Tales of the Crypt – Spend an evening in Mount Holly 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 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.

The fun starts at 6:00pm and runs until 8:00pm.

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