10 Things You Should Know to Be the Next Wolfman
Is it a full time position? Do I need my own costume? What happened to the old Wolfman? Can there be a Wolfwoman? The Morning Waking Crew wanted answers so we reached out to Anne Englert from Clark's Trading Post.
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE OLD WOLFMAN
Timber, the Wolfman of the past seven years, struck it rich in the unobtanium mines this fall. One can only assume he found himself some digs with indoor plumbing, a fenced yard and nowhere near the train tracks.
WHAT THE NEW WOLFMAN NEEDS TO BE
We know he needs to be scruffy and unkempt. However, it is imperative that he's good with children, have a quick wit and be clever. Every train coming through is different so you'll need to be able to think on your feet.
HOW MANY HAVE APPLIED SO FAR
As of Monday morning at 8am, there were nine official candidates for the position. An additional eighteen were considering the role. Given that we're less than two weeks away from the auditions, potential applicants need to get in touch soon!
DO I NEED TO BRING MY OWN COSTUME
Nope, they have plenty available in assorted sizes for you to use. Your appearance, that's on you.
IS IT A FULL TIME POSTION
It is a full-time seasonal position, but two part time positions to fill the hours is a possibility.
CAN THERE BE A WOLFWOMAN
Women are welcome to apply for the position! We learned the Wolfman has been looking for a housekeeper, which explains why he has been single for all these years.
ARE THE AUDITIONS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
You are absolutely encouraged to stop by to cheer on your favorite Wolfman! The auditions will be held at Jean's Playhouse in Lincoln, NH on Saturday April 9th at 7pm. The event is free.
WILL A WINNER BE PICKED THAT NIGHT
No, Clark's will choose their three favorite contestants and continue the interview process within a few days of the audtion. The winner will be announced on their Facebook page.
IS THERE A SCRIPT
Yes and no. If you apply, you'll receive a sample script with which to work with but you are not required to memorize it. However, there are six scenarios you'll want to be prepared for so it may be wise to have something memorized.
