Storytelling Orillia invites you to our next story circle, called SIDE BY EACH. It might be ghostly or a little ghastly, but we will hear some spooky Orillia stories from special guest tellers and then you are welcome to join in with a story of your own. Who knows what other tales of Orillia’s spirits might come to life…?
We are intrigued by our guest teller, David Fanstone, who was manager of the Opera House for many years. He will tell stories about the Opera House Spirits. As an extra treat, Christine Spear, who grew up in Orillia, will also tell stories about various spirits and their tricks; expanding on her story entitled “The Witch”, which was published in “Mariposa Exposed”, and also telling about hunting spirits at St. Columbkille’s Church in Uptergrove.
In addition, SO’s Tim Greenwood will share a ghost story from Stephen Leacock, called “Buggam Grange: A Good Old Ghost Story”.
