This summer the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture becomes a working television production studio and a celebration of the dozens of local artists behind the hit Syfy TV series Z NATION. Museum visitors will be able to watch scenes being shot for Season Four of Z NATION, using the galleries as sound stages and the grounds as set locations, and learn how a real television series is made. In addition to getting a glimpse behind the scenes, visitors will also learn more about the local crew members that have taken their passion and talent for art and turned it into careers in filmmaking. Plus, signature props and costumes from the show, amazing special make-up effects and masks, interactive displays about the process and tools of film production, along with the history of Z Nation and zombie lore. 

JUNE 10 - SEPT 10, 2017


Z Nation Auditions
at the Museum

May 20 & 21 auditions have been postponed but will be rescheduled soon. Check this site or our social media sites for updates.


Before Season 4 can start production, Z Nation needs a few good zombies. Well, actually more than a few. Auditions will be held at the Museum, one of the filming sites for the Spokane-based SyFy show. Zombie wannabes and individuals with a passion for acting must be 18 or older to audition.

Victoria Gatts, background casting director for Z Nation, offers a few tips:

  • Do NOT come in costume or wearing zombie make-up.
  • Women: Don’t be heavily made up. We want to see your face.







  • Do NOT wear baggy clothes. We want to see your body shape and be able to observe how you move.
  • Be yourself, and show us your own unique zombie walk and moves. Don’t just copy other auditioners

While you don’t have to sign-up in advance, she recommends that you complete the online form before the auditions. You’ll already be signed up with a casting agent and can be assigned a number as soon as you arrive. If you wait to fill out the information at the audition, the process will be longer.

Complete the audition form now.
