DOSWELL, Va. (AP) -- A central Virginia amusement park is issuing a casting call for hundreds of monsters.

Kings Dominion in Doswell says the "Scream Test and Creature Casting" on Saturday night is intended to fill nearly 650 positions for its "Halloween Haunt." Most of those positions are for costumed monsters that will roam the midway for the annual Halloween event.

The hundreds who are hired will prowl mazes, scare zones and the midway.
