- 4 Volunteers for the 2nd Week of October – The final stop of The Nightmare Tour is the undeveloped parcel behind The Strand Theater. We are looking for help to design and build a series of ‘gags’ that will be used to startle the patrons as the Ghost of The Strand is revealed. Volunteers should have mechanical knowledge and skills to design and build these gags, which usually require electricity and/or hydraulic components that can be easily discharged using a remote control or footpad.
4 – 6 Volunteers for the 2nd or 3rd week of October – Build and assemble a series of 4’ x 8’ stage platforms to be used for the stage of the Fright Fest Tent. 20’ x 40’ Tent will already be in place. Stage will have to be leveled using 4’ x 4’ posts of varying heights attached to the stage. Volunteers should have basic construction knowledge and skills and necessary tools to complete
the stage assembly.
10 or more Volunteers the final two Friday and Saturday evenings in October – Zombies and ghouls are employed to
make the Nightmare Tour stops a little more 'lively'. During two stops on the tour, zombies lumber toward the trolley and interact with the riders to give an added thrill. Volunteers should be outgoing, have a sense of humor about the Halloween season and enjoy interacting with others. Make-up and applicators provided but access to old clothes or costumes is desirable.
1 Volunteer – Sound Technician for the final
two Friday and Saturday evenings in October - To set up and maintain The Strand’s portable PA System used when live bands perform under the Fright Fest Tent.
1 Volunteer – final
two Friday and Saturday evenings in October
– to portray the fictitious Ghost of the Strand. Since we won’t know what the Ghost will be until the contest winner is announced
in early October (man, woman, young, old, etc), the only requirement that we can offer at this time is to be outgoing and energetic, and be comfortable interacting with others in an improvisational manner. The ghost’s story is told, the ghost jumps out at the tourists, then interacts with them before disappearing into the night.
1 Volunteer – final two Friday and Saturday evenings in October
– to be The Tour Guide. The Tour Guide is a key role on The Nightmare Tour. S/he rides along with the passenger and tells all of the stories during the tour and disembarks with the passengers at certain stops to share the stories and move everyone along. Volunteer must be a good storyteller and be comfortable interacting with the general public. The ability to operate ‘off the cuff’ and with good humor is key. The Tour Guide will have to learn the basic elements of all of the ghost stories for the 45 minute tour.
It is important to stress that it does NOT have to be the same volunteers
each and every time. Substitutions are perfectly fine as long as the skill sets outlined in each area above can be met. We PREFER The Strand Ghost be the same person, but it isn’t necessary. And, because The Tour Guide must know and be able to share all of the ghost stories on The Nightmare Tour, this role requires a greater time commitment in terms of preparation.
