Once again, Kelvin Keraga hosts an evening of creepy and chilling tales, told by some of the region’s best storytellers! Whispering Bones is a great mix of classic legends, new stories, and whispered folktales that are spooky, eerie, and fantastical. All proceeds from the show will go to help Hubbard Hall’s Arts Education Scholarship program. This program helps to ensure that no student at Hubbard Hall is ever turned away from a class based on financial limitations. This year’s featured cast includes: Siri Allison, Leila Bruske, Barbara Chepaitis, Margaret French, Tony Pallone, Doug Ryan, and Kelvin Keraga. Whispering Bones will be presented Friday, October 27 at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20 General Admission, $10 Students, and are available online at hubbardhall.org, by calling 518-677-2495, or at-the-door.
