  • "Tales of the Crypt" is Tuesday afternoon at Mount Holly Cemetery.

5:30-8:30 p.m. Mount Holly Cemetery. Free (donations accepted).

It's that time of year again, when Mount Holly Cemetery comes to life as students from Parkview Magnet School portray some of the notable historical figures whose final resting place has been dubbed "the Westminster Abbey of Arkansas."

According to a press release, this year's presentation will feature 20 student actors "recreating the lives of Arkansans who have helped shape Little Rock's history. The students have researched each character and prepared original scripts for the performance under the direction of Fred Boosey and Tamara Zinck. Award-winning local costumer Debi Manire will once again provide the wonderful historical characters' costumes."

This year's Tales is dedicated to the late Susan Barham, the Parkview teacher who originated the event and who died last year. Although admission is free, you should probably do a solid for the historic cemetery and make a donation.
