On the 'Graveyard Shift': Museum L-A raising goosebumps, funds


Mike Miclon to read
Stephen King story
set in old Maine mill 

LEWISTON — Join Museum L-A for “Graveyard Shift,” an evening event based on a short story by Stephen King, featuring a young worker who discovers a horrible secret in the basement of a decrepit Maine Mill. The event is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 20, from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at Museum L-A.

With his many theatrical skills and creative talents, Mike Miclon of Buckfield will give a dramatic reading that will bring a level of intimidating scariness that is not for the faint of heart. The stories contain mild language and are more suited to an adult audience. This is a PG-13 event.

Come early for short-and-scary tours of the mill, where you will explore hidden parts of the mill and hear more frightening and gruesome stories from the past. These tours will run every 15 minutes from 7 to 8 p.m. The reading by Miclon begins at 8.

Before, during and after the performance, guests can enjoy seasonal refreshments and a cash bar.

The cost is $15 per person which includes tours, performance and refreshments. Limited seating is available. Advance reservations are encouraged; call 207-333-3881.

Net event proceeds will support the creation of Museum L-A’s Kids’ Innovation Station, which will offer children an opportunity to learn through play. Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event; contact Kathy Becvar, director of development. 

 Museum L-A’s hours of operation are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Special tour requests and large-group tours outside of these hours are available by appointment.

 Museum L-A is currently located in the Bates Mill Complex,  35 Canal St. FMI:  [email protected] or call 207-333-3881.
