Night Light

I was always the kid at the slumber party who dreaded the witching hour, when the flashlight would inevitably come up to someone's chin. But I would endure it, even though the creeps lasted for years. (To this day, the one about the China doll that came alive makes me look twice at those porcelain faces.) Tonight, the Byers-Evans Museum is hosting a program that people like me should steer clear of: Ghostlight, where true and close-to-home ghost stories will be told one after the other, and children are not encouraged to attend.

Playwright Michael R. Duran created the script based on actual spine-tingling events that occurred in local theaters. Each tale is told in a different room as the moveable theater migrates through the historic mansion at 1310 Bannock Street. Tickets for the 7 p.m. show are $10; Ghostlight runs weekends through October, with an additional performance on Halloween. Reservations are strongly recommended, as space is limited. Call 720-233-0811 or go to www.homegrowntales.com.
Fridays-Sundays, 7 p.m.; Wed., Oct. 31, 7 p.m. Starts: Oct. 19. Continues through Oct. 28, 2007
