The workshop is THIS WEEKEND if anyone wants to come out and participate.  We've received some good responses so far and are looking to eventually turn this into a "Gathering of the Haunters" networking event over the next few years.

Possible master classes on makeup, costuming, make and takes, and more are already in the works, but we need a good initial turnout to make it happen.  Please let me know if you're coming out.  Even if you don't work for a haunt, there will be plenty of owners attending who just might be hiring.  If nothing else, its a great opportunity to talk all things Halloween and haunted houses.

Hope to see a few of you there...

Holy cow.  I want to thank the actors who represented at least 5 haunts in NC/SC for coming out and learning.  You totally rocked.  Next year we plan on growing to include a possible makeup class for those interested in learning the fine art of horror makeup.  If you are a makeup artist who might be interested in helping, let me know...
