Local Hauntings | Ghost Stories From Windsor and Essex County
October 20, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
Monkeys With A Typewriter Theatre Company presents Local Hauntings, an evening of ghost stories from Windsor and Essex County, at Shadowbox Theatre on Saturday, October 20, 2018.
From the same people who brought you the Spirit of Sandwich, and Spirits of Amherstburg Walking tours comes something a little bit more stationary. Rather than walking through an area that is said to be haunted, the audience gets to sit and relax and have scary stories about those areas told to them.
The host, as usual, is a cowld figure carrying a lantern who walks among the audience. Oftentimes using unwilling participants to bring certain aspects of the story to life. And, of course, there will be the occasional “jump moment” where a host might pop up from an unexpected place and help continue a tale.
Some of the “greatest hits” from the walking tours get re-told in a new style. Along with some new stories that have never been heard before. The journey begins in the easternmost points of the country. The show will weave through different parts of Winsor and then head down to Amherstburg. And, of course, there’s a stop at Texas Road along the way! But the audience will never actually leave the performance space. Everything is explored through the imagination as skilled actors perform first-hand accounts of the people who had these paranormal experiences.
History and story-telling come together in a theatrical environment. You’ll enjoy some local culture and get frightened out of your wits at the same time! Avery fun and spooky night that will teach you a bit more about the area you live in.
Tickets are $15 each or $10 for students and seniors.
