Boo! Gaslight Theater to Present 13 Scenes from Halloween

Gaslight Theater is busy rehearsing their upcoming show 13 Scenes from Halloween.

Triskaidekaphobia? You’re safe, we have a well-rounded cast of 14. Wiith actors ranging in age from 8 to 68, it’s a show for the entire family.

Thirteen tales with names like “Two Heads Are Better than One” and “Curse of the Ugly Dolls” are guaranteed to make you laugh and possibly scream, but with delight. Trick-or-Treaters, played by Aowyn Burbank, Lydia Drisko, Gilbert Burbank-Domenda, Taylor Crawford, and Francis Jewell (among others), will call for some treats, but the tricks just might be on anyone.

When Linda (Kelsey Parker) buys an antique frame, perhaps her husband, Jason (Henry Quintal) and her daughter (Megan Patterson), will need to adjust to some changes and Hilda (Jeanne Fletcher) just might make that happen.

Walter Guild as Mac will be ready for what might come his way but Claudette Jewell will be, too. Come see how their characters face their adversaries!

Julie Barrett, a long time player with Gaslight Theater, has an agenda (or two) and not much time to see it through. We even have a mortician (Ray Fletcher) and his wife (Meegan Burbank) with some rather irritating habits.

The show is produced by Anne Chamberlain and directed by Linda Duarte, assisted by Melanie Brown as the stage manager and John Upham as crew. Sound by Bob Gilbert, lights by Andrew Vick, and set by Brad Howard, John Upham, and Marc Loiselle rounds out the party.

With lots of roles and many playing multiple characters it is chaos—as it should be on Halloween. Children and adults are encouraged to wear their Halloween garb and join in the fun. This is family fun at its best. There are no less than four family groups involved with this production, so bring your whole family for some fun and fright!

With a full moon and a grinning jack-o'-lantern beaming from every window, who doesn't get just a little spooked at Halloween? This witch's brew of playlets is designed to make you laugh -- and shudder. Show dates are October 24, 25, 31 and November 1 at 7:30 pm and October 26 and November 2 at 2:00 pm. At Hallowell City Hall. The October 24th performance will be Sign Language interpreted! Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students.
