The Old Jail Haunted House of Poteau is seeking 10-15 new volunteers to join their haunt crew for this Halloween season.

Dan Crawford of the Old Jail haunt said openings are for que-line, security, makeup, hospitality and in-house actors. Auditions will be held June 23-34 at 5 p.m. at the haunt located behind Patrick Lynch Public Library in the former Poteau jail building at 301 S. McKenna.

If you plan to audition, Crawford said preferred age is 14 and over, and you must be available Fridays and Saturdays after 5 p.m.

A portion of proceeds for the haunt will go to benefit the Poteau area Angel Tree program.

The haunt opens the last weekend of September and will run through Halloween.
