How Realistic Can You Be?
Does it matter?
Realistic on what level? As a character or do you get to blurr the line and seem to be a real person, thereby being even scarier when you get mentally off-center?
Do customers ever ask you or other actors if you have ever been trained as an "actor"?
Do you get enough time in your haunted venue to act the way that you would want to act, as far as time or the best situational opportunitys?
"Are you a trained actor?"
"Do I look like I got run over by a train!?"
Do you see the edge of my training pants sticking above my big-person pants?

I just decided I don't like the word "Trained" anymore.
Why should I tie myself , then follow some huffing and puffing whistle -blowing full of hot air blowhard?
"Choo, choo, choo, spit, swallow!
Belch! Phartt! Away we go! Follow me! Suck my poisons!
