MOUNT VERNON -- The Mount Vernon Players are hosting a creepy, yet fabulous, event this weekend.
The organization, the community's oldest continuously running volunteer theater troupe, is staging "Monster Family Reunion" at the Mount Vernon B&O Railway Depot, 507 W. High St.
Shows will be Friday and Saturday at 6:30 p.m. each evening.
Dinner will be provided by the Local Motion Food Truck with beverages available from Mount Vernon's Stein Brewing Company.
In the show, written by local writer Cathern Collier, numerous monsters come to town under the radar on Halloween to celebrate family, resulting in murder and mayhem.
"One can only hope there is a capable monster hunter around to keep things under control. Sadly, that's not the case for Mount Vernon this year. Come and help the Thornes figure out who the real monster is. They could be seated at your table. Maybe it's you," the Mount Vernon Players said in a press release.
