Auditions in Pittsburgh for Ongoing Acting Job for “Trapped in a Room with a Zombie”


Audition for Ongoing Paid Show

Location: Lakewood, Ohio

Type: Variety acts

We are looking for fully costumed actors to portray our host Prof. Von Guttenberg and our hungry Zombie, Dr. Oxy, during an ongoing production Called TRAPPED IN A ROOM WITH A ZOMBIE. The show has the participants as protagonists in an interactive experience where they find clues and solve puzzles to escape a room. As Prof. Von Guttenberg you will walk participants through instructions for half of the performances you give and then be Zombie for the other half. More info about the production can be found at

Character: Gretchen/Gustavo Von Guttenberg (Chief Lab Technician)

This role is completely interactive from the minute our guests walk through the door until they depart as undead flesh eaters. Guttenberg is an actor in the show as well as the director of the 12 actors in the show who are the protagonists and decide their own fate. This role is extremely outgoing! We need bubbly folks with volcanic, improv personalities ready to erupt with excitement about the show.

Casting call for Zombies

Character: Dr. Oxy.

This character is a fully costumed starving zombie! This actor is a loud, athletic floor dweller who spends the duration of the show (1 hour) on his/her stomach and knees chasing the other actors (participants) around the room. This role can be very physically demanding and calls for being incredibly vocal each and every show. Dr. Oxy should go home exhausted, but never hungry for human flesh!

This role demands physical endurance and a keen sense of dramatic timing and live interaction between the show participants.

Actors with a history of improv excel in both roles.
All contractors that we hire will need to play both roles.
