Spine chilling scares abound during Lawrenceville Ghost Tours this October

Aurora Theatre to host annual spooktacular event series for thrill seekers of all ages

Screams of fun are in store this fall during Aurora Theatre’s Lawrenceville Ghost Tours, spooking Atlanta audiences all month long! Costumed storytellers will bring accounts of historical haunts and paranormal activity to life during a 90-minute guided stroll around the picturesque downtown square, giving the living a look at Lawrenceville’s hair-raising past. Free of grotesque effects and startling of patrons, metro-Atlanta’s most popular ghost tour features vivid storytelling to portray the mysterious myths and legends of a moonlit walk through Honest Alley, the haunted jail and other devilish destinations.

“When we first produced the Lawrenceville Ghost Tours 12 years ago, we hoped to launch an event that would be just as much educational as it would be entertaining,” said Anthony Rodriguez, Aurora Theatre Producing Artistic Director. “By combining historical elements from Lawrenceville’s past with the spooky element of a night time stroll through a dark alley, we’ve created a tradition that’s just as fun for adults as it is for kids.”

The third annual Haunted Cemetery Tour is a ghoulishly good time for courageous souls seeking an extra fright, October 9-31! Hailed for its eerie encounters with EVP (electronic voice phenomena) and floating orbs, thrill seekers will follow Madame Macabre (Cynthia Rintye) through tombstone paths as she recounts her own chilling tale that inspired this tour! Guests should wear closed-toe shoes, bring a flashlight and be at least 13-years-old to participate; a signed release form will be required for every attendee.

Lawrenceville Ghost Tours is presented every day in October with the Haunted Cemetery Tour happening October 9-31.
