DARK emerges from Edmonton’s River Valley to transform Fort Edmonton Park into a large-scale haunted attraction.

Thrill-seekers that dare to enter DARK will experience an adrenaline-pumping night of horrors complete with haunted mazes, sinister scare zones, and live entertainment. All will have a ghastly good time watching their friends face their fears.

Do you want to be a part of the action?
As a Scare Actor, you will be the one lurking in the shadows to frighten and delight guests in one of our Haunts or Scare Zones. As a member of our Scare Team, you will be expected to stay in character, wear assigned costumes and makeup, follow specific care instructions, and interact with guests and other team members in a professional manner.
All Scare Actor positions are paid $15 hourly.

Who are we looking for?
No prior acting experience necessary! We are looking for a wide variety of individuals to fill specific roles in our Haunts.
People aged 15 years of age* and older with a wide variety of skills and experiences are welcome to audition. Improv or acting experience is beneficial but not required. A positive team-oriented attitude is a must as haunting is a team sport!
