Haunting Ghost Stories kick off 28th season of Corner House Storytelling Dinners on Oct. 29!

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us! –traditional Scottish prayer

The Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich kicks off its 28th consecutive season of Storytelling Dinners with a GHOST STORY GALA on Thursday, Oct. 29th. Six different storytellers will be on hand to tell their favorite spine-tingling stories!

Appearing will be: White Mtn. storytellers Ed Fayle, Joan Veilleux, Marion Posner and Kate Vachon, central NH storyteller Lauretta Phillips, and seacoast area storytellers Mark Chamberlain and Shelley Hersey.

Ed Fayle (whose interest in the spirit world has created a special connection with “Clarence” – the Corner House resident ghost) has been recognized as a favorite storyteller in Mount Washington Valley for over a decade.

Joan Veilleux, a naturalist and sometime mountain guide from Brownfield ME, will be sharing tales about the New England wilderness and the sometimes scary creatures found within.

Marion Posner’s characters are often drawn from English, Irish, and Scottish lore, which reflect her own upbringing in the British Isles. A frequent participant at the Corner House’s storytelling dinners and the inn’s annual Robert Burns Night in January, Marion both narrates and plays the various characters that appear in her stories – often using local dialects. Marion will be joined in her tellings by Kate Vachon, whose sound effect talents embrace a most tuneful playing of the Turkey Baster…….

Lauretta Philips is the creator & host of “The Talking Stick”, a storytelling radio program at Colby-Sawyer College. A professional storyteller for the past two decades, her repertoire includes folk tales, legends, and some of her own very tall tales.

A native of the state of New Hampshire, Mark Chamberlain currently resides with his wife and thousands of honeybees who both, at times, become characters in his personal adventure stories. Besides his original stories, he loves to tell his own versions of traditional folktales and has been honing ghost stories this Fall in preparation of the Halloween season.

Shelley Hersey has been telling tales for over thirty years and is a member of LANES – the League for the Advancement of New England Storytellers. She is one of the core founders of The Seacoast Storytellers Guild. Scary stories are among her favorites to tell.

Each Corner House storytelling season begins the Thursday before Halloween, and continues on Thursday evenings through the end of May. Storytelling Dinners begin at 6:30 pm. The cost is $21.95 per person (plus tax and gratuity) and includes salad, entrée, glass of wine, dessert, and coffee. For reservations and more information regarding the program contact Don Brown at the Corner House Inn in Center Sandwich, NH. The phone number is 284-6219 and the email address is info@cornerhouseinn.com.
