Local story tellers sharing spooky stories will be Stan Beacham, LaRee Jones, Susie Nilsson, and Adele Tolley Wilson. All of the spooky stories are family friendly and will allow all to enjoy an evening of live story telling.
Stan Beacham discovered the world of storytelling in the 1990’s. With storytelling, he found the perfect way to combine his speaking and performing skills with his love for music. Through this medium started the Dixie Chapter of the Utah Storytelling Guild and served as its president for several years. He has also taught writing and storytelling workshops to school and church groups and a storytelling course for adults and one for children in conjunction with Dixie State College Community Education.
Stan will be sharing the story "The Bigfoot Scare of Washington County" and will recite the poem (song by Jim Stafford) "Swamp Witch."
Adele Tolley Wilson is a retired elementary teacher who is currently employed by Dixie State University. Teaching provided her with numerous opportunities to write programs, scripts, tributes, stories, songs and poems. Adele will be telling stories geared for kids. Stories will include “Bobo and the Bones”, “The Monster in the Basement”, and “The Ghost with the Two White Eyes”.
Dixie Teller LaRee Jones will tell the stories "The Revenge of the Tommy Knockers" and
"The Haunting of a Dead Man".
The Utah Storytelling Guild is a membership organization preserving, promoting, and practicing the art of storytelling throughout Utah and beyond.
Celebrate the spooky season at the St. George Opera House on October 26 for an evening of good, old family fun and spine tingling chills as only The Haunting can present.
