the role


So what actually is the role?

Cursed is rapidly becoming one of the UK’s top Halloween events, and we are looking for actors, ghouls, monsters, creeps and freaks to volunteer to populate our interactive scare-zones to help terrify the people of Essex.

You do not need any previous experience, acting training or anything like that- just a good attitude and a willingness to learn. As a scare-actor you will be a part of a close-knit team working to a very strict and gruelling schedule in what can be, in all honesty, pretty nasty conditions. It will probably be a bit wet, it will probably be a bit muddy, and it will almost definitely be very cold. BUT- it will be fun, it will be exciting and it will an experience like nothing you have ever done before.

For the successful applicants, we will provide full performance and make-up training, supply costumes and make sure you have a fun and safe environment to work in. On average, a group of roughly 10 guests will start their journey through Cursed every 2 minutes, and as they make their way through the themed areas of the park, it is the job of the actors to ensure that the stories, characters and most importantly the scares are delivered as the director instructs. It is very full-on and requires a lot of dedication and hard-work, but it is the most fun you can have rolling in mud in the middle of a field covered in fake blood- and that really is the truth!
