Hawthorne Players Again Present ‘Voices of Valhalla’

“Voices of Valhalla”  will be heard again this year when Hawthorne Players and Valhalla Cemetery and Chapel present a “Hayride Through Time” at Valhalla Cemetery on St. Charles Rock Road.  Performances will be on Friday and Saturday evenings, Oct. 5, 6, 12, 13 beginning at 7 p.m. Wagons will leave every 15 minutes taking passengers on a non-scary hayride, stopping along the way for Hawthorne actors to portray a number of interesting characters who are interred on the grounds.

 

Audiences will first gather in the beautiful Mausoleum and will be greeted by Helen Zell, one of the founders of Valhalla 100 years ago.  They will then board wagons for a one-hour journey through the cemetery, where they will meet the last of P.T. Barnum’s “Swiss Bell Ringers,” feuding business partners, a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient, the creator of the “Old St. Louis” exhibit at the 1904 World’s Fair, an African-American businesswoman, a victim of the Chicago Iroquois Theatre fire, and more.  The production was written and directed by Larry Marsh.

 

Tickets are $15 and should be reserved in advance by calling 314 863-3011 during regular business hours.  Last year’s production was a sell-out and tickets are going fast this year.   More information can be found at www.hawthorneplayers.com
