Haunted Majestic seeks spooky season storytellers for 2024 haunting season

By RealWV Staff,

It’s never too early to start thinking about Halloween, and the team at the Haunted Majestic in Huntington is already hard at work planning new thrills and chills for 2024’s spooky season. 

For this year’s upcoming five-week run, the Haunted Majestic is on the hunt for 10 outgoing storytellers to add a new dimension to the haunt experience.

“We are inviting local authors, and others to dress in character, stroll our midway stage, and tell spooky stories to our waiting guests,” Haunted Magestic’s management team states on their Facebook page. “Those chosen can set up a free vending table at the event to sell their books or advertise their business to all our guests.”

New authors, veteran writers, and ghost tour companies seeking to expand their audience by showcasing their work are invited to express their interest by emailing hauntedmajestic@gmail.com. The haunt plans to feature one storyteller each night of the event. Storytellers should be “willing to do a few brief but captivating and eerie readings per hour throughout the evening.”

The Haunted Majestic’s management team is also looking for off-season help with set design and building, costume-making, scheduling, and many other tasks in preparation of the upcoming season. Additional information is available by emailing your interest to hauntedmajestic@gmail.com.

Permanently moored on the West Virginia side of the Ohio River, the Haunted Majestic is the tri-state area’s only floating attraction. Originally serving as a hospital barge for some of the deadliest military battles the world has ever seen, the iconic Haunted Majestic embraces it’s macabre history by treating visitors to “not the scariest, not the goriest, just the most fun” haunted attraction west of Charleston.
