PRESS RELEASE: Held the second Tuesday of October, Tales of the Crypt is an annual Mount Holly Event. Under the direction of Fred Boosey & Tamara Zinck, drama students from Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School are each given a person buried in the cemetery to research.
They then prepare short monologues or dialogues, complete with period costumes, to be performed in front of the researched person's grave. Award-winning local costumer Debi Manire will once again provide the wonderful historical characters' costumes. Audiences are led through the cemetery from grave to grave by guides with candles.
Although it takes place around the same time as the American holiday Halloween, the event is meant to be historic rather than spooky. Many local teachers award extra credit to students who attend.
