Press Release by: Amber Houston-ECB Publishing -Staff Writer
            The Monticello Opera House will hold its first annual Spooktoberfest to benefit the Colin Rolfe Scholarship for the Arts.

The Spooktoberfest will include karaoke, ghost stories, dancing, a cash bar, costume contest, a yodeling contest, and featured craft beer from Growler Country.          

Linda Ford will be the storyteller for the evening, offering a couple of her choicest scary stories. Be ready for a scare! According to her biography, “she began telling stories professionally in 1981 and has developed a repertoire of American folktales, Women’s stories, ghost stories and Nature tales. For several years, she was the lead guide/storyteller at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery, where she had the thrill of telling The Legend of Sleepy Hollow to crowds gathered around Washington Irving’s burial plot. (Sometimes the Headless Horseman would appear!)

“L. Schuyler Ford is a member of The Florida Storytelling Association, The National Storytelling Network, MassMouth, and The Healing Story Alliance. She is the founder of The Big Bend Storytellers’ Circle.”

Karaoke will include stars like you, dear reader. An hour into the evening— when tongues are whetted by wine, beer, craft beer, and mixed drinks—organizers will open up the karaoke queue. Be sure to get in on the action: it is no secret that Jefferson county has some stellar voices!

For the costume contest, it is encouraged to stick with the Oktoberfest theme, however all costumes are welcome. Additionally, the costume contest will include any type of costume. Prizes include free show tickets, free drinks, and more.

The real star of the show will be whoever wins the yodeling contest. Channel your inner German and win free drinks and serious bragging rights.

Overall it will be a very fun night. The best part, though is that it benefits Jefferson County residents who want to attend classes, workshops, lessons or other learning opportunities in the arts. The Colin Rolfe Scholarship began in 2011 to help Jefferson County residents of all ages pursue education in the arts: proceeds will benefit the scholarship.
