I am remounting my piece ‘Crooked River, Crooked Tales’ on October 27!

Studio Z: 275 East Fourth Street, Suite 200, St. Paul
$15 / $10 students & seniors / $40 festival pass

Zeitgeist’s Halloween Festival takes over Studio Z for four days of haunting sounds, bone-chilling new commissions, spine-tingling storytelling, and the return of Crocus Hill Ghost Story, a macabre tale of a house possessed created by composer/flutist Julie Johnson, writer Cheri Johnson, and filmmaker/actor D.J. Mendel.
