Edgar Allen Poe - the genius master of macabre - haunted his readers with such tales as The Raven, The Mask of Red Death, and the Tell Tale Heart.
This October, Mountain View High School merges the literary masterpieces of Poe with the chilling experience of an immersive haunted walk.
The entire experience will, literally, walk you through Poe's life, through his most famous works and through twisted passageways of his deepest haunts. You'll experience live action stories such as The Cask of Amontillado and William Wilson. But you'll also delve into Poe's psyche as you wander through Poe's obsession with medicine, crime and the 'imp of the perverse'.
Walking tours will begin in the MVHS Theatre foyer and leave every 15 minutes, according the ticket pre-sale ticket schedule, throughout the evening. All told, each experience should total approximately an hour.
Get your tickets in advance at http://mvwildacts.seatyourself.biz. To minimize wait times, walks will leave according to this schedule, so book your time slot now, before it fills up!
Based in part on Brat Production’s “HAUNTED POE" written by Greg Giovanni, with Original Music by Mike Kiley and first performed under the direction of Madi Distefano, October 1-31, 2009.
