    Description: Fall is here, and according to anxious
    ghouls and goblins in Old Louisville, preparations are well underway for
    the Sixth Annual Victorian Ghost Walk, the Derby City’s premier ghost
    tour. For three days – on October 29, 30 and 31 – visitors are invited
    to enjoy the haunted past of one of the country’s grandest Victorian
    neighborhoods as spirits come back to life and share their eerie tales
    as told by local author David Dominé in his Ghosts of Old Louisville
    books.
    The Victorian Ghost Walk, a roughly 90-minute jaunt, features stops at
    many local landmarks mentioned in Dominé’s books. Sites include Floral
    Terrace, Central Park, Fountain Court, Millionaires Row, Central Park
    Bed and Breakfast and the Conrad-Caldwell House on St. James Court.
    Along the way, while strolling charming gas-lit streets and alleys,
    costumed guides and interpreters share ghostly stories and legends from a
    bygone era, and participants are invited inside a haunted home or two.
    Dominé himself will lead several of the groups, and other guides will
    include talented members of the Old Louisville Neighborhood. This
    production of the Victorian Ghost Walk is directed by Ronald Lew Harris,
    a respected director and actor in New York City for 30 years and a
    resident of Old Louisville.
    Tours form every 15 minutes at the Old Louisville Information Center
    1340 South 4th Street in Central Park on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday
    evenings. The first group departs at 6:00 pm and the last one at 7:30
    pm. Advance tickets are $20; day of the tour $25. For tickets and more
    information call 502-635-5244. Ticket proceeds will benefit the Old
    Louisville Neighborhood Council and the West St Catherine Neighborhood
    Association to support the mission of promoting and improving Old
    Louisville.

    Old Louisville enjoys a reputation as one of the nation’s largest
    Victorian neighborhoods, and it is rumored to be its most haunted as
    well. With well over a thousand stately mansions and opulent residences
    from the late 1800s and early 1900s, it’s hardly surprising that many
    Old Louisville homes come with their own resident haint. Visit http://www.oldlouisville.org for more Old Louisville information.

    This version of Frankenstein is neither a strict adaptation of the
    original novel nor an update of the Universal Pictures version made
    famous by Boris Karloff, but does pay homage to both sources. It is a
    retelling of Shelley’s story that preserves many of its overlooked
    aspects combined with important scientific and Philosophical themes
    relevant in today’s world.
    Set in the 1800s, it tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, scientist
    extraordinaire, who questions modern
    Science and dares to harness the power of creation in an obsessed search
    to end the suffering people
    experience at the loss of loved ones. Fueled by the loss of his own
    parents and aided by physician and
    Priest Father Patrick, Victor turns away from his remaining family and
    friends to madly search for the
    secret behind life and death. What is at first a noble cause quickly
    turns into a series of horrific events
    leading to nightmare and madness. It is a timeless story that becomes a
    cautionary tale of morality and
    mortality and poses questions that are as true today as they were two
    hundred years ago.
    The script is a collaboration of many years’ work by three local writers
    who set out to write a version that is populated by real characters and
    true horror. John Hetzel, an alumnus of Providence, is the Director and
    Timothy Brown is Assistant Director. Both are excited to bring this
    production to the region and can’t wait to bring a new alternative to
    those who enjoy frightening theatre. The cast and crew include many
    Providence graduates and promises Thrills and Chills as well as
    addressing thought provoking issues.
