An Evening of Ghost Stories and New England Legends

May 22, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$15

For one night only, we’re bringing the campfire and the ghosts to you.

From the leading authorities on spooks and legends, come for a night of haunted history and eerie tales from across New England featuring the haunting photography of Frank Grace.

Presenters: Jeff Belanger, Carl Johnson, Tim Weisberg, and Andrew Lake.

You’ve never seen anything like this before. On May 22nd, we celebrate ghost stories and New England legends with some of the most accomplished authorities on the subject—all of them New England natives. This isn’t a ghost lecture full of theories, jargon, and text-filled Powerpoint presentations, and it’s not a work of fiction. These are true New England ghost stories and legends set to a backdrop of the stunning and haunting photography of Frank Grace.

Each performer will take you on a journey through history and haunts. You’ll hear tales of strange legends and unique stories that have become the fabric of New England folklore and culture. These tales are important because they define us as a people. These legends connect one person to another, and they are as much a part of our communities as the historic buildings that dot our landscape.

We’re bringing the ghost story and campfire to you! Plus, this production is being filmed as part of a PBS documentary that will air this Fall.

Tickets are $15 on the Web site or $20 at the door (if the event is not sold out already).
