Terror Behind the Walls (TBTW) is one of the top-ranked haunted houses in the nation, so of course we want top-notch actors entertaining our visitors!
Actors and actresses work in and around the six haunted attractions that comprise TBTW. These include Lock Down, Machine Shop, Blood Yard, Infirmary, Quarantine: 4D, Break Out, the Zombie SWAT Dance Team, The Speakeasy, Bloodline, Roamers, Line Beasts, and the Street Team that entertains visitors outside penitentiary walls before they enter the property.
Interested actors and actresses must attend a group audition where they’ll get a chance to show off their scaring skills! No experience required; however, acting roles require a very high level of energy, stamina, and positive attitude.
Positions will be filled on a first-come, first-considered basis – meaning that you have a better chance of getting a role by attending an earlier audition. Auditions and interviews run RAIN OR SHINE.
All auditions are held from 6:00 to 7:00 pm at Eastern State Penitentiary. You do not need to make an appointment.

Applicants with special talents (stilt walking, superhuman tricks, break dancing, the ability to make strange noises, willingness to change your appearance, immersive theater experience, etc.) should inform hiring managers of those particular talents at the audition session.
