MEREDITH — Have you heard the tale of Mad Herman and how he haunts the waters of Winnipesaukee, luring people to an untimely death?
This "Tale of the Lake" will guide guests along the path to the Lodge at Geneva Point Center in Moultonborough for The Winnipesaukee Playhouse's annual Masquerade Gala. This year's theme, "It was a Dark and Stormy Night", ensures that witches, ghosts and ghouls will be making their command performances on Saturday, October 19 at 7 p.m. In addition to great food, dancing and a silent auction, the adult-only event will feature chills, thrills and spooky surprises.
Events Committee Chair Maren Boothby says, "There are lots of Halloween-themed events for kids but this is a chance for adults to dress up and have some Halloween fun while supporting the performing arts in the Lakes Region."
The event includes a buffet dinner of harvest foods from 7-9 p.m. followed by dancing from 9-11 p.m. There will be a cash bar and silent auction items are available.
Tickets cost $75 per person for general admission. Advanced reservations are required and are available at www.winnipesaukeeplayhouse.orgor (603) 279-0333. Reserved tables of eight are available for the price of seven general admission tickets at $525. All proceeds support the arts and education programming at The Winnipesaukee Playhouse.
The event is made possible through the generous support of principal sponsors Bonnette, Page and Stone along with Gold Sponsors AutoServ and Meredith Village Savings Bank. Additional support is provided by Granite State Glass.
