They then prepare short monologues or dialogues, complete with period costumes, to be performed in front of the researched person’s grave.  Award-winning local costumer Debi Manire will once again provide the wonderful historical characters’ costumes.  Audiences are led through the cemetery from grave to grave by guides with candles. Al
