On August 5, 2011 Stories at the Cemetery provided a self-guided walk through Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery, featuring presentations by costumed actors at ten pre-selected grave sites.
The event was the result of a collaboration between Rob Jones, Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery Director; Bruce and Audrey Kelly, historians and Linda Benson, theatrical director.
Townsquare49.org sent our mobile video crew to capture the action. Here’s the first installment, featuring local actor Richard Benavides as Milton Hamilton, an Anchorage resident killed by the famous Russian Jack.
The program could not have been done without the help of: Ruth Quinlan, Bruce Kelly, Christie Benson, Elisa Hitchcock, Storyteller’s Guild of Anchorage, Cyrano’s Theatre Company, and Anchorage Community Theatre.
