Would-be actors are being called on to give thrill seekers the fright of their life.

Vampire Pleasure Beach returns to the South Shore attraction for Halloween on Saturday, October 31, and auditions for fightfully scary souls take place on Sunday.

Those who give the creepiest, scariest performances during the auditions will be invited to use their horrific skills to entertain visitors to the park on October 31

The open auditions are looking for actors to play zombies and other seasonal characters for the night.

A spokesman said: “Blackpool Pleasure Beach is world renowned for providing its visitors with thrills via its many rides and attractions but now the park is on the lookout for actors to provide the scares themselves.

“Those who give the creepiest, scariest performances during the auditions will be invited to use their horrific skills to entertain visitors to the park on October 31.”

There are 50 places on the scare cast, with six of those for the very best terrors - who will get extra training from the team at the park’s Pasaje Del Terror and will act as team leaders on the night.

The special scare school will include the art of scary make up, how to lead a team of zombies, how to talk like some of the most frightening characters in horror and experience what it is like to be on set at the scariest venue in town, Pasaje Del Terror.

Auditions will take place in the Globe Theatre, at the Pleasure Beach, from 3pm on Sunday in front of a judging panel from the Stageworks and Pasaje teams.

All applicants must be 16 or over and attending a performing arts course.

Auditionees must prepare a scare piece up to three minutes long, either individually or as part of a group.
