The Haunting of Hill House - Beatniks

Beatniks On Conkey presents . . . the physic, the secret, the investigation, the scary and terrifying . . . you will jump out of your seat!!!!!

Okay, do I have your attention?

Don Taylor, director of this play, invited me to photograph the rehearsal for "The Haunting of Hill House".  This was a joy to watch and photograph.  Please know, the photographs that I will show are of the rehearsal a couple weeks before opening night . . . this was not a technical rehearsal.

This is a suspense drama by F. Andrew Leslie, from the novel by Shirley Jackson.  Based around the supernatural, and the small part of the play I witnessed, this is a real treat for us, for this coming Halloween.

Eleanor played by Mary DeBoer

Theodora played by Christine Murphy

Professor Montague played by Jeff Peterson

Luke played by Brandon Denton

Mrs. Montague played by Laurie Reyna

Arthur played by Wayne Puchkors

Mrs. Dudley played by Bonnie Johnson

Here are some early early photos of the play when it was being rehearsed.

Obviously I want you to go see this play.  The actors are great, along with the director, who all deserve our attention.  Support the arts in NW Indiana.  Support Beatniks!

Okay, I have been wanting to write this for some time.  I am a hippie/beatnik at heart:  The lama, the cat, of Beatniks is Rip Johnson.  He is off the wall and tuned in.  He is not a cube, but crazy man.  Beatniks is off the wall and has a beat about it, so do not miss out on this way out venue !
