A Night of Fright Comes to Cardigan’s Stage
Date: 04/21/2017

Play rehearsalComing soon to Cardigan’s Humann Theatre, the Cardigan Mountain Players present three classic haunted tales to delight and scare audiences in a night of fright on our stage. A Monkey’s Paw, a short story by W.W. Jacobs, which most of our eighth graders remember reading last year, was the inspiration for this evening of plays. Another one of Jacobs stories, The Ghost of Jerry Bundler, will also be featured along with a thrilling tale by Lord Dunsany called Four Thieves, Three Assassins, One Idol, and a Ruby, whose title about says it all. 

“We’ve had a lot of fun playing around with this genre, building tension and figuring out how to give people a little fright,” says director Jeff Good. “Horror is often done as comedy in theater, but these tales are deadly serious.”

The boys will take to the stage for two performances. The first show is on May 25, 2017, and is open to the public. The second show takes place May 26, 2017, and is reserved for students, faculty, and staff. The curtain raises at 7:30 p.m. for both performances, so mark your calendars and get ready for some scary fun! Some of the material may not be suitable for younger children.
