Voices from Eureka’s Silent City
First performances of the 2017 production of “Voices from Eureka’s Silent City” living history tours open on Thursday, October 19th, Friday and Saturday, October 20th and 21st, at the city cemetery, Hwy 62 East in Eureka Springs. Performances will repeat the following weekend on Friday and Saturday, October 27th and 28th.
You will be welcomed to the event by your genial host, Robert Ripley portrayed by Terry Miller, on board the tram taking you to the cemetery. There you will meet Joe Parkhill, as portrayed by Jon Loudermilk; Annie House, by Annunziata Scarpino; Chryesis Sanford, by Christie Braswell; Katie Morgan, by Ann Brittenum; Elna M. Smith by Joanie Kratzer; Ola Farwell by Chris Ritthaler; Robert Mullins, by Chuck Landis; and Norman Baker by Kent Turner, all in character and costume.
Equally entertaining guides on your tour include Stephanie Stodden, Elizabeth Loudermilk, Glenna Booth, Debbie Quigley Smith, Carolyn Green, Karen Pryor, Gayla Wolfinbarger and Alexa Pittenger. They not only provide introductions to the residents of the evening’s tours but other historical information about the cemetery and about Eureka Springs.
Tours begin at 5:30 PM and every twenty minutes thereafter, with the last one at 8:30 PM. Tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under.
Tickets may be obtained in advance at the Eureka Springs Historical Museum, Chamber of Commerce and all Cornerstone Bank locations, or may be purchased on-site at the tour. Free parking and shuttle service at the former Victoria Inn, located at 4028 E. Van Buren, Eureka Springs. Look for signs. There is no parking at the cemetery.
