This indoor/outdoor haunted house experience is 100% volunteer produced, provides hundreds of hours of volunteer opportunities for local youth, and raises money for community charities. Thank you to all our volunteers who work so hard and have fun to make this happen – we couldn’t do it without you!
A HUGE special thank you to our SIXTY + volunteers who helped us ROCK Crypticon Seattle 2018! Be on the lookout for more Crypticon volunteer opportunities in 2019!

SCARE Donation Drive – July 21st
Save the date! On July 21st, Scare will be holding our THIRD annual donation drive at the Kent Value Village. Almost any donations are welcome, however there are a few exceptions; no electronics or appliances, they will accept small counter top appliances (ex. mixers, toasters etc.), and no furniture or mattresses however small furniture is OK (computer desks, chairs, coffee tables etc). Things like clothing, blankets, and jewelry earn the most money! The more donations we get, the more money that we will earn! If it’s easier or you know you will be busy on the 21st of July, please bring any donations you have to Nightmare's volunteer picnic coming up on June 10! We will gladly store your donations until the drive!
We will be participating in 2 parades this year. Renton River Days on July 28th and Issaquah Salmon Days Oct 6th. We encourage our actors to come out and march with us. Follow us on our SCARE FB group page for more info! Jeannie will be the lead for RRD, and Pugsley will be the lead on ISD. Stay tuned for a monster call.

Located at Beaver Lake Lodge – 12pm-2pm All volunteers with less than 2 years of service are required to attend 1 day of orientation. More info will come out in the summer newsletter.
Actor Training - October 6th and 7th - Beaver Lake Park
Actor training will be held from 11AM -3PM each day. There will not be a lunch break, and there are no food services in the park.

All actors with 3 years of acting (in our show) or less are required to attend at least 1 day of actor training. All other actors are strongly encouraged to attend. This is where you will find out about the roles we have available for 2018. Training will be set specific. Did I mention that ALL ACTORS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND If enough interest at that time, there may be advanced training available from 3:30 – 4:30 each day.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFO
Work parties will begin June 14th at the Kent shop every Thursday night starting at 5:00 pm (5pm too early? Contact Bobby directly or post in the Scare FB group if are interested in coming down later in the evening). It’s going to take a lot of work to build our 2018 Nightmare and we need YOUR help! There are all kinds of jobs from painting to fabrication. If you have time on a Thursday night, please come down to help. We have a big year planned, and it will definitely need a huge team effort to pull it off. We will add more work nights throughout the summer. Stay tuned to the SCARE productions volunteer group on Facebook to keep updated!
