Tales of the Crypt

Spend an evening in the cemetery meeting its residents!

No, they aren’t ghosts. No, they don’t rattle chains or scare anyone. These residents are students from the Drama Department of Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School in Little Rock.

Drama students research a person buried in Mount Holly. Then, on the second Tuesday evening of October, they dress in period costumes created by award-winning local costumer Debi Manire and deliver short monologues or dialogues to highlight the history and lives of their character.

Audiences are led through the cemetery by guides with candles, stopping at the graves where student actors are stationed. Many local teachers award extra credit to students who attend.

Over a thousand people attend Tales of the Crypt every year.

Admission is free to the public. We gladly accept donations!
