Linda Benson and Bruce Kelly of Stories at the Cemetery drop by Stage Talk this week to chat about all the fascinating characters that are brought to life in the Anchorage Memorial Park Cemetery.

And on August 12th, the event repeats with all the actors performing on a single stage. Thanks for listening!
