“TALES FROM HAUNTED NEW ENGLAND”
Interactive Spooky Tales at Storrowton Village
Storrowton Village Museum presents its annual Halloween happening, “Tales From Haunted New England,” Friday, October 27 at 7 p.m. in the Meetinghouse on the grounds of Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Mass.
Jessica Fontaine, director of Storrowton Village Museum, and museum staff members Sarah Platanitis and Jay Blaine, will join forces to present interactive storytelling in the candlelit Meetinghouse.
It all begins with an interactive activity where guests will join in to recreate a gentle rainstorm using anything they can as a percussion instrument (hands, feet, shoes, etc.). The tempo builds until the noises converge to become a deluge, echoing off the walls of the historic Meetinghouse. Let the spooky story begin as Fontaine embarks on a journey as a New England urban legend unfolds.
Platanitis and Blaine will lead the participants in storytelling as they impart haunted experiences of the time and offer guests the opportunity to improvise and share their own stories.
Families are encouraged to join in this fun and bewitching tradition of Halloween in Storrowton’s unique, eerie setting.
