                     The Festival Playhouse presents:  Curse of the Werewolf!

October 9th, 2009 - October 25th, 2009

Directed by Charles Ault
Curse of the Werewolf opens October 9th, 2009, playing Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. & Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $15 and $13 on Sunday through October 25. Tickets are available by calling 303-422-4090 or online.

Buzz Halliburton, an entertainer fallen on hard times, is summoned to Gargoyle House, a spooky castle on a lonely New England island. The Gargoyle House has a family curse so there is a werewolf in the house. But who can it be? The
new governess? Sheriff Birdsong? The neighbor with the leaky boat? Olga, the gypsy? Wild and crazy fun for the whole family in the spoof for Halloween. Age appropriate=all. Remember, wear a costume and win a prize!

Tim Kelly's (1931-1998) first stage mystery was published in the 1960, at the same time he had plays opening in Boston, New York and Hamburg. From that time, he kept up a steady flow of works for stage and screen stage, including
adaptations of M*A*S*H and Murder by Natural Causes. His plays have been performed by The Royal Court Rep, The Studio Theatre, Manhattan Theatre Club, Los Angeles Actor's Theatre, the Aspen Playwright's Festival and the Seattle
Repertory Company. Charles Ault, Sr. started The Player Guild in 1936 as a means to put food on the table in the middle of the depression. A love for the theatre and a creative mind brought a group of talented community actors and
actresses together to provide the public with live entertainment. This concept was passed on to his son Charley Ault, Jr. who now runs The Players Guild, beginning its 74th year of productions.

Wild and crazy fun for the whole family in the spoof for Halloween!   Oct. 9 -25, 2009 - Fri\Sat 8 p.m. & Sun at 2 p.m.

The Gold Hill Inn presents entertaining MURDER MYSTERIES with dinner and overnight included in the package at its historic Bluebird Lodge. Now playing: Murder 1959 - Skeletons in the Closet. Our thriller deftly mixes real history with
mythical narrative resulting in an uproarious and engaging night of haunting intrigue. Call 303.443.6461 for details

Come join us, high in the Rocky Mountains, at the historic Bluebird Lodge built in 1872; for an evening of mystery and suspense. A limit of eighteen guests insures a very intimate and unusual theatrical experience. Begin with a champagne
reception, surrounded by characters from the past with stories to tell and secrets to divulge (or withhold). Later, in the dining room, keep your eyes and ears open as you enjoy a meal prepared by the famous Gold Hill Inn. You just may be
sitting next to a "killer." You and your team-mates will survey the scene of a crime, look for clues and interrogate suspects. Solve the mystery over brandy and dessert and win a prize.

Unwind next door at the Inn, gaze at the stars, or go to bed in the rustic Lodge, happy to have survived the evening... At last the mystery is over, or is it? Was that creaking on the stairs just an old building settling, or was it the ghost of
Eugene Field, or some other ethereal denizen of the old mining town? Look if you dare, or pull up the covers a little higher and dream of days long gone, but not forgotten. In the morning, enjoy breakfast with your fellow guests and new
found friends, but don't say goodbye, because we think you'll be back soon to hear and see another tall tale of the West.

Murder mysteries take place next door to the Gold Hill Inn at a historic hotel called the Bluebird Lodge. The package includes: champagne reception with hors d'oeuvres, five course meal with wine, after dinner brandy, overnight
accommodations, continental breakfast, tax and gratuity. It also includes the murder mystery itself. We book 9 couples per M.M. either individually or as a private party. There are 9 sleeping rooms, each with a queen size bed.

                                                          Buckskin Joe's Town of Terror 2009!

Back with a VENGEANCE!

Dates for 2009: October 15th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 25th, 27th, 29th, 30th & 31st

(Approximately 20 - 30 minutes of TERROR)

Due to the popularity of Buckskin Joe's Town of Terror, our patron's will have to wait in line. The wait time on Friday and Saturday Nights is longer than on the other nights; so be prepared to wait awhile on Friday & Saturday. We will not
issue refunds due to wait times. Please look for the posted wait time at the ticket area. If you have a choice you may want to come on another night beside Friday or Saturday. Also, as this is both an outdoor & indoor haunt, you will want to
dress appropriately. Please note we do not issue refunds for any reason.

.........See what evil is lurking around the next corner this year as the staff of Buckskin Joe transform this peaceful old west town into a sinister haunted attraction that rivals the best of the best anywhere. Leave it to our twisted staff to take
something already scary at night and turn it into something so down right demented that adults literally wet themselves, on a nightly basis. No wonder it is fast becoming known as one of the most frightening haunted attractions in Colorado!

Buckskin Joe exploits its own renowned haunted history, which was highlighted on the History Channel’s - Haunted Rockies Series, to turn Town of Terror into something hauntingly special. Inexplicable things that go on here day after day
and year after year only enhance the visitor’s experience. Some have seen little children, apparently part of the haunt, only to be told there are no children involved with the haunt. Still others feel the touch of another only to turn and see
no one. This is the experience that awaits the most hardened haunt seekers.

Imagine a haunt, isolated from city noise and lights, set in the Colorado foothills where no one will hear you scream. Imagine a quiet so loud it drives ones imagination wild, or does it? Imagine stepping into a town surrounded by the specters
of buildings from a time long ago. They themselves, ghosts of a past forgotten and silhouetting the night sky like evil guardians of the sinister town. Imagine rounding a corner and being face to face with the Lincoln Theatre (the Grand
Central Station for nether- world activity in Buckskin Joe), its eyes keeping watch over the town. Remembrances of a past fraught with death and destruction. A past as an old barn used for public executions in the late 1800’s and
additionally to store bodies in during the winter until the spring thaw came and softened the ground for burial. Now imagine that you are in the town alone, separated from the people you trust and the only way out will take you through the
depths of your own soul.

Warning this event is not recommended for persons who are faint at heart, claustrophobic, are prone to seizures or recommended for young children under age 12. Uneven footing, tight, enclosed spaces, low lighting, strobe lights and fog
effects are in use. A few lucky souls each year get an additional experience of seeing our real ghosts each year, will you be one?

TICKET PRICES: Adults ~~ $ 17.00 --- Children (ages 11 & under) ~~ $ 15.00

                              At the Western Museum of Mining and Industry

Opens at 7:00 p.m.

Experience Total Terror!

Looking for some thrills in October? Check out HAUNTED MINES on the Museum grounds. The attraction will operate on weekends and each night from October 27 through November 1

The Haunted Mines haunted house is open most evenings during October. Please see our
Calendar page for the exact schedule

The Haunted Mines are Colorado Springs' most exciting seasonal Halloween haunted attraction. This "haunted house" type of attraction is constructed on the historic, 26 acre, centuries-old grounds of the Mining Museum,

a former dairy farm from the 1800's.

The Haunted Mines haunted house is designed to thrill, scare, and entertain you. It is an indoor, outdoor, and underground fun experience that is physically and psychologically challenging......

The Haunted Mines haunted house is open to the public. The attraction is not recommended for children under 12 years old, unless they are accompanied by an adult.

The Haunted Mines are not recommended for pregnant women, people with heart conditions, epilepsy, claustrophobia, or those who are scared of things that go bump in the night. Sorry, the mines are not ADA accessible.

Question: Do I really have to crawl through small, dark tunnels?
YES! The smallest openings are a creepy cramped 20" square and a 15"x30" rectangular opening. This is not a problem for most people. However, if you absolutely cannot handle it,

make your fear known and a security guard will escort you through a much larger bypass. Note that when you use a bypass passageway, you will not experience all the thrills and terrors we have in store for you.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to our extreme popularity, especially on Friday and Saturday, we WILL CLOSE THE GATE and STOP SALES when we reach capacity. Lately this has been about 8:30pm.

If you already have tickets, we will make every effort to get you in. If you do not have tickets and we've closed sales, you WILL be asked to return on a less busy evening or perhaps later that evening
(there's a lull at 10pm). We sincerely apologize for this inconvienence, but the safety of our visitors is paramount.

The Haunted Mines haunted house in Colorado Springs is open "Dusk to Die" - from when it gets dark at night (dusk), until the lines DIE down. Typically that's 7 to 10 on the weeknights that we're open (see calendar above),

and 7 to Midnight on Friday and Saturday.

To get to the Haunted Mines Haunted House in Colorado Springs, go to I-25 exit 156A - the Gleneagle / North Gate exit. Just across from the United States Air Force Academy's north entrance.

We're right there, on the East side of the highway. "225 North Gate Road". Down in all those big trees. See that spooky-looking red & white Victorian farmhouse? Yup, that's where you turn in. See those big old red barns?
That's where you want to be. Follow the signs for parking.

The mission of the Haunted Mines haunted house in Colorado Springs is to provide the highest quality haunted experience for Halloween enthusiasts, while supporting the Western Museum of Mining & Industry,

a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the public about the history and continuing contributions of mining in the American West through its collection, restoration, exhibition and interpretation of artifacts
related to mining, metallurgy and their support industries. All proceeds benefit the Western Museum of Mining & Industry.

The Blake Street Vault Restaurant  –  The Ghost Hunter Experience  –  October 30th from 7 – 9pm

                  Hosted by Spirit Paranormal Investigations

                                                    Ghosts of the Blake Street Vault:

This is a story told best on a late October night by the fireplaces in the Blake Street Vault.

She has been called the 'brown ghost', the 'lady in red', and recently she was named Lydia by investigative ghost researchers. And although you might not be lucky enough to tour the basement of the Vault, and catch a glimpse of her in
the shadows, her likeness rocks quietly above the front door.

According to legend, she's a saloon girl from the original 1860s establishment, one of the first built in Denver, a time when saloons, gambling rooms and houses of ill-repute were just beginning to flourish in this rough frontier town. As one
of the early settlers wrote of Denver City, “…a nursery of almost every vice, a hot-bed of an unprincipled and dangerous sporting fraternity.”

Usually when the Vault is quiet and nearly empty, some have heard her walking across the old wooden saloon floors in high heels, and others catch a glimpse of her out the corner of their eye while walking down the stairs to the basement

No matter if or how you experience her, we respect the fact that this has been her residence for many years now. She is one of the few ghosts that peacefully inhabit our building.

We have been told other stories of a merchant marine who resides in the basement, and although this seems far-fetched for an Old West town, multiple bottles of 19th-century Ginger Ale from Belfast, Ireland were found in the basement
excavations. These historic bottles and other artifacts can be viewed during a tour of the Vault.

Come visit the Blake Street Vault and experience the great food, unique drinks, genuine Colorado hospitality - and maybe catch a glimpse of our other-worldly friends.  Enjoy!

                                                                        The Vault:

Now available to be viewed by the public!

"The Blake Street Vault restaurant and bar have been named after this ornate vault which had been hidden under a trap door for over a century"

The basement brick wall and hidden staircase leading from the trap door were removed from around the vault to expose this amazing vault for public viewing.

After complete restoration, this historic vault will hold privately owned bottles of Jack Daniels Single Barrel specially selected for the Blake Street Vault and its patrons.

                         Historic Five Points Ghost Walk!
             Ghost tours of the haunted Black American West Museum
                         Justina's House (Dr. Justina L. Ford)

The Black American West Museum located at 3091 California Street, Denver, CO, 80205 is hosting a series of Haunted History Ghost Tours. The ghost tour begins at the Black American West Museum in the former home of Dr. Justina L.
Ford, Colorado's first African American woman doctor. Each year hundreds of museum visitors from all over the world report watching a mysterious woman walking briskly from room to room, then disappearing.

The staff and volunteers of the museum have also reported, the sound of footsteps, when no one else was in the museum. Others have accounted being gently touched by an unseen hand. Several children recently stated that Dr. Ford
stroked their cheeks while sitting on her front steps. The museum is furthermore reportedly haunted by a male presence, some say it is her second husband, Alfred Allen, 18 years her junior and a second female ghost, perhaps her sister
who died after a tragic car accident.

The guided tour continues along Welton Street, once known as the Harlem of the West. Five Points and the Curtis Park district, northeast of downtown, was a sanctuary for the African American community. Ever since Benny Hooper strolled
into town in the 1920s and opened up his club/recreation center/hotel for black servicemen, the streets of Five Points have whispered Jazz. Billy Holiday, Josephine Baker, Duke Ellington and many others performed along this historic
corridor. Five Points was a city within a city, which had barbershops, saloons, pool halls, doctors, lawyers, funeral homes, brothels and bootleg bars. Some say late at night you can still hear strains of Jazz music and laughter floating from
the doors of former nightclubs. Are you brave enough to visit the site of the most dangerous bar in Denver, where several people were murdered! Visit the site of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass's sons, where they opened one of
Denver's first mortuaries.

Rsvp your guided haunted house and ghost tours in historic Five Points during the month of October, Tuesday - Saturday days and/or nights. The cost is $20.00 per person, discounts for not for profits, schools and large groups. Package
includes guided haunted museum tour, ghost walking tour, hot chocolate and cookies, rsvps only. Call 303-482-2242 to register early, last year tours were sold out. Or email us to set up your tour!

part architecture-of-death, part botanical, part supernatural, this tour has something for everyone. Join us, but be ready to walk lightly. There are bones underfoot! (This tour includes a one-hour break for lunch. Participants should bring

                                             Phil Goodstein Tours!

Haunted Halloween

The ghosts of Denver are omnipresent. Who are they and what did they do? Where do they haunt and what do they want? All this and more will be featured on a bus tour of Capitol Hill's haunted houses.
Stories include tales of the floating heads under the Capitol, the parking lot that glows in the dark, the murdered hippie boy, and a changeling. None of the haunts will actually be entered (for fear someone might disappear).
Phil Goodstein is the author of The Ghosts of Denver. These tours are X-rated, not for children or the faint of heart. And, don't be late! The tour leaves promptly at the appointed time and will not stop to accommodate stragglers.
Because of problematic spirits in the past, no alcohol is allowed on the bus.

                                                             Night of the Living Dead - on stage!

October 2nd, 2009 - October 31st, 2009

Location: The Bug Theatre, 3654 Navajo in Denver

Just in time for Halloween, flesh-eating zombies return to Denver’s historic Bug Theatre in the classic tale Night of the Living Dead like it was never meant to be seen: live and on stage!!!

To escape a horde of flesh-eating zombies, seven people hole up inside a desolate farmhouse. One has the virus…one has a gun…one has lost her mind. The ghouls increase in number outside as tensions mount between the survivors
inside. Will any of them make it out alive?

Adapted from the 1968 George Romero film classic of the same name by local playwrights Kris Hipps and Duane Brown, the play is being unleashed by The Bug Theater Company and Papercat Films. A unique aspect of the show is that all
the action taking place inside the farmhouse is on stage, while the action outside the house is projected onto an overhead screen, utilizing sequences re-created and shot by Papercat Films.

Last year’s inaugural run of Night of the Living Dead played to several sold-out shows and is fast becoming a Denver ‘must-see’ for the Halloween season. The show is being produced by Alex Weimer, Kris Hipps, Duane Brown, and Donna

The show runs Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m. from October 2 to October 31. Tickets are $15 ($12 for anyone in full zombie make up and costume and FREE for any actual zombies!). To reserve seats, please call the Bug Line at

The Bug Theatre is supported in part by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD), Breckenridge Brewery and

                                                                     The Butler Did It

                    the Denver Victorian Playhouse

September 18th, 2009 - October 31st, 2009

Denver Victorian Playhouse, 4201 Hooker Street; Denver

By Walter Marks and Peter Marks
Directed by Pat Payne

Opening on Friday, September 11th, 2009, the Denver Victorian Playhouse presents Walter Mark’s and Peter Mark’s “The Butler Did It.” Performances run Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. & Sundays at 2 p.m. through October 31.
Tickets are $22.00 and are available by calling 303-433-4343 or online at

The scene is the set where Anthony J. Lefcourt, writer and director, is rehearsing his new play, a "classic whodunit" (in which all the characters are named Butler) with which he hopes to regain the success which has eluded him in recent
seasons. Desperately eager to stimulate his cast to their best efforts, he has deliberately withheld the final scene of the play from them, but his patience is worn thin by the petty jealousies and romantic rivalries which detract from their
concentration. In an effort to spur them on he "stages" the murder of one of the actresses, after which the plot begins to twist and turn with such dazzling ingenuity--and hilarity--that soon actors and audience alike have lost track of what is
real and what is make-believe--until a surprise ending sets matters straight in a most bizarre and ironic way.

Director Pat Payne has cast Mark Ivan Branche as Anthony J Leftcourt, Matt Block as Michael/Aldo, Timmi Ann Lasley as Claudia/Miss Butler, Mike Pearl as Robert/Mr. Butler, Clark Brittain as Sam/Mimford and Molly Killoran as Natalie/Vicki.

Described as the Off-Broadway equivalent of Deathtrap, this deft and diabolically clever thriller mingles laughter and chills as it skillfully unwinds its twisted tale of murder and mayhem in the glittering world of the theatre.

Denver Victorian Playhouse presents “The Butler Did It.” A deft and diabolically clever comedy thriller. September 11 – October 31. Fri/Sat at 7:30 p.m.; Sun at 2 p.m. Denver Victorian Playhouse, 4201 Hooker Street in Denver. Tickets:
$22.00 - 303-433-4343 or

Happy Hauntings
By Joel Warner

The story goes like this: Corridor 44, at 1433 Larimer Street, was once a brothel owned by a reformed showgirl and her ornery husband. When the couple's daughter began dallying with a city lowlife, the irate father sent a hit man to rub out
the boyfriend — except the plan went wrong and the daughter ended up dead. Her mother was so distraught that she hung herself in the brothel — but her grief didn't end with her death. There's a framed photo of the former showgirl in
Corridor 44's basement featuring glass that shatters on its own. Hallways creak mysteriously, and unexpected whiffs of perfume linger in the air. Sometimes the activity occurs down the block. Gelazzi, at 1411 Larimer Street, was terrorized
one Father's Day when gelato cups flew across the room. Maybe the occasion made the troubled mother remember her bloodthirsty husband. Or maybe she didn't like her ice-cream cannoli. This is just one of the tales related on the LoDo
Cocktail Hour Ghost Hunt, which begins tonight at 5 p.m. with appetizers and anecdotes at Corridor 44.

The three-hour expedition includes visits to the Sugar Building and the vault in Union Station's basement, plus hors d'oeuvre stops at the Oxford Hotel's Cruise Room and Mattie's House of Mirrors — another former brothel, and supposedly
the most haunted place in Denver.

"Sex and liquor add up to bad things," says tour guide Terra VonDrehle. That and gelato cups. Tours continue through October; tickets are $20, $15 for students. For more information, call 303-902-8620 or 720-878-6850.

Venue info:  
Corridor 44
1433 Larimer St.
Denver, CO

                      ***********  Interesting note from  ***************

The old building that now houses Corridor 44 was previously a restaurant called Josephina's:

Here are various article bits that I gathered from the old Josephina's website, Denver Post, as well as other older publications:

Amelia: The ghost of Josephina's

Josephina’s is home to one of Denver’s most well-known ghosts, Amelia, who makes regular appearances. A showgirl who lived nearly 100 years ago - her life is rumored to have ended tragically, although the exact circumstances
remain a mystery.

Today, Josephina’s remains a local favorite for its classic Italian fare, its dedication to a good cocktail, and its friendly service. Adhering to the high standards of the businesses that have occupied this space since the late 1800’s,

Josephina’s on Larimer Square is committed to making your next visit into that nostalgic tale that you will share with future generations!

For many years Josephina's restaurant employees have told stories of a "presence" felt or seen in the restaurant and reported bizzare incidents that could not be explained. A psychic involved in a recent investigation of the

100-year-old building Josephina's calls home, confirmed the presence of a resident spirit and revealed the story of Amelia......

Josephina's and the Legend of Amelia

Josephina's Restaurant has an intangible quality that is felt by all, no matter whether you are a first time visitor or a loyal customer. The long-time unofficial Denver landmark has an unexplainable "energy" that adds to the
already welcoming and relaxed environment. The atmosphere of the restaurant, the "energy", is in part attributed to the vitality of the resident spirit, Amelia. Amelia is known for her love of people and entertaining.
She is often to blame for the somewhat mischievous, yet harmless activities around the restaurant.

The Tragedy Behind the Spirit of Amelia

According to the recent psychic investigation, in the 1920's, Josephina's was home to one of Denver's most infamous dance halls and speakeasies and Amelia was a showgirl. She fell in love with the owner known only as "Papa".
They married and Amelia became the establishment's well-known hostess. They had a daughter named Ginger.  As a young woman, Ginger, against her father's wishes, began to date a boy whose family was rumored to have
underground connections. Upon discovering the news, Papa arranged for a "hit man" to "take out" young Ginger's love interest. The "hit man" murdered the young boy, but through tragic circumstances, also mistakenly killed Ginger.
Amelia received word of her daughter's tragic death while sitting in the back room of the speakeasy (which is now the area near the ladies room). Today Amelia's presence can still be felt in this area of the restaurant.

The Frontenac Building and It's History

The Frontenac Building, the structure that houses Josephina's, has a colorful history in Larimer Square. Local historian and author of the book "Denver's Larimer Street," Tom Noel,
writes that the Frontenac building housed a variety of businesses from a barbershop to second hand stores. Noel clarifies that the book chronicles a representative sample of previous use of the
Frontenac building, but does not include the building's entire history, a task he has not yet undertaken. He concedes that the Frontenac building could very well have been a speakeasy and a dance hall as our psychics have claimed.

    The Lost Theater Troupe presents......... Cannibal the Musical!

October 16th & 17th, 2009

A benefit for the Museum of Western Colorado ---- "Cannibal the Musical" - based on a film written and produced by Trey Parker, the creator of South Park. It is a humorous but faithful retelling of the story of Alfred Packer, the Colorado
Cannibal who was convicted of eating his companions while lost in the winter wilderness. The musical is done in a classic Broadway style, borrowing from shows like Oklahoma, with fast-paced dialogue and show-stopping musical numbers.
This is a humorous but faithful retelling of the story of Alferd Packer, the Colorado Cannibal who was convicted of eating his companions while lost in the winter wilderness.

Because of mild language and comic violence, it is recommended for mature audiences or with parental discretion.
This is an important fundraiser for the museum. All proceeds from ticket sales go toward maintaining the same great standards museum visitors have come to expect at all three museum sites. Whether you care about history, musicals,
Colorado or all of the above, you should attend this hilarious evening of entertainment!

night vision camera and sensitive microphone systems."

                              The Annual  Victorian Wake for Emma Crawford!
                ......At the haunted Miramont Castle!

October 23rd, 2009


It is with great sorrow that we mourn the passing of Miss Emma Crawford.

As most of you, her dear friends know, in 1889 Emma came to Manitou in search of her health. She was accompanied by her mother and her fiancé Mr. William Hildebrand. It was the young couple’s greatest desire that Emma,

who suffered from consumption, would benefit from Manitou’s healing water and crisp mountain air. She partook of them both abundantly and freely on her many walks in the area.

Emma rallied and was busily preparing for her wedding. Life was a blessing indeed. But fate held a different card and the Reaper was not to leave with empty hands. Emma succumbed.

Father Jean Baptist Francolon and his mother Marie have graciously offered to open their magnificent home, Miramont, for Emma’s wake. Many of her friends that she had met on her travels seeking better health are making

plans to attend. Some of the more notable are Dr and Mrs William Bell, Dr. Davis, and of course Father Francolon and his mother Madam Marie Francolon.

If you wish to attend her wake on October 23, the viewings will be at 6:00pm, 6:30pm and 7:30pm. The cost of admission will grant you entrance into Miramont, viewing of Emma laid out in the parlor in pure Victorian splendor,

and a Victorian Wake, resplendent with a full Victorian buffet dinner and beverages in the Great Hall. Since this is sure to be one of the year's most talked about events, space is limited.

Reservations are required. Call Miramont Castle Museum to reserve your viewing time on your Visa, Mastercard, or Discover Card, which will be charged after 4:00 Wednesday, October 21, at which time all reservations are final.

Cost for dinner and wake:

$25.00 for adults

$15.00 for children (12 and under)

October 23rd, 2009

2009 Education Series Program Schedule

6:30 - 9:30 p.m

Edgar Allan Poe ---  A characterization by David Skipper

“Dark Whispers of Genius”

David Skipper portrays Edgar Allan Poe, America’s premier Gothic poet, writer, literary scholar and critic. Join Poe on an unquiet voyage as he takes you on a journey into the dark recesses of his creative writing process, and reminisces on
early literary influences and experiences that shaped him as a writer and poet. This presentation includes the recitation of some of Poe’s well known and rare works.

As a literary scholar, Mr. Skipper, in period costume, begins with a dramatic monologue—in character. He incorporates anecdotes about the author’s life, literary influences and the creative writing process, while weaving excerpts of the
writer’s works into the program. He then takes questions from the audience and answers them as the actual author might have done. During the final minutes of the program, Mr. Skipper steps out of character and responds to questions as

$60 per person. Evening format includes Tours of the Castle, Supper Buffet, Cash Bar, Presentation, Dessert/Coffee Reception and Conversation with David Skipper.

Directed by: Ellen Farnsworth

It is the precursor to the 1975 cult movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Both the original stage production and the film starred Tim Curry as Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite mad scientist from Transsexual, Transylvania. Fans of the movie
who have attended midnight screenings dozens or even hundreds of times have developed complex rituals including dressing as their favorite characters, heckling the on-screen dialog, pantomiming scenes and throwing such odd props as
rice, toast and hot dogs.

Audience members are invited to attend in costume, but props will not be permitted in the interest of the safety of the performers.
