On the Second Tuesday Evening of October, this year the 9th, add to Your Paranormal Journey! Visit Mt. Holly Cemetery for Tales From The Crypt! Come back to The Empress and enjoy our overnight package and a wonderful breakfast and dinner at Caio’s Italian Restaurant, all part of our “A Haunting We Will Go!” Package. Spend an evening in the cemetery meeting its residents! No, they aren’t ghosts. No, they don’t rattle chains or scare anyone. These residents are students from the Drama Department of Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School in Little Rock. Drama students research a person buried in Mount Holly. Then, they dress in period costumes created by award-winning local costumer Debi Manire and deliver short monologues or dialogues to highlight the history and lives of their character. Audiences are led through the cemetery by guides with oil lanterns, stopping at the graves where student actors are stationed. Many local teachers award extra credit to students who attend. Over a thousand people attend Tales of the Crypt every year, so go and que up early. Admission is free to the public. Mt. Holly Cemetery gladly accepts donations!
