'Phantoms & Fire' brings spooky fun to Coggeshall Farm

Posted

Phantoms & Fire brings a new twist to the Halloween season at Coggeshall Farm Museum (CFM), with a series of haunting outdoor performances and seasonal activities for all ages. Phantoms & Fire offers guests a safe take on the Halloween season, following the restrictions set forth by COVID-19. 

A cornerstone of the new event is "Nevermore," a series of six outdoor performances written and directed by P.J. Griffith, specifically for Coggeshall Farm Museum and partner Old Sturbridge Village. "Nevermore" welcomes a professional cast to the Farm to bring to life the short stories and poems of author Edgar Allen Poe. The stories will play out simultaneously in six different locations around the Farm and tell familiar tales of horror, revenge, obsession and deception. Performances will be repeated throughout the night in pulsating rhythm - just like Poe's tell-tale, beating heart - ensuring that visitors can see and experience them all, with The Headless Horseman making appearances throughout the Farm.

Younger guests will delight in a new 2020 version of Trick-or-Treat at the Farm, called "Clues & Candy." Making their way throughout the commons, families can collect clues that will lead them to a big bag of goodies at the end of their visit! Participation in "Clues & Candy" is open to all ages. Costumes are encouraged at the event, but COVID-safe facemasks must still be worn in following state and local guidelines.

  Tickets for Phantoms & Fire are on sale now for $16 per adult and $12 for youth ages 4-17. Children under 4 are free to the Farm during this event. Phantoms & Fire will take place Sunday, Oct. 25 and Sunday, Nov. 1 with three times for arrival at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. More details on the Coggeshall event can be found at: https://www.coggeshallfarm.org/event/phantoms-and-fire/.
