Chambers of Fear and 13th Floor Haunted Houses Holding Auditions This Week

Believe it or not, but we're only a month away from the start of Halloween season. That's because the fright-dispensing folks at a few local haunted attractions begin slinging scares come mid-September, they're already busy readying their ghouls and goblins in anticipation.

North Phoenix's 13th Floor Haunted House and Surprise's Chambers of Fear are each planning to open on Friday, September 13 (natch). But before they get hearts pounding or people screaming, the proprietors of both will be hunting for fresh bodies to add to their respective casts of characters via open auditions held over the next several days.
