Do you like being scared?

In less than a few weeks, “Hector’s Haunted Happenings, Mysterious Dinner and Ghost Walk” will be staged for two consecutive evenings in downtown Vernon.

Every year, the Jennings County High School drama club assists Jennings County Historical Society in putting fright into the nights.

The club’s actors bring the Ghost Walk, where visitors witness scenes of local tales of suspense and the supernatural, to life.

The legends change annually, with the exception of “Bloody Mary,” which is traditionally performed by drama club seniors. “Bloody Mary” will be directed by Mason Smith and Michelle Risacher.

Other legends include “Unwanted Angel,” directed by Katie White; “The Stranger,” directed by Kylan Higgs; “She Ran While She Could,” directed by Gates Galloway; and “Murders in Morristown, New Jersey,” directed by Nickole Harmon.

The Vernon Ghost Walk is Oct. 12-13. The guided tours will leave the Historical Society’s museum every 20 minutes from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $3. Children younger than 10 are admitted for $2.

While proceeds will go to the Historical Society, optional donations will be accepted for Trick-or-Treat so Tots Can Eat, a charity that provides food to the St. Vincent Jennings Hospital food bank.

The Mysterious Dinner will be held on at 6 p.m. Oct. 12. The event will be repeated twice Oct. 13, at 5 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.

Tickets are $15 per person for the dinner or $16 per person for dinner and Ghost Walk. Since seating is limited, tickets must be purchased in advance for the dinners.

Reservations and ticket purchases for the dinner must be confirmed by Oct. 9. No reservations are necessary for the Ghost Walk.

To reserve tickets, contact the museum at 346-8989.
