Tales from the Caretakers
October 5 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm$15
Rock Ford welcomes the return of “Tales from the Caretakers: The Haunted History of Rock Ford Plantation.” This play was first presented in 2013 and was favorably received by regional audiences. After five years, the “Caretakers” are returning to their former home at Rock Ford!
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 early 1950’s and will relate stories spanning over two centuries. They will lead visitors on a tour through the dimly lit rooms 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 that 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. This event is not recommended for children ages 12 and under.
Each performance is limited to 20 tickets. All tickets must be purchased on-line. For questions, please call 717-392-7223.
