This week on Haunt Weekly, we're bringing back Japes Palles on the show to finish up his conversation about actors with a discussion about actor management. It's a crucial topic for a haunt of any size but doubly so for larger haunts.
So how do you herd the cats on a haunted attraction? How do you make sure that the actors are doing their job? Most importantly, how does a small management team run dozens or hundreds of actors? Japes has the answers to those questions and many, many more!
In addition to the interview, we also go over some of the news this week, including getting Japes' opinion on the "broken nose" incident in Minneapolis that has stirred controversy nationally as well as a discussion of opening weekend challenges at Hell's Gate.
This week's episode includes:
- Revisiting the Incident in Minneapolis
- Discussing the Challenges at Hell's Gate
- Haunt Hierarchy
- Defining Roles
- Setting Expectations
- Continuing Support Through the Season
- Assessing Actors
- Actor Communication
All in all, this is one jam-packed show with more than a few takeaways that may be able to help you finish out this season strong!
