Get your scare on in Stratford

Calling all wannabe zombies, ghosts and general horror fanatics – the Stratford District Council needs your help.

Stratford District Youth Council (SDYC) is looking for unique personalities to bring to life the greatest show of lost souls, as A Scary Night returns to Taranaki Pioneer Village with Carnival

SDYC co-chair Harmony Hanover said after the success of the first event in 2018, it is clear people love experiencing something out of the ordinary. 

“Last year was spooky and fun, and we aren’t clowning around when we say this year it will be even better.

“This September we’re bringing you A Scary Night: Carnival so don’t miss out on all the scares and fun, and come see how haunted we have become,” said Harmony. 

A Scary Night: Carnival is an immersive theatre style experience that will take attendees into the world of a crazy circus ringleader and his village of carnival characters. Think The Greatest Showman meets American Horror Story.

SDYC co-chair Connor Giblin said the event has really bought out the creativity of youth councillors.

“And it provides a great opportunity to build their understanding of what is involved in bringing ideas to life.”

The value of being involved extends to all volunteers. Performers, production crew, guides and more are all needed to bring the event to life.

Giblin encourages people to get involved early to secure their role and says the event is about giving it a go.

“If you think you’re a little too chicken to buy a ticket, then get on board as a volunteer as there is just as much fun behind the scenes,” he said.
