Scream your way into the spotlight with Playland Scream Choir

We want you to send us a video of yourself screaming. Why, you ask? Because we’re putting together the world’s first “Scream Choir,” inspired by the most common sound people make on our rides. We even hired a real composer, Bob Smart, to help us do it. 

Auditions for the choir are open to people of all ages and screaming abilities. If selected, you’ll have two rehearsals with Bob. By the end of the rehearsals, you’ll be screaming a classical song like a total champ for a special live performance.

Auditions close June 18th. To learn more about how to submit your audition, visit screamchoir.com
