Ghosts of Mechanicsburg
Synopsis: The borough’s motto is “Mechanicsburg: A good place to live.” Evidently, with the multitude of haunted houses in the downtown, Mechanicsburg is also a good place to die. So good, seventeenth and eighteenth-century residents are still . . . residents! Ghosts of Mechanicsburg is a collection of fictional vignettes based on facts unearthed in Mechanicsburg Museum Association archives and inspired by real-life experiences of twentieth and twenty-first century homeowners.
Genre: Drama and comedy
Theme: Halloween and a town’s history: a great combination
Production History: Since October 1997, Ghosts Of Mechanicsburg has been performed on the stage of Little Theatre of Mechanicsburg (PA) numerous times as the theatre’s way to celebrate Halloween. Productions have always been sold out, attracting people of all backgrounds and ages. The theatre was also asked to stage the reading in two other venues (Art Center School and Galleries of Mechanicsburg and a gift shop, Susan’s Treasures). Independent of the theatre, Cindy has taken Ghosts Of Mechanicsburg on the road.
