2021 Returning Cast Packet & Bio Form
This information packet is designed to answer any questions you may have. Please read thoroughly since some things have changed since last season.

We also need a new Bio Sheet completed so we can have your most recent information on file. Even if you filled one out last year, PLEASE fill it out again, so it goes into my current database with your mailing address, email address, etc.

FAQs - Please read the following information before completing the Bio Form. There are some updates since last year.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS NOTICE
If you have any underlying conditions like asthma, heart conditions, etc. Or if you do not feel you are physically fit, we ask that you plan to skip joining the horde this season. We do not want to risk your health.

WHAT TIME COMMITMENT IS EXPECTED?

We will be open every Friday and Saturday in October. In addition we will have a practice night and dress rehearsal night that is required for all cast members. You will be asked to arrive around 6:30 (or before) on any night we are open.
--- Practice nights: Sept 17-18 (everyone must attend one, date determined by your scene)
--- Dress Rehearsal: Sept 24-25 (everyone must attend one, date determined by your scene)
--- Open Nights: Oct 1-2, 8-9, 15-16, 22-23, 29-30


IF I'M IN A PAID POSITION, HOW DOES THE PAY GET CALCULATED?

We will pay based on the operation hours of the event, starting when we open that night. You will not receive payment for any practice or costume/makeup time. If we close early or cannot open due to inclement weather, you will be paid for the time we were open that night, if applicable. Payment is only based on the times we are entertaining our customers for the nights you are present. In order to be paid, you must work ALL nights that you list below.

WHEN WILL I RECEIVE THE MONEY I EARN?

If you are in a paid position, we will mail checks on November 10th, if you have worked all nights as agreed. Please make sure we have your correct name and mailing address (you will fill that in below).

CAN I BRING A FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER TO HELP ME ON THE NIGHT(S) I WORK?

No. We can only have cast members who have gone through the steps like you have to fill out a questionnaire and earn an assigned role.

WILL ZF PROVIDE MY COSTUME?

We will have some costumes, but you may prefer to find your own. We will discuss this with you individually, depending on the role you are given. Work boots of some sort would be best since you will be walking in woods. No white tennis shoes are allowed. If you do not have these items, I would suggest checking the local thrift stores.

Many roles require a Halloween mask to be worn, so please be prepared to wear one if your position requires one. If a mask is required, ZF will provide it for you.

WHAT ARE SOME IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER?

1. Actors should never talk on or use their phone where a customer can see you. The glow of the cell phone can be seen far away. We may ask you to leave if you are seen talking on your cell phone while in a scene.
2. Stay in character at all times, even going to and from the bathroom or actor camp.
3. NEVER touch or chase the customers. The trail is a natural walking trail and therefore has many inherent dangers. We want the customers walking slowly at all times.
4. October temperatures vary, but you should expect some cold nights. Dress in layers.
5. We recommend bringing a bottle of water, a flashlight, and small snack each night.

Required
Please tell us about the type role you would like for the coming season *
Please tell us a little bit about your choice above. What type role do you prefer and why? (we can't guarantee any specific role, but this helps us know where you feel most comfortable) *
We need staff who can be active in the scenes and move around easily. A good rule of thumb is this question - Can you walk 3/4 of a mile without an issue? That is the length of the trail, so you may need to walk that distance during a night of operation. How physically fit would you rate yourself? *

Do you have any medical conditions we need to know about including but not limited to asthma, heart condition, pregnancy, respiratory issues, or prone to seizures. This is a physical work environment and we want to keep our cast members safe. *
