    Everything has its own place.
    It depends on what your nun is doing or saying!

    If she is warning people and saying prayers ..That would be fine.

    If she is all bloody stabbing something with a cross. NO

    We have an Acting Coach position (1 for every 15 actors) where our best actors perform as roamers and coach other actors. They interact with the other actors showing them performance techniques and tips. I was thinking about trying one as a nun. He/she could interact with the staff and patients in the asylum. As an authoritative figure dishing out discipline while interacting with our guests.

    Definitely won’t do anything demonic. Thanks again for your thoughts and comments!

    Have a great season!! Just a month away.

    Just thought I would share the current success we are having with our nun character. She greets them when they arrive and lines them up against the wall before reading them the rules before entering the haunt. She carries a ruler and smacks it against her hand as she reads the rules. This includes telling everyone to spit out their gum (as she holds up a trash can). It’s funny to watch, but everyone is intimated as she orders them about. Our nun is actually a guy dressed as a woman. No one can tell it’s a guy. He wears a Habit and a padded bra and hip pads. Also black heeled shoes and he’s face painted with an old age appearance. He/she sounds like an 80 year old female chain smoker!

    Lots of groups want their picture taken with her as they leave. We haven’t had any complaints about using a nun in this position either. I’ll try to post a picture later.

    I agree with Larry. Movies do it all the time! I am a priest in our event this year and we are in SW Missouri. I was a little reluctant because we try to avoid anything religious. Also, without getting too personal, I grew up as a preacher’s son in a very conservative religion.
    It might be different for some haunts but with ours we have a different story line every year. So I convinced myself that it wasn’t a big deal because it is a character in a story. My setting is similar to one mentioned above. The room before mine is the mortician and my room is like a chapel for a funeral. I don’t do anything sacrilegious and I haven’t had any complaints or noticed anyone being uncomfortable with it.
    Here is a link to our story this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iuqylLny4fY
    I’ll post pictures of my character later.
