Downtown Playhouse to Stage “The Woman in Black”

WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. – Just in time for Halloween, The Downtown Playhouse in Pocahontas will stage “The Woman in Black” this fall. The thriller will debut on Oct. 28 and have a special performance on Halloween night, and it will then run through November.

It was there he caught sight of the woman in black, a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. Anyone who sees the woman dies.

The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night.

The production is sponsored by Anderson Refrigeration of Pocahontas, a certified Trane dealer, and it is directed by Kelly Grooms.

Dessert and a beverage are included in the cost of admission. Dessert offerings include: Double Coconut Creme Pie, Hershey’s S’mores Creme Pie, Cinnamon Apple Pound Cake and Sugar-Free JELLO Parfait.
