August 01, 2018 - 10:30 am

(WWJ) Think your scream beats all other screams? That your dastardardly scare plan will send people home for a tossing and turning session of nightmares?

Are you scary enough to make someone wet their pants?

Boo: You're in luck.

Erebus has a Boo School where you can learn how to scare people, and then get paid to do it.

If you're really good at it, they'll pay a $20 bonus every time an employee makes a customer wet their pants. And, they’re looking to hire 250 people.

Erebus Haunted Attraction in Pontiac is kicking off its 19th season with an open casting call to find 250 of the area’s scariest people.

Auditions are being held Thursday, August 16 and Friday, August 17 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each day; and on Saturday, August 18 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Auditions will be held at the Erebus Escape Room Complex located at 34 Oakland Avenue in Pontiac, Michigan.

Erebus opens for the 2018 haunt season on September 21st and 22nd and September 28th and 29th, 2018. October dates are October 4–7; October 11–14; October 17–31 and will be open through November 2nd and 3rd.

While it is not a requirement to dress up in your scariest garb for the audition, it is absolutely encouraged. To audition and apply, you must:

            ●  Be at least 18 years old to apply and have valid state ID

            ●  Have reliable transportation

            ●  Be willing and able to stand for long periods of time

            ●  Some jobs require more strength than others

            ●  You pick the days you want to work

            ●  Costumes and make-up not required, but encouraged

Erebus 4-Story Haunted Attraction consistently ranks as one of the world’s scariest haunts. As Michigan’s largest haunted attraction and former holder of the Guinness World Record for largest walk-through haunted house from 2005 through 2009, owners Edward and James Terebus have spent three and a half decades "plotting terror that assaults all five of your mortal senses."

Named after the Greek god of primordial darkness, Erebus is a four-story playground for your mind.
