Meet a ghost ‘live’ on stage

Local theater troupe Our Town Players will present a classic comedy perfect for Halloween season.

Starting this weekend, the Franklin theater ensemble will perform “The Canterville Ghost” at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 23 to 24 and 30 to 31 and 2 p.m. Oct. 25 and Nov. 1 at the Franklin Active Adult Center, 160 E. Adams St., Franklin.

The classic Oscar Wilde story follows the Otis family, who move into a haunted house but aren’t the least perturbed by the antics of the house’s ghost, who tries scaring them in many ways including clanking chains and making mysterious bloodstains appear and disappear.

Tickets are $8 to $10 and available by emailing
