  • Asylum – Looking for Scareactors

    Posted on August 10th, 2018 Ocoee Lions Club No comments

    We are 70 days from opening night. As the plans draw near completion we are ready now to bring on scareactors to help with the haunt. We need 4 to 5 more actors at this time. Please note this is a volunteer only position and you must be 14 or older to apply.

    The haunt will be open October 19, 20, 25, 26, 27, and 30 with a dress rehearsal on October 15th. The haunt will be open from 7 to 10PM with actors arriving at 5:30 for makeup/costuming.

    This event is hosted by the Ocoee Lions Club so for those of you in high school working on your volunteer hours this would be a perfect program to get those hours. All proceeds from the haunt will go for charity in the local communities.

    If this sounds like something of interest to you please contact Lion Melissa Tanner at ocoeelionsclub@gmail.come for more information and/or to express your interest.

  • The Asylum hosted by Ocoee Lions Club

    In 2018 the Ocoee Lions Club will be hosting the 3rd Annual Haunted House. This year’s theme will be “The Asylum”. We will host the haunt on October 19, 20, 26, 27, 29, and 30 from 7 to 10PM. Cost per person will be $5. All proceeds will go to the Ocoee Lions Foundation which is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.

    This year at the Asylum you might have the pleasure of meeting several of our patients and/or staff. First let us introduct our Head Doctor, Dr. Lincoln Stone. Dr. Stone joined our staff in 1984 as an intern. He quickly showed that he had potential to become the head of the medical department. What was not known was that Dr. Stone had schizophrenia and with each passing day he was starting to slip into Psychosis. As the Psychosis got worse the nursing staff started noticing that patients were disappearing from their rooms and a day or so later items of clothing from the patient would be found in the boiler room or somewhere on the Asylum grounds. The staff became more and more convinced that Dr. Stone was killing these patients and eating them. Are you brave enough to walk the halls of the Asylum to see if you have an encounter with Dr. Stone?

    We would also like to introduce Mrs. Clara Jenkins or Clara. Clara was married to Dan Jenkins for 20 years and had 7 children, ages 18 to 11 months old. Clara’s husband died in the spring of 1990 of mysterious circumstances. This caused Clara to lose her mind. She came to the asylum in the fall of 1990 after it was discovered she killed and ate all 7 of her children. She was a model patient for years and then one stormy night she just disappeared. After that night many patients and guest reported seeing her running the halls and grounds, but was never able to be captured and returned to our custody.
