Actors Needed for Cemetery Walk


Iowa City – The Johnson County Historical Society holds an Annual Cemetery Walk that involves having actors play the parts of figureheads from cemeteries across Johnson County. This year they have chosen to do St. Mary’s Newport south of Solon. They are looking for actors/students/volunteers who might like to play the part and tell the story of someone buried in the cemetery. This can involve as much as writing the scripts or as little as just playing the role. The date of the even it Sunday, October 9th from 5:30pm-8pm.

I saw one of these in Coralville not that long ago, though I’m not certain it was sponsored by the same organization. In any case, it was really interesting and lots of fun.
