I have a question for the pro haunt actors here
I searched for advice about this. Really I did.
To the people here who work as actors in pro haunts, what are some things you'd like to see in a haunt actor training course. I'm trying to build a good powerpoint presentation for next year. I'll be training approximately 25-30 actors, as well as 6 section leaders who will be in charge of 2-3 scenes and their actors. What I'm looking for is things I can use like safety procedures, acting tips, what to do in case a patron needs to be taken out of the haunt, etc. You get the idea. I have to build two presentations, one for regular actors and one for section leaders. A lot of the material can be put in both courses, just to make sure that the section leaders get it.
I would usually not ask for help on something like this, but I haven't acted full time in 4 years, and I'm sure there are things I am forgetting. Any help is appreciated.
As far as the section leaders, I'll also have to train them on basic personnel management, such as making sure people get breaks, return in a timely fashion, don't whale on patrons, or get wild and bust up props/ scenery. Also fire safety, etc.
