HERSHEY, Pa. — Editor's note: The above video is from May 27. 

Hersheypark is set to host performer auditions for its "Dark Nights" exhibit on Tuesday night from 5 to 8 p.m., according to a press release. 

The auditions will take place at the Music Box Theatre inside Hersheypark. 

Applicants must be at least 18-years-old on the date of applying, the release states. They also need to bring two forms of identification.

Prior performance experience for actors (speaking and non-speaking) and specialty performers are preferred, but not required. 

Dark Nights is a "frightfully immersive haunt experience" that "spreads its shadows over the Hersheypark landscape every evening during the Halloween seasonal event," according to Hersheypark's website.

This year, Dark Nights will feature three new "scare zones" and four horrifying haunted houses "as part of integrated thrill experiences guests can only find at Hersheypark," according to previous FOX43 reporting.
