Auditions take place for new acting roles at revamped York Dungeon
8:54am Monday 18th February 2013 in News
WANNABE witches, smugglers and Vikings attended auditions in York at the weekend in search of a new job at York Dungeon.
The dungeons, which were devastated in the September floods, have been given a £2 million overhaul and will re-open on March 29.
Ahead of the re-opening, local actors were given the chance to audition for starring roles at the attraction by performing a five-minute ghost story and a two-minute funny story about themselves.
Helen Douglas, general manager at York Dungeon, said: “It’s been tough to come back from the floods, but we are coming back.
“Our £2m rebuild will bring a new lease of life to our attraction and some of the talent already registered for the auditions fills me with confidence that the Dungeon is going to be a showstopper. The judging process is going to be tough but I’m confident we’ll find our stars.”
