Do you think you have what it takes to be a scary monster? Knott’s Scary Farm (a/k/a Knotts Berry Farm, Buena Park, California) is seeking talented actors to fill V.I.M. (Very Important Monster) positions at its 42nd annual Halloween Haunt.
Tomorrow, on August 14, 2014, Knott’s will be casting for scary male & female actors who have improvisational skills to perform in mini-shows and vignettes during Haunt. The Park considers stunt or tumbling skills a plus, but these skills are not necessary for casting. Auditions will be held tomorrow, August 14, 2014 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please see the entire job posting for complete information. (Update: Sorry, this link has expired.)
Additionally, Knott’s is looking for some good ghouls to haunt their “delightfully scary Terror-tory!” Knotts monsters get to jump, lunge, crawl, growl, groan and grunt to add to the scary atmosphere. The advertisement does not mention a particular hiring date, but hiring will likely close soon. Again, please see the entire job posting for complete information.

See you in the fog!
The story of how Knott’s Berry Farm’s annual Halloween Haunt became the world’s largest and scariest Halloween party is told in the hauntingly beautiful book “Knott’s Halloween Haunt – A Picture History” by Ted Dougherty, with a foreword by Neil Patrick Harris. Through a fascinating display of over 300 archival photographs and meticulously-researched details, Dougherty shows how what was a three-day affair in 1973 became a “Haunt”ing legacy.
If your library consists of actual, physical books – you know, hardbacks and paperbacks – you’ll want to order “Knott’s Halloween Haunt – A Picture History” by Ted Dougherty, with a foreword by Neil Patrick Harris, in book form from Amazon.com. Sorry, this book is not available in a digital (Kindle) edition. Sorry, this book is not available in an audiobook (Audible) edition. – Candy
