If you love to hide and scare the ever-living bejesus out of people, Six Flags might want to have a chat with you.
The amusement park is holding auditions for “scare actors” to staff its annual Fright Fest event around the Halloween season to dress as zombies and monsters and such.
Yes, if selected, you can add to your resume the job title of “scary character,” which is how it is listed on the job posting.
The first casting call on the schedule is Aug. 15 from 4-8 p.m., then Aug. 20 from 1-5 p.m. and finally Aug. 22 from 4-8 p.m. The auditions won’t be held at the park but instead will be at 7110 Oak Ridge Pkwy. in Austell.
Gene Petriello, spokesman for the Cobb County amusement park, said they are looking to fill about 200 positions but could hire more people depending on need.
He said the starting pay would be $8 an hour, possibly higher depending on experience.
Those interested must be able to work the last two weekends of September and all weekends in October, including Friday evenings.
Headshots and resumes are appreciated but not required, Six Flags said. Look to the job posting for age requirements when you apply online before attending the casting call — and be sure you’re applying for the Georgia park.
If you don’t have acting chops, they’re also looking for folks to be a “character escort.”
Fright Fest, which runs from Sept. 23 through Oct. 31 on select nights, will feature four “blood-curdling scare zones” and four “new terrifying haunted mazes/attractions,” Six Flags said.
