Natural Awakenings - Alachua, Citrus, Marion, Sumter Co & The Villages, FL

A Stimulating Pre-Holloween Treat

The Matheson History Museum and Y-Not Theatre are bringing an original, immersive theatre experience, Halloween Moon Rising, to Gainesville from 7 to 9:30 p.m., October 25 and 26, with local actors directed by Paul Gabbard. This is an original work by Jacksonville playwright Kelby Siddons, and will be hosted at the Matheson History Museum. Proceeds benefit the museum and Y-Not Theatre. A buffet, alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages are included in the ticket price.


The play starts on the porch of the 1867 Matheson House and moves through three acts in different settings. Audience members participate in hunting for clues as they explore rooms inside the third-oldest house in the Gainesville area. Themed lighting and decorations enhance the chilling tale that comes to life in this unique theatrical experience.


Tickets, limited to 30 per show, are $50 in advance and $60 the week of the performance at or by snail mail. Location: 513 E University Ave., Gainesville. For more information, call 352-378-2280.
