Sat­ur­day’s Fea­tured Music is… MUSICALS!

Sun­day, Octo­ber 16, 1:30pm — Sean­chai Library presents “The Hal­loween Tree” — Pt 1

Sean­chai Library presents Ray Brad­bury’s The Hal­lowe’en Tree in Part I of a three-part live reading.
A group of eight boys set out to go trick-or-treat­ing on Hal­loween, only to dis­cov­er that a ninth friend, Pip­kin, has been whisked away on a jour­ney that could deter­mine whether he lives or dies. Through the help of a mys­te­ri­ous char­ac­ter named Cara­pace Clav­i­cle Mound­shroud, they pur­sue their friend across time and space through Ancient Egypt­ian, Greek, and Roman cul­tures, Celtic Druidism, Notre Dame Cathe­dral in Medieval Paris, and The Day of the Dead in Mex­i­co. Along the way, they learn the ori­gins of the hol­i­day that they cel­e­brate, and the role that the fear of death, ghosts, and the haunts has played in shap­ing civ­i­liza­tion. The Hal­loween Tree itself, with its many branch­es laden with jack‑o’-lanterns, serves as a metaphor for the his­tor­i­cal con­flu­ence of these traditions.
