Deadicated acting students are rising to the occasion and putting on a unique zombie performance that St Austell has never experienced before.
The performances are on Halloween, Tuesday 31st October, and there will be four ‘experiences’ for the brave general public to take part in; 5.30pm, 6.30pm, 7.30pm and 8.30pm.
The sessions are expected to last for 30-45 minutes with a maximum of 20 participants per experience.
The Walking Dread is an interactive performance where horror loving audiences will start in the Keay Theatre at Cornwall College St Austell.
They will then go on a little tour of parts of the college in the dark, packed with tense moments, suspense and of course, plenty of zombies.
Acting student Olivia Coon explained that she’s “excited to be a part of this performance” as they’ve never done anything like this before and have been given “lots of freedom to create what we want from the performance and maximize the experience for the audience”.
“This will be a real interactive performance with the audience and it’s set to be our biggest acting project yet,” she added.
“We’ve already had a lot of interest in the evening so book your tickets now to avoid disappointment as places are likely to sell out quickly!”
Karen Burdon, Acting Lecturer at the college described the event as perfect for those who would enjoy “a thrilling adrenalin pumped experience”
“This is well suited for horror fans and those that embrace alternative theatre performances; this is a Zombie Experience and not a regular sit down show so definitely not one for the faint-hearted,” she added.
“They do 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.
