Also featuring the terrors of upcoming apps like Poke-Cupid, Sonic the Hedgehog Go and Grand Theft Auto Go, this hilarious and flexible play is the perfect warning for these dark times.
Tales of the Crypt
Parkview Arts/Science Magnet High School brought Arkansas history to life on October 11, 2016 with its 22nd annual presentation of Tales of the Crypt at Mount Holly Cemetery. Under the direction of drama teacher Tamara Zinck, selected drama students were each assigned one of Mount Holly’s interred to portray. The students then wrote a monologue or duet scene based on their research. Local costume designer Debi Manire createed historically accurate costumes for each character. Student tour guides then escorted groups from gravesite to gravesite while educating them about the cemetery’s 173 year history.
Mount Holly Cemetery is located at 1200 South Broadway in Little Rock, Arkansas. Admission was free to the public; however donations to Mount Holly Cemetery are always appreciated. More information about the event can be found at www.mounthollycemetery.com. We hope you will join us next year on the second Tuesday in October for another wonderful presentation.

Frankenstein’s Creepy Crawly Creation Convention
Clues, clues, and more clues led participants to the identity of the culprit at the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas History on September 29th through October 1st this year.
Parkview’s murder mystery dessert theatre, written by theatre students, Harrison Wyrick & Cooper Sikes, was far from typical theatre as it allowed the audience to become characters in the performance in this interactive experience. At the door, participants were given character names and a short character description so they could interact or sit back and watch the story unfold.
