Sure, scary movies have their place. And haunted houses are a Halloween-season must. But often, the scariest things are the things that you create in your head. And scary stories are perfect for igniting the kind of imagination that keeps you up nights. Now that’s creepy. There will be no special effects during Tales of Terror at Victoria Mansion. No blood. No realistic-looking corpses. The storytellers don’t need them. The tales alone will haunt you.
Join local storyteller Lynne Cullen as she performs the works of Sheridan Le Fanu and Lucy Clifford, renowned 19th century horror writers whose works still influence the genre today. Performances are at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Friday and 8:30 p.m. Saturday. (Note: Friday 8:30 p.m. performance has sold out.) A children’s performance (recommended for attendees 12 and under) will be held at 6:30 on Saturday featuring folk tales from around the world.
Tickets are $22 for adults, $15 for museum members, and $10 for attendees 17 and under.
