Ghostly stories make for Eerie Evenings at the Witch House
I hate to jump to the punch-line and ruin the suspense, but if you haven't gotten your tickets for Eerie Evenings at the Witch House, you should probably click over to their online ticketing right now, because tickets are going fast, and space is, indeed, limited.
We love (absolutely love!) the mixture of history and ghost story that is baked into an experience just spooky enough for Haunted Happenings. The show features several actors, we saw three, who tell stories steeped in true history and wrapped in details that are culled from the Salem Witch Trials and beyond. Each actor spoke from a different era and perspective, and each story was connected with common elements.
Well-told ghost stories steeped in history leave you looking over your shoulder and wondering if those two kids behind you are the kids, and is that elderly woman hiding something under her cap? It may take a shiver or two before you shake the feeling that strange things may be afoot in Salem.
Eerie Evenings tickets cost $11. Performances are on October 21, 22, 28 and 29. Click here for online ticketing, or call (978) 744-8815.
