The Aesthetics of Horror!

From Poe to personal, Gerald Fierst tells spookylicious and horrific tales to delight and fill you with fear and awe. Gerald has traveled the world gathering terrifying tales.

He guarantees that you will scream at least once this afternoon. Will you take the dare?

Elaine Muray
A Moveable Feast of Story

Elaine Muray's unique approach to storytelling incorporates mime and masks, swaths of cloth, and a command of sound and voice that create rich, memorable characters. A jaguar growls, a horse approaches and rears, a Maori warrior fends off a monster. Having trained with some of the masters in physical theatre, including the legendary Tony Montanaro, Elaine’s performances breathe new life into the old stories. The program includes traditional and personal stories particularly tuned to this magical time of the year.
Appropriate for adults and children 8 and older
