Volunteers needed! Men and women, ages 16 and up for an outdoor theatrical production of "Halloween Legends and Lore," at Old World Wisconsin. Help us explore the traditions of European and Wisconsin folklore in the unique setting of Old World Wisconsin’s 19th century crossroads village. Guests will discover fantastic mazes, solve strange riddles and puzzles, create and decorate macabre artifacts, and encounter cackling witches, gloomy grave diggers, strange beasts, eerie fortune tellers and bizarre entities. They’ll also learn the terrifying origins of the Ridgeway Ghost, and witness ghostly tales come to life, while enjoying tasty and disturbing treats and drinks. The evening culminates with a wild bonfire finale. If you love Halloween and love to perform, we have the perfect way for you to share your enthusiasm and energy. We’re looking for volunteers to help with storytelling, inhabit our mazes, help with simple performances, and add color, mystery, whimsy, and frights to our event. Or, perhaps you have artistic skills you’d like to share and you’d prefer to work behind the scenes, creating decorations or constructing spooky mazes, costuming performers, or applying makeup. Or maybe you’d like to help man the craft tents and show kids how to make fun and simple Halloween crafts inspired by 19th century traditions, or help at the food stand, or greet guests as they arrive at the museum, or provide orientation (and riddle clues!) as guests explore the event. Commitments vary with the position you’d like to take on. No matter where your interest lies, if you would like to be involved in this fantastic show, please contact Old World Wisconsin’s Guest Services Coordinator, Bricelyn Stermer at 262-594-6382 or at Volunteers who wish to take a costumed performing role either as a maze haunt or another light performance role will need to attend a meeting on Sunday, Sept 13 between 4:00 and 5:30 p.m. at Old World Wisconsin in the upper level of the Clausing Barn, W372 S9727 Highway 67 Eagle, Wis.
