Contest: Win a pair of tickets to Stephen King’s musical thriller “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County”

Written by: Staff Reports

“Ghost Brothers of Darkland County” is “a haunting tale of fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge, performed by an ensemble cast of 15 actors and a four-piece live band.” It was also written by Stephen King with music by John Mellencamp and musical direction by T Bone Burnett. Not a bad collaboration. The musical thriller is touring the U.S. again, starting with performances in Orono on Nov. 8 and 9. It swings back into Maine on Nov. 20 – and we’re giving away two pairs of first-row tickets to the Nov. 20 show at Merrill Auditorium in Portland. (Want to buy your own?
