Clark's Trading Post overwhelmed by Wolfman wannabees
LINCOLN - Who knew there were so many Wolfman wannabees in New Hampshire?
Clark's Trading Post had so many applicants eager to become its next Wolfman that it had to stop accepting applicants for its upcoming auditions.
Anne Englert, who works at the popular family tourist site, said only those who have already registered will be able to audition on Saturday.
Of those who expressed interest, Englert said about two-thirds changed their minds after they heard what the job entailed.
But 17 people are preparing to audition and each will be given about 5 minutes to demonstrate their Wolfman skills.
Ages range from young people in their 20s to retired men. Some are actors; other have been involved in haunted hayrides, performing as Halloween characters. One is even a professional Santa Claus, Englert said.
Whoever is hired will perform at the trading post in the now-traditional role, dressing as a scruffy, unkempt wild man and chasing after a train full of visitors.
