Tales from the Caretakers
October 4 @ 6:30 pm - October 26 @ 8:30 pm$15
This one-act play is being presented at Rock Ford by professional actors Cynthia Charles and Evan Cooper of The Theatre of the Seventh Sister. Evan and Cynthia will be playing eccentric husband and wife caretakers in the Rock Ford mansion in the years before the house was restored and became a museum. These characters are loosely based upon an actual couple who lived in Rock Ford during the 1930’s into the 1940’s and will relate stories spanning over two centuries. They will lead visitors on a candlelit tour of the mansion during which they will share some of the many legends, supernatural stories and first-hand accounts that have enshrouded Rock Ford and its inhabitants since the early nineteenth century. This unique event will blend theatre, history and ghost stories into an enchanting witch’s brew of spooky and atmospheric Halloween fun.
Please note this event is not handicapped accessible. Guests will be standing for the duration of the play, following the characters from room to room, and walking up and down stairs.
