Overall appearance (make-up, costume, props)
Verbal performance
Improvisational interactive ability (how you interact/entertain our guests)

Go to the MidwestHauntersConvention.com for more information.

Interested parties should contact Jeff Glatzer at jdglatzer@cox.net

If we could get him there, my money is on........Jim Warfield!

I bet he would have more actual "Haunt Hours" in than anyone in this industry.

I think I had one year where I did about 60 days counting Haunt (about 38 nights), cons, press and photo shoots. Jim does about 200 + nights a year, every year!

There is an elite class of interactive haunt actor no doubt, but he is in a wacked out category all by himself!

LOL! I was pretty sure you wouldn't miss this opportunity. :)

I think you might be on the money about that! What a wonderful start to MHC that would be.

I, and the rest of the Scabs, are looking forward to seeing the talent that comes out to show off their best!!!

That came off a bit pointed.
What reasons do you have to think that the Scab5 would be unfair in our judging?

This is about encouraging excellence in improv acting in the haunted attraction industry. It is not about what group you belong to or, frankly, how "hardcore" you are. This competition is about recognizing creativity, originality and the ability to think on one's feet and bringing it out in all the actors, win or lose.
