“Tales From Monmouth, Maine” is the third annual Fall production presented by Monmouth Community Players from Oct. 21-23 in the Monmouth Cemetery. The script for the show is adapted from “Beneath This Ground”  by Dr. Larry Buggie, with original monologues written by MCP board member Jane Mitchell. In his book, Buggie brings to life the stories of those buried within the Monmouth Cemetery. MCP’s adaptation of Buggie’s book pieces together some of these tales from beyond in an intriguing stroll through the very cemetery where they are buried.

The show is directed by Ray Fletcher, and publicity is being handled by Josie French. This years cast of specters includes: Jane Mitchell as Susan Gray; Jeanne Fletcher as Lizzie Frost; Charlotte Morin as Carrie Dodd; Karen Lipovsky as Marguerite Marston; Jocelyn Curtis as Nettie Porter; Steve Miller as Benjamin Ellis; Andy Tolman as Joseph Allen; Tony Morin as Lot Sturtevent; Jake Junkins as Asa Clough; and Ray Fletcher as Harry Cochrane.

The show, despite its ghostly nature, is appropriate for all ages, though some content is a bit dark.

Performances will be in the Monmouth Cemetery, starting at Cumston Hall,  from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, and Saturday, Oct. 22;  and 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 23. Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door.
