Drive-thru, contactless Halloween theatrical experience coming to Orlando

Local performers wanted for auditions

A new contactless Halloween attraction is coming to Orlando this fall that promises to keep people safe from COVID-19 while providing theatrical, horror-themed entertainment.

“I started thinking about what we could do that would be safe during this crazy time,” said executive producer Jessica Mariko.

Mariko and her team wanted to create a Halloween-themed show where the audience is safely distanced from the performers. They decided on a drive-thru experience and came up with The Haunted Road.

“You’ll get a to scene where you’ll park,” she said. “And from the safety of your car you’ll be able to see a theatrical story with interesting characters, horror and scares. And then you’re going to drive to the next scene.”

Instead of a typical Haunted House with copious surprise scares, Mariko’s production will be theatrical, telling the story of Rapunzel leaving her tower for the first time to find out what the world is really like.

The Haunted Road Auditions Sign Up: Virtual rehearsals begin in late August. We are looking for ages 18 and up.

Tickets are $15 and purchased in advanced. Check-in will be contactless as well, done by scanning the car’s license plate.

Mariko said her team will be bringing on over 100 performers for The Haunted Road.
