Tales of the Crypt is an annual event at Little Rock's historic Mount Holly Cemetery. Although it happens close to Halloween, the focus of Tales of the Crypt is historical, not spooky.
Tour through the cemetery from grave to grave by candle light as drama students from Parkview Arts & Science Magnet High School, dressed in period costume, deliver short monologues or dialogues in front of their character's grave. The students have researched their characters' real lives, and the performances highlight the actual history of Little Rock and territorial Arkansas.
The Nineteenth Annual "Tales of the Crypt" is sponsored by the Mount Holly Cemetery Association and Parview Arts-Science Magnet High School.
Admission is free to the public, however donations to Mount Holly Cemetery are appreciated and aid in the maintenance of the cemetery.
