Terror Behind the Walls is now holding auditions for zombies

We all have to pay our tuition bills somehow

Thinking about getting a job during the fall semester? Well, look no further because Eastern State Penitentiary’s “Terror Behind the Walls” is looking to fill over 300 positions for its 2017 fall season, including actors, makeup artists, event staff and more.

According to the TBTW website, no acting experience is needed to become a zombie, but you must be able to “scare and entertain” the guests in the attraction and be at least 18 years old.

Positions will be filled on a first-come, first-considered basis, which means auditioning earlier will give you a better chance of landing a role.

Other open positions include the following:

Box Office: Sells tickets to customers at the Box office and answers the information phone line

Retail: Sells “Terror Behind the Walls” official merchandise

Guest Services: Helps answer guests’ questions, escorts scared guests out of the attraction

Ghost Bus Parking Lot Attendants: Works at the parking garage at the Philadelphia zoo, answers guests’ questions, hands out information sheets, and helps guests board and exit the buses

Line Staff: Works near the entrance helping guests find their designated line, scans their tickets, and answers any questions they may have

Auditions and interviews will be held on August 9th, 10th, 17th,  and 24th between 6-7 p.m. at Eastern State Penitentiary, 2027 Fairmount Ave.

Those interested in any of the roles above must fill out an application, which can be found on the official TBTW website.
