A new mix of ghost stories

Performed by Dr. Erastus Betterov-Underhill and Friends

Whispering Bones is a mix of classic, creepy and comic ghost stories performed by a talented troop of performers.  This year Dr. Betterov-Underhill and Friends will present a new mix of stories, including campfire ghost stories, comic songs, and compelling works by lesser-known masters of the art, such as Vincent O’Sullivan, and will feature a performance of “The Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe. Dr. Erastus Betterov-Underhill will be on hand to promote his fine line of Dead People Products, such as his world-renowned Crème de Menthe Embalming Fluid.

This year Whispering Bones will be performed at venues throughout the region, including:  The Bennington Performing Arts Center, Bennington, Vermont; The First Congregational Church of Ashfield, Massachusetts, The Argyle Brewery in the Train Depot in Cambridge, NY; Fort Salem Theater in Salem, New York; and The Eighth Step, Schenectady NY (Dates and further information on venues below.)

“Some of the best ghost stories touch on social issues,” says Kelvin Keraga, producer for Whispering Bones.  “But they also touch us on a deep and personal level.  We witness people who encounter the unexpected and unexplainable, and respond with horror, greed, jealousy, sorrow, anger, or love.  Some stories are simply dances in the graveyard, with laughter and singing to remind us not to start digging our graves—at least not yet!”
