Lexington Park - 9/8/2006
The time period is the early 1920’s at Sotterley Plantation…..
Change is happening…………
The spirits are restless……………..
The Newtowne Players & The Sotterley Foundation present: Ghost Walk 2006!
Spirits are always among us. They are present in our thoughts and fantasies, present in stories and myths and, most importantly, often visible or sensed in our conscious existence. The period before and after Halloween is when these “Specters of the Night” dominate our psyches and activities. Each year the public is invited to visit Sotterley Plantation to walk the grounds and experience spirits which can often be encountered here.
This year The Newtowne Players, in cooperation with The Sotterley Foundation, and under direction of Bill Farrar, has agreed to organize and produce Ghost Walk 2006. If you have ever wanted to be a spirit or lead a group of apprehensive, frightened people among them, now is the time to step forward.
On Friday evening September 8th at 6:30pm-9pm and Sunday September 10th from 11am–1-pm at Three Notch Theatre home of the Newtowne Players, an explanation of the program and a casting call will be conducted. There are parts for 6-8 Speaking Spirits, 10-15 Wandering Spirits, 3 Stationary Spirits and 10-12 Tour Leaders. Once the casting is complete there will be 4 rehearsals at the theatre and 3 on-site rehearsals at Sotterley Plantation.
This Year’s Ghost Walk will be October 20 & 21 from 7pm-10:30pm at Sotterley Plantation. All proceeds from ticket sales go to The Sotterley Foundation.
Additional volunteers will be needed to help with technical support, and setting up the grounds prior to the event.
