Two spooky tales for Provincetown Halloween

Provincetown Theater is offering both live and cinematic chills for Halloween night and the night before with a “Halloween Special” program that matches up a new play and a classic film.

The hourlong play is “The Water-Ghost of Harrowby Hall,” which Bragan Thomas has adapted for the stage from a 1889 short story by John Kendrick Bangs. Thomas says in an email that he’s updated the story to the late 1930s, expanded the characters of the Water-Ghost herself and the British aristocrat who is trying to put an end to his family’s curse and ghost, plus added characters called Lady Ravensdale and Jenkins.

This is the third original show that the Provincetown Theater Foundation, now celebrating its 10th anniversary, has presented in a full production after development in the Playwright’s Lab and being part of the Winter Readings series, according to Thomas. He will also star, along with Sunie Pope, Cindy Harrington and Bob Junker under Frank Vasello’s direction.

That show will be performed at 7 p.m. Oct. 30-31, followed by a horror film: On Oct. 30, that will be “Nosferatu”; on Halloween night, it’s “The Phantom of the Opera.” On Halloween, there will also be a costume contest, and the winner will get two tickets to the theater’s winter show of “Alice in Wonderland” and drinks.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, $25 for both nights. Tickets and information: 508-487-7487.
