The Haunted Homecoming Tour
By The Quail Bell Crew
What's the Quail Bell Crew doing tonight? Getting our hands on some cameras, that's what! We'll be shooting the rehearsal for the Edgar Allan Poe Haunted Homecoming Tour at Richmond, Virginia's historic Shockoe Hill Cemetery:
Okay, so you're probably wondering what that mouthful of a title even means. The Haunted Homecoming Tour is (pulled from the press release):
"A dramatic nighttime tour of Shockoe Hill Cemetery, based on the many loved ones of Edgar Allan Poe who are buried there. The tour is led by Poe himself, as he guides visitors through his old haunting grounds and interacts with the 'spirits' of those he knew while living in Richmond."
Basically, it's a lot of theatre, history, and eeriness all rolled into one. The first show takes place tomorrow at 8:30 p.m., with performances running through June 22nd. More at HauntsOfRichmond.com.
We're gathering footage for our next documentary, Richmond's Dead and Buried, which is all about the myths, legends, and realities of Richmond's cemeteries. Thanks to darlings like you, we reached our Kickstarter goal for the film not too long ago. We've been good about updating the film's Facebook page, as well. Now we're knee-deep in production! Shooting interviews, rifling through library archives, charming museum staff, etc. If you're really good, we might give you a sneak peek of our progress thus far. But you'll have to check back!
If you'll excuse us, we have to go get ready for a shoot!
