'Scary' roles at Alton Towers have attracted huge interest

HUNDREDS of people have applied for roles for the return of a popular 'spooktacular' at Alton Towers.

The theme park's annual 'Scarefest' never fails to be a hit with visitors at Halloween time.

As well as actors, the call has gone out from the park for make-up artists, technicians, set designers and costume creators to help make 'Scarefest' another huge success.

The 500-acre park will undergo a complete 'spooky' transformation throughout October leading up to the big event

More than 600 applicants have already been interviewed and auditioned across the UK to become part of the 'scream team.'

There are a handful of positions still up for grabs including performers, Audio Visual Technician, live shows and attractions hosts, as well as operational roles across the theme park.

Jason Mumford, learning and development manager at Alton Towers, said: "Each year our Scarefest event offers exciting opportunities for those working in the arts or looking to kick-start their careers in performance.

"The whole resort is transformed into the UK's biggest and best Halloween event, giving the actors lots of 'fang-tastic and spooktacular' ways to showcase their skills in a fun and vibrant setting.

"While details of this year's event are still under wraps, we are excited to be able to offer employment opportunities to those in, or looking to join the creative sector, which has been heavily impacted by Covid-19."

Socially-distanced auditions are starting today (July 27) in the theme park's conference centre.
