those interested in becoming a scare actor are asked to submit a video as well as a headshot, resume and full-length photo.

In a posting on the audition website, Universal said it’s seeking candidates with “slender to athletic” builds in various height ranges.

Previous experience is not required, according to the posting.

The deadline to make video submission is July 20.

Halloween Horror Nights is set to run select nights September 10 through November 1.

While there is no word on the houses or themes for this year’s Horror Nights, the auditions are exciting, to say the least! This means there are plans to go ahead with the fall festivities.

Universal Orlando reopened its theme parks in early June with a number of new health and safety measures, including mandatory face masks, temperature checks and reduced capacity. Universal hasn’t said what measures will be in place for Halloween Horror Nights, but it has added a notice on the event’s website.

“Universal will continue to follow CDC guidelines and the recommendations of local health and safety official for its operation of Halloween Horror Nights this fall,” the notice read. “More details will be shared closer to the event’s debut.“
