Thornridge Manor

October 21-31

APU Grant Hall

In the tradition of The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, and Tales From the Darkside, a hair-raising wrap-around story becomes the vehicle for three bone-chilling tales of horror. 

 

It is almost midnight on All Hallows Eve when the residents of a small Northeastern town gather in the haunted ruins of a dilapidated mansion to tell chilling stories that make the blood run cold.  “The Monkey’s Paw”, “The Signal Man” and “Uncovered” along with the title story “Thorn Ridge Manor” are guaranteed to give you a Halloween thrill. Recommended for grades five and up or for those who can handle a good scare.

Curse-tastrophy!

Nightmare Hollow is known for Halloweens where the creepy characters spontaneously burst into song. But this year is different. A new witch has come to town and hilarious hijinks ensue when she casts a spell that causes the inhabitants of Nightmare Hollow to lose their voices. What will they do if Mother Mayeye can’t recite the official Halloween incantation? Is Witch Hazel, the coven’s youngest member, a match for the evil enchantress?  A physical comedy romp for the young and young at heart.

Written on the Heart

Wendy Williamson Auditorium

March 17-26

 

Across an 80 year divide, two men translate the word of God into the English tongue. For one, it means death at the stake. For the other, it could mean an archbishop's mitre. After almost a century of unrest, the King James Bible was intended to end the violent upheavals of the English reformation. But deep-seated conflicts force a leading translator to confront the betrayal of his youthful religious ideals, for the sake of social peace.
