Duluth Playhouse offers hodgepodge of creepy stories for streamingIt was a dark and snowy night at the NorShor Theatre, and Sara Marie Sorenson, framed by tall, lit candles in an alcove called The Executive Suite, had a story to tell.
“Back when Manhattan was just a tiny town, the village of Sleepy Hollow sat along a bend of the Hudson,” the actor read the opening sentence of the story that scared her most as a child.
“When you say ‘scary,’ that’s what I think,” she had said earlier, as she prepared to record her spooky segment — an edited version of Washington Irving’s story of the headless horseman — for the Duluth Playhouse’s virtual production of “Tales from the Ghost Light.”
The show, which features more than a handful of local actors’ contributions of one-person shows, original storytelling and classic tales, will be available for streaming on the Playhouse’s Facebook page and YouTube channel at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 and will remain online through Nov. 1. It’s free, but there is an option to donate to the theater.
