About: Tales of the Supernatural

Diane opens up the doors to the supernatural with this riveting performance of true tales & folkloric stories including “Twilight of the Stones” a true ghost story about the eerie force that emanates from the standing stones of Avebury, England and “Feline Terror” in which every Halloween superstition comes home to roost. Black cats abound in this cautionary tale for pet-lovers as Diane battles the neighborhood Tom-cat bully amidst the local trick or treat parade. Fun, frightening and a wee bit historical “Tales of the Supernatural” has a decidedly Celtic slant, delving into the Gaelic folktales behind our Halloween customs including the devilish encounter that created the first Jack O’Lantern.

“Your Halloween tale is truly a work of art. I love to watch you go from that sweet, sweet old lady to that cigar-chompin’ dockworker who talks out of the side of his face. You do it in the twinkling of an eye, and during that twinkling, you play the harp!! I could watch you do that piece 10 or 15 times in a row!!” Carolyn Martino, event producer, Rhode Island

This performance is sponsored by the Erving Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
