In 2007, the Foxboro Jaycees and Bay Colony Productions at the Orpheum Theatre are again combining their talent and experience to produce a very scary haunted house, "HAUNTED HOLLYWOOD," located inside the Orpheum Theatre, Foxboro Massachusetts. This is the 19th year the Jaycees have presented a haunted house, and we are delighted to once again combine forces with the artists and actors of the Orpheum Theatre to bring Foxboro its best haunted house yet.

We are New England's largest not for profit haunted house. ALL (100%) of the profits go back into the community.

This is no children’s haunt; this is no slapped-together haunted fun house. We are a live-action show with dozens of performers and a crew of nearly 100. We combine nineteen years of Jaycee haunting expertise and the impressive professional creative talent of the Orpheum cast and crew to produce a very impressive professional haunted show. We WILL scare you, entertain you, and make you laugh. ...And very likely, we will scare the daylights out of you.

Although the haunt takes place in a theatre, this is NOT a SHOW where you SIT and WATCH the stage. This is a 20-25 minute walking tour throughout the entire theatre with frights and horror around every corner. You will enter the theater and take your assigned seat until your group is called (THAT’S RIGHT, NO WAITING OUTDOORS IN THE COLD THIS YEAR!). When it’s your group’s turn, your ushers will guide you in groups up the stairs, across the balcony, through many horrifying sets, and into a downstairs basement chamber known as "the pit," and much more...

...If you dare.

Our haunted house is VERY SCARY and VERY intense, and we don’t "tone down" the scare if little children are in the group - it’s not fair to the others in the group who waited in line and paid their money to be scared. Over 19 years of haunting, our experience has been that children under 10 cannot handle the intensity and fright, and MANY, MANY children have had to be escorted out before the tour ends. We’re not kidding - this happens a lot. There are always exceptional 6 and 7 year olds who love the SCARY haunt, but our experience shows that kids under 10 usually are not able to handle the haunted house. And please note: There are NO REFUNDS once you have entered the haunt even if you cannot finish the tour. Parents, you know your kids best - if you think they can handle it, bring them along, but in general the little ones won’t be able to handle it.


On previous journeys we've encountered clowns, murderers, temple demons, burning witches, butchers, carnies, ax-wielding mayors, cheating wives, circus folk, bank robbers, cursed guides, long dead kings, demented movie starlets, doctors wielding chain saws, evil museum curators, executioners, extraterrestrials, crazed camp chefs, grave robbers, hanging criminals, dread pirates, crypt keepers, insane prop masters, jealous husbands, misguided doll-makers, murderous monks, raving corn farmers, serial killers, torturers, vampires, mad electricians, voodoo priestesses, zombies, and even more terrifying encounters with supernatural beings like Dracula and the Devil himself. Passersby were amazed by the unusually large amounts of blood. We've encountered ghosts in taverns, nautical museums, and movie theatres. We've witnessed stabbings, hangings, mutilations, torture, and cold-blooded killers. Around us, the walls move, the floors fall, the ceilings have collapsed.

We have been repeatedly told we're scarier, and more fun, than most haunted houses out there. Do you dare take the tour?

We use strobe lights and fog machines and other very scary lighting / sound effects during the tour.


In 1989, the Mansfield and Foxboro Jaycees embarked on a new, untested fundraiser - a Haunted House. By 1992, the Foxboro Jaycees Haunted House was an annual event for more than nine thousand visitors each year. Over the last 19 years, we have run our haunt in tunnels under an abandoned hospital, through the woods of an old camp, and even at a mall. We have visited Old England and Hollywood. We have braved haunted mansions, villages, museums and universities, the old west, a magic school, and Camp Fright. We experienced a terrifying nightmare, found a lost jungle city, and even traveled through time. In 2006 we were delighted to partner with the Orpheum for the haunted theater, and in 2007 we're back at the Orpheum for an all-new show -- our best haunt yet.


At only $10, our admission price is still significantly less than many other haunted houses. We are largest not-for-profit Haunted House in New England, and 100% -- ALL - of our proceeds go right back into the community. Your ticket to our Haunted House helps make the good works of the Jaycees (community development projects, donations, scholarships) and the Orpheum (quality theater at great prices, community service) possible. THANK YOU for your support!


In October 2007, we'll be open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tours run from 7pm-11pm on October 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th. Tours run from 7pm-10pm on October 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th. Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling the Orpheum box office.

Now in our 19th year, we have always presented a very professional, scary haunt, well worth your time and admission price. This has been our motto since day one, and with the amount of return customers and great word of mouth referrals, it's obvious people see why we are still around. Anybody can slap together a haunted house but to make it sound and look as good as ours, and to be as scary and professional as ours -- that comes with time and 19 years experience.

Please make the time to come to our haunt and help make a difference in the community!





Please help us make our Haunted House even better by filling out an online anonymous survey. We value your opinion! We only ask that you attend the 2007 Haunted House FIRST and base your answers ONLY on this year’s haunt. In other words, if you visited us in previous years, please comment only on the 2007 Haunted House. To take the survey please CLICK HERE


Parking: Like all Orpheum shows, parking is where you find it (and free) along Foxboro Common and the nearby streets and lots. Please do not park in private driveways, or in the reserved fire official spaces across from the fire station. You can also park for free in the Invensys Systems parking lot, which is about two blocks from the Orpheum. Follow the directions to the Orpheum, but as you come to Foxboro Common, round the Common until you see the Aubuchon hardware store on the right and the Common on the left. Take a right after the hardware store (this is Bird Street) and proceed straight into the Invensys Systems parking lot at the end of Bird Street. Once you park, simply walk back on Bird Street to Foxboro Common and the Orpheum will be on your right, between the fire station and gas station. The Foxboro Jaycees and Orpheum/Foxboro would like to thank Invensys Systems for the use of their parking lot for this event.




 

We're all volunteers.

Please contact Mark Emery or Bill Cunningham at the contact information listed above for information about helping us / acting in the show. Please note this is VOLUNTEER effort and no one is paid for working at the haunted house. Being a part of our haunted house is incredibly fun, and very addictive.


Can kids work at the Haunted House? Absolutely. Please note that parents are REQUIRED to sign a waiver to allow the child to work at our haunt.

Getting kids involved at a young age teaches them about community service and helping others. For teen-agers, working at the haunted house counts toward any required community service program (school / religious ed / legal requirement etc).

Many kids who helped us years ago are now adults who run rooms, serve on the Haunted House committee, have joined the Jaycees, and most importantly, help us battle the evil clown who lives in the sewer below the theater.

Please download and sign a copy of the waiver HERE.


You now have the opportunity to purchase a text ad that will be displayed on the 2007 Jaycees Haunted House site. Our price is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than other website text ads that last only a few days and cost hundreds of dollars.

Best of all, your ad will run for one year. We do not delete the Haunted House pages once the season is over -- they are still available through the website menu -- and your ad would remain on our site for one year -- accessible through all the major search engines (such as Google, Dogpile, Ask and Yahoo) and visible to every visitor to the Haunted House page of the Jaycee website until September 1, 2008.

Ads are listed in the left column on this page.

That said, we encourage you to patronize YOUR favorite haunted houses (we still do!) It takes a lot of work to put on a haunted house, and whether the haunts you visit are fund-raisers or commercial enterprises, you can show your support by patronizing these great haunts all over the world! Also, the Foxboro Jaycees continue to be VERY active in Foxboro and run a variety of community development projects all year! Please check us out at www.foxborojaycees.org
