Actors and Volunteers needed Nightmare on Main 2022
Nightmare on Main, 2022, will be held at the Connecticut Eastern Railroad Museum in Willimantic, which is a new location for the event. Nightmare On Main is a theatrical tour event, held during October, where visitors are guided passed several staged scenes and actors portray historical characters telling some creepy, haunting stories based on real history. The 2022 theme is “Ghost Town – Shadows of the Past. “

Actors are needed to join our cast of characters. Some parts have scripted speaking parts and some are non-speaking ‘crowd.’ The scenes will depict 19th century historical events in Ghost Towns. The tour includes sites such as the old church, black smith shop, saloon and the jail where actors portray card sharks, grave diggers, saloon girls and more. Actors must commit to all of the events plus a few rehearsals and work sessions. Volunteers are also needed for backstage jobs, parking cars and more.

The event runs on October 8, 9, 14, 15, 23 with a family event on Oct. 22. Ghost Town Tours are rain or shine and will start every twenty minutes between 7:00 to 9:30 p.m. The event is moderately scary, creepy but not horror or bloody, and appropriate for ages 10+.
