Fall is here, the nights are getting chilly and Halloween is just around the corner!  It’s the time of year to gather with friends and family and tell spooky stories around the campfire.  While we won’t have the fire, the Arts Council’s newest production is chock full of classic stories told by some of your favorite actors – just in time to get you ready to “Trick or Treat.”

Lovecraft and David Roberson reading “The Tell Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe.  Ginger Correll, Stephannie Dees and Valerie Gardener Rives have served as coaches for the performers.
