A popular walk of walk of terror event held by the Caravan Farm Theatre in Armstrong is returning this year and is in need of some kids to scare hundreds of adults.

“This is a gig for the kids out there who love Halloween… get paid to scare the living daylights out of hundreds of adults! Age must be between 10-13 or height must be under five feet,” according to a social media post by Caravan Farm Theatre.

Walk of Terror: System Failure, the farm’s latest theatrical spectacle, will run from Oct. 13 to 30. People will have the opportunity to experience a terrifyingly immersive 40-minute journey, complete with surround sound audio, and live performances by Kelowna’s premiere fire-spinning, stilt-walking performance troupe Kinshira, according to a press release issued by Caravan Farm Theatre.

With sound design by Kate De Lorme and narration by six professional voice actors Walk of Terror: System Failure explores what happens when a mysterious contagion starts to appear in the community.

With six start times between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. nightly, groups are staggered and provided with sanitized MP3 players and headphones.

This year’s walk uses a strobe, haze, fog, disturbing images, mature subject matter, strong language and is not suitable for children under 13, but the theatre will be considering family-friendly walks in the future.

“We see these Walks of Terror as medicine. A purge for the anxiety we all carry. These days, we are in need of a lot of purging,” artistic director Estelle Shook said in the press release. “After a big scream and jump out of your skin, people feel better. We are pleased to be able to offer this service to our community.”

Tickets for the 18th annual Walk of Terror are on sale now and can be purchased via phone at 1-866-546-8533 or by visiting Caravan online. Three young performers are needed for two nights a week, for two to three-hour stints from Oct. 7 to 30. Payment includes $30 plus two complimentary tickets. For those interested, the theatre is asking you to send an email.
