Dr. Betterov-Underhill, aka Kelvin Keraga, will host the show, promoting his line of Dead People Products, such as his world-renowned Crème-de-Menthe embalming fluid. The show features talented actors and storytellers, including Siri Allison, Barbara Chepaitis, Jeannine Haas, and Mary Murphy. For hundreds of years storytellers have taken us by the hand and led us into old houses filled with apparitions: phantoms woven from memories and dreams and the dark core of our humanity. These tales are explorations of our souls, where characters cross the line between life and death, caught in situations that often draw out their deepest feelings. The supernatural teaches us what is natural: frailty and strength, loss and recovery. Come mingle with the spirits. Limited reserve table seating at $10 for Adults; Children under 12, $5. Tickets at Bones.brownpapertickets.com or at Argyle Brewing.
