Building on the success of the Zombie Horror Walk last year, acting students in Cornwall are rising to the challenge again and putting on fright-filled performance.
Karen Burdon, Acting Lecturer at Cornwall College St Austell described the event as perfect for those who would enjoy “a thrilling, adrenalin-fuelled experience”
“This is well suited for horror fans and those that embrace alternative theatre performances; this is a Horror Walk Experience and not a regular sit down show, so definitely not one for the faint hearted,” she added
“Attendees need to have fairly steely nerves and enjoy being on the edge. You have been warned!”
Participants must be physically fit and over 14 years of age to take part in this thrilling experience.
They will tour the spooky corridors of John Keay House in St Austell following a group of ‘Trainee Doctors’.
Acting Student Arlene Ashely said “this performance is exciting, but challenging to do”.
“It was interesting to learn about the true stories of asylums,” she explained.
“Hard work and dedication went into this project, to create the most terrifying performance yet,” another student commented.
Mental health awareness was also central to the development of the production for students and staff and information will be available for participants to reflect on.
In last year’s performance one of the participants of the walk compared it to Thorpe Park’s version and said that it was much more exciting to experience.
Performances for this experience will be on Halloween Evening which is Wednesday 31st October at 5:30pm, 6:30pm, 8pm, and 9pm at the Keay Theatre.
