Ghostwalk Auditions - Aug 6

The New Bern Historical Society is looking for a few good ghosts.  Whether you are a spirited novice or have lots of ghostly experience, the Historical Society wants you to portray historic characters in this year’s Ghostwalk.  

Ghostwalk brings to life noted personalities from New Bern’s past. Each year a new and different batch of spirits appear. Auditions are Saturday, Aug 6 at 1p at the Attmore-Oliver House at 511 Broad Street in New Bern.

Program director Marissa Moore is looking for volunteers, men and women, 18 and up to play the phantom roles. There are also a few roles for children ages 12-17. Those 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. “We’d like folks who are interested in this fun and exciting event, and who can give the time for the event’s three days. No experience is necessary. No preparation is necessary.” 

Participants will read from scripts. Those selected as ghosts will learn a script and participate in at least 2 rehearsals prior to Ghostwalk.  They will perform at one of 13 ghost sites including Cedar Grove Cemetery. Ghostwalk will take place the evenings of October 20 – 22, 2022.
