October 21, 22, 28, & 29 (rain dates October 23 & 30)
We are looking for a diverse group of approximately 20 volunteer actors to bring this spooky tour to life. Five tour guides will lead guests through the tombstones and the remaining actors will portray past West Hartford residents. Male and female actors age 12 and over are invited to audition; actors and actresses ages 17 and over are especially needed. We are hoping to fully represent the diverse character of our wonderful Town. Improvisational experience is a plus for tour guides.
Actors will have rehearsal most Mondays and Thursdays from 6:00-7:30 p.m. throughout September and October. The outdoor show will be October 21, 22, 28, & 29 from 6 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. (with rain dates Sunday, October 23 & 30).
Auditions will be held at the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society at 227 South Main St. West Hartford, CT 06107 on Tuesday, September 6 and Thursday, September 8, 2016 from 5-7:00 p.m. Reserve your 10-minute audition slot by visiting http://signup.com/go/twy1sh. Questions? Feel free to call us at 860-521-5362 x10.
Not an actor? We also need volunteers for make-up, lighting, costumes and the ticket booth.
This October, West Hartford Hauntings, the Noah Webster House & West Hartford Historical Society’s spooky theatrical cemetery tours, will once more take guests on a tour to meet those souls who met some of West Hartford's strangest ends.
The lantern-lit tours will take place on Friday-Saturday, October 21-22 and Saturday-Sunday, October 28-29 (rain dates October 23 & 30). Tours will leave every 15 minutes from 6:00-8:45 p.m. (Sunday 5:00-7:45). Guests will be escorted through the stones by a dearly-departed guide, who will tell their own tale on the journey.
