We are starting our Rails to the Darkside planning early this year in hopes of a very successful event. We are seeking enthusiastic volunteers that like to scare people to join the cast of Rails to the Darkside.

We will be holding Casting Calls at the Trolley Museum in the Theater on:

  • Saturday, June 3 at 9:00 AM
  • Saturday, July 8 at 9:00 AM

You must attend one of the casting calls to volunteer for this event. We will be going over the rules, policies, and event details along with paperwork that will need to be filled out by everyone. You still need to attend a casting call even if you have volunteered previously.

Don't like to scare but still want to volunteer? No problem! We could always use bodies around the campus making sure the event runs smoothly.

If you have any questions please let me know. We are looking forward to a fun successful 2022 Rails to the Darkside!
