Casting a writer/performer to animate a 45-minute live Ghost Walk Tour. We are seeking an unforgettable spooky tour guide for our inaugural Halloween Ghost Walk in the Annex, Toronto, Canada.

Animator must be confident, charismatic, and with a penchant for improvisation and audience interaction. Seeking a candidate who will research and write their own family-appropriate tales of terror, in collaboration with our director and creative team during the process.

We are a dance company, creating a physically dynamic performance, but the candidate need not be a trained dancer. We seek a person who will genuinely enjoy this process and embrace being part of our company for the duration of the project.

The role requires a storyteller who can make a character send shivers up our spines. The performer will bring four unique locations to life along the route, transforming their voice/physicality as necessary. As part of the engagement, there will be one or two additional paid performance(s) among Bloor/Annex businesses during the lead-up to October 31st.

We welcome and encourage applications of any age, gender, and ethnicity.
