Halloween Extravaganza and Procession of the Ghouls
Friday, October 26, 7 pm and 10 pm
Procession of the Ghouls, Following a Screening of Nosferatu (1922)
Halloween will be infused with eerie energy this year, as organist Timothy Brumfield plays the Great Organ to accompany a screening of the original Nosferatu (1922) and Ralph Lee and the Mettawee River Theater Company’s ghosts and ghouls lead the procession through the Cathedral. The full stretch of the nave is at the disposal of Mr. Lee’s fantastic creatures of the night, and visitors are encouraged to brace themselves for increased ghostly mischief and ghoulish tricks. Seats closest to the action are for the bravest at heart, who may find themselves directly confronted with the hooked, expressive nose of a demon, the mossy nails of a witch, or the bulging, flushed cheeks of a ghostly manchild.
Tickets are $20.
