The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Shelton McMurphey Johnson House was built in 1888 and has been continuously occupied to present day.
Shelton McMurphey Johnson House is planning for the EUGFUN Coffin Races that are happening on October 27th right in front of our building.. We are looking for actors to impersonate Victorian Personalities (Edgar Alan Poe for instance) and interact with guests as they tour the house for the 4 hours of that event.
We will not have scripts available... Characters could quote/read from their personalities works or just interact with guests in character.. Actors would be assigned different rooms for guests to come upon. We are not trying to be a Haunted House, but we do want to emphasize the darker side of the Victorian period.... Locally known period personalities are welcome and would be fun!
Possible well known Victorian Personalities: Charles Dickens Elizabeth Barrett-Browning Winston Churchill Emily Dickenson Robert Browning Lord Byron Robert Frost Virginia Woolf W.B. Yates Christina Rossetti More suggestions: https://www.biographyonline.net/people/famous/victorians.html
