Enjoy ‘Three Tales of Terror’ with the SMHS Panther Players

CROSSVILLE — “Three Tales of Terror,” Stone Memorial’s fall theatre production of three family-friendly one act plays, will haunt the SMHS stage on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7 p.m. for one night of horror only.

General admission tickets are $5, but those that arrive in costume will get $2 off the ticket price. That’s three dollars for an hour and a half of live entertainment! Although the entertainment is live, not all the characters will be so fortunate.

The first tale, “The Monkey’s Paw,” is an old favorite. Special Agent Morris (Garion Bogard) visits an old friend (Lewis Corum) and his family (Samantha Ellis and Skyler Martin) after his travels abroad. He brings with him a mummified monkey’s paw that grants three wishes. The first wish is for $30,000. The only catch is that the consequence of that wish has a frightening cost, and the second two wishes must be used to undo the harm.

“The Hand,” second on the list of the macabre, takes place in a reputably haunted house where the crabby housekeeper (Shelby Cook) warns her boss (Ty Smith) of the effects the house may have on the mounted

trophy of a human hand from one of his hunting trips to Egypt. You see, the hand wants to get back to its owner.

After a short intermission, where the audience will have a chance to calm their jangled nerves, the Panther Tales Players will conclude the evening with “Midnight Wax.” When a local journalist (Tori Harris) volunteers to spend the night in the Midgett sisters’ (Katie Cross and Blaze Brock) House of Wax, little does she realize it will be the last night of her life. Did the twin workers (MacKenzie Callaghan and Yanni Flake), the Midgett sisters, or the wax figures themselves do her in? That will be for you to decide.

Grab your costume and join the Panthers for an evening of fun and fright on Friday, Nov. 1, at 7 p.m. in the SMHS auditorium as the Panther Tales Players make your spine tingle and your hair stand on end with their

performance of “Three Tales of Terror.”
