Do ghosts and spirits really haunt the former Lake County Poorhouse? Come take a walk through the long dark corridors with nothing but a candlelight to illuminate the way. Escape into the past as our guides provide you with an eerie yet fun-filled adventure! You'll visit all the locations around the Lake County History Center where shadows and ghostly figures have said to have been sighted. You'll go to off-limits areas where many have reported hearing creepy sounds and feeling unseen hands touch them. You'll hear stories of unbelievable historically documented events that have taken place in the past, including those in the infirmary and attic. And, we'll even visit the foreboding cells used in the bygone days of the Lake County Poorhouse. We will demonstrate and you may borrow "ghost hunting" equipment, such as EMF detectors and dowsing rods, while on your tour! (or bring your own equipment – paranormal activity has been documented many times on previous explorations of the LCHS)

Silent Film Jekyll & Hyde with Dorothy Papadakos
Sunday, October 29, 4:00pm
Stambaugh Auditorium, 1000 Fifth Ave., Youngstown, 330-259-0555
Budding from the story written by Robert Louis Stevenson, this 1920 film follows the actions of Dr. Henry Jekyll. His enthusiasm for science and his idealist, philanthropic behavior made Dr. Jekyll an admired man. After being criticized for his reluctance to experience the sensual side of life, he thought “Wouldn’t it be marvelous if the two natures in man could be separated.” He developed a potion that would do just that, creating the hideously evil creature whom he names Edward Hyde. Jekyll begins to live his double life, but it is not long before the personality of Hyde begins to dominate. Dorothy Papadakos is a member of the seven-time Grammy Award-winning Paul Winter Consort. She came to international attention as the first woman to be Cathedral Organist of the world’s largest gothic cathedral, the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, from 1990 to 2003. She is celebrated for her daring and imaginative improvisations as well as her scores for theatre, film, television and ballet.

THE HUMANS

Stephen Karam's The Humans is an uproarious, hopeful, and heartbreaking play that takes place over the course of a family dinner on Thanksgiving. Breaking with tradition, Erik Blake has brought his Pennsylvania family to celebrate and give thanks at his daughter's apartment in Lower Manhattan. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex and eerie things start to go bump in the night, the Blake clan's deepest fears and greatest follies are laid bare. Our modern age of anxiety is keenly observed, with humor and compassion, in this new American classic that won the 2016 Tony Award® for Best Play.
