American Ghosts

ACT will present an Autumn pageant entitled American Ghosts this fall at the Carriage House, Beaconsfield to open its 2003-2004 theatre season.

ACT will present an Autumn pageant entitled American Ghosts this fall at the Carriage House, Beaconsfield to open its 2003-2004 theatre season.

American Ghosts is a collection of dramatic works including stories, poems and songs based on the creations of two prolific Victorian American writers-Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. The premise of the show will coincide with its Autumn debut. The readings, songs and short plays all center around the themes of harvest, Halloween and all things foreboding.

Highlights of the show will include a one-act play based on Poe’s Tell-tale Heart, a dramatic reading of his famous story, The Raven, and glimpses of Emily Dickinson tucked away letting loose her imagination. Poems by the authors will be peppered throughout the event. Also, the Indian River Festival Chorus, under the direction of Carl Mathis, will complete this
haunting show with songs based on the poems of the two writers and Victorian settings.

The Carriage House will be fully decorated in Autumn style and seasonal treats will be sold at intermission. Show times are Thursday, October 30 at 7:30pm and Saturday, November 1 at 2:30pm and 7:30pm. Tickets are $12 adults and $10 seniors and students. Tickets may be purchased by calling Beaconsfield Historic House at 368-6603. Seating is limited and ticket
reservations are recommended.
