On a mid-October evening, performers will regale you with true tales from Laurel Hill Cemetery’s historic tombs. Complete with scandal, mystery and murder, True Tales from the Tombs will feature stories of the Cemetery’s most provocative and memorable permanent residents, as they return from the dead to tell their stories. Featuring The Not Ready for After-Life Players as storytellers of these tormented tales, the candlelit tours will depart every half-hour through the stones and mausoleums of Laurel Hill. Afterward, slow your heart rate with seasonal refreshments and cocktails aside blazing fire pits.
One evening of True Tales from the Tombs is scheduled at Laurel Hill: Friday, October 12 at 7:00 pm (with a pre-scheduled rain date of Saturday, October 13 at 7:00 pm). Tours will last approximately one hour and depart every twenty minutes, with the final tour departing at 9:00pm. Attendees are advised to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and to bring a flashlight.
