  1. Hampton Horror Tours Open Auditions

    Get your ghoul on! Join our band of merry mischief makers and help bring to life stories and figures from the city’s dark side for evening walking tours to be offered Monday, October 22, through Friday, October 26 at 6:30 and 8 pm. We need outgoing and fun-loving people to portray the likes of ghosts of Civil War Soldiers, pirates from Blackbeard’s crew, German submariners, a speakeasy proprietor, gangsters, escaped prisoners, Spanish influenza victims, and more characters from the city’s tales of mystery and the macabre. No experience is necessary for these volunteer positions. If you are unable to attend either of the auditions, but interested in taking on a role, please call Hampton Horror Tours Director Jeff Corriveau at
