Halloween 2022 Calendar

Sunday, Oct 23, 2022, 5 to 6:30 pm

“The Graveyard Society”
a production by the White River Valley Players
Where: Rochester, VT Village Cemetery, Rte 100, next to Mac’s

The White River Valley Players will present a Players Outdoors production of The Graveyard Society on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23 beginning at 5 pm in the Rochester Village Cemetery (next to Mac’s.) Come listen to voices of Souls from Rochester’s past tell their own stories when they meet for All Souls’ Day. Their meeting is interrupted by a present-day tour guide who likes to embellish the truth, much to the dismay of the Souls gathered in the cemetery. Instrumental and vocal music will enhance the performance.

Audience members are asked to bring their own fold-up chair and are reminded to dress for the weather. Early arrival, at 4:45, would be appreciated. Suggested donations at the door, from $5 to $15. Refreshments will be available at the end of the performance.

Friday night, Oct. 28th (through Halloween)

Pittsfield’s gazebo on the green will be decorated for all to see. Drive by when it’s dark!
