Frightened Felons @ Old Pen 2016

Posted in Thrill The World Boise with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2016 by thrilltheworldboise

Many thanks to the Idaho State Historical Society for inviting us to perform once again at the 8th annual Frightened Felons event at the Old Penitentiary (2445 Old Penitentiary Rd., Boise, ID 83712) on October 28 and 29, 2016.

Performers should arrive no later than 8:45pm in full costume and make up. Please leave time for parking as this is a very popular event! The performances will be at 9:30pm each night. If you arrive early, the event organizers have requested that we get some zombie mug shots (in the 1894 Trusty Dorm on the map.)

Enter through the main entrance (tell them you are performing with Thrill the World) and make your way to the “Sally Port” area on the edge of the basketball court. Here is a MAP

Performers under 18 may have parents attend the event with them, but no additional spectators will be allowed to adhere to the venue capacity. The Saturday evening event is “Adult Night” so please keep underage performers in the basketball court area and plan to attend for the performance time only.

joetta-zombie-019-2

Thrill Day is almost here! Registration is now open for all zombies wishing to perform with us on October 29, 2016 at 4pm at the Boise Spectrum (7709 W. Overland Road, Boise, ID 83709)

***REGISTER HERE***

Pre-registration will remain open through October 27 and is highly recommended. We will also allow registration on site, but please make sure you arrive early so that we have time to add you to our final count. All performers are required to sign a waiver to perform, so if you are under 18 please make sure a parent or guardian is in attendance if you are registering on site.

All performers should arrive no later than 2:30pm on Thrill Day. Part of the magic of this worldwide event is that we all perform at exactly the same moment, so there will be no option to include zombies or who show up late! We will have a bonus performance for the audience to enjoy after the official count has been submitted.

Please arrive in costume with your make up done. If you would like assistance with make up the Beauty Institute (suite 100 at Boise Spectrum) is offering free applications on Thrill Day with this coupon. You must make an appointment for this offer so call today! 208-429-8070
