HAUNTING MAY BE VERY DIFFERENT IN 2020 PART 2.
1. Actor Recruitment. The closer we get to summer, the more it is looking like a wash. Especially here in NJ. Where you can stand at the beach but do not sit down! Yes, that right there is a real rule in effect for NJ right now and as we head to Memorial Day weekend. Some Haunts will start Actor recruitment right about now. This is going to be extra tough this year. With stay at home orders in effect it will make groups impossible. Sure, you can recruit Actors individually but this will pro long the process and make it very very tough to find the Stars.
2. Building in General. We have heard from a few Haunts and we know that some are having a hard time even building for the 2020 season. Some have been damaged due to the crazy winds we have had of late and no one has been able to get out there and fix and or re-design. So now they have to worry about workers and building along with everything else this time of year.
3. Training. Even if they can get the building done, the Actors hired and Staff ready, they still have to get into groups to start training new Actors. This can also be done remotely I guess but will it be efficient enough to start molding the newer Actors. This is going to be an interesting and test the skills of all of the Owners alike.
We really cannot read what the 2020 Season will hold. Will it differ from state to state? Will they even be allowed to open. Only time will tell until August when we finally figure it out. We hope everything gets better and we can have the best season of the year. Haunt Season. That is all we have for you today at HH365! Where Every Day Is Haunt Season.
