Just in time for All Hallows' Eve, the North Fork Community Theatre (NFCT), Mattituck-Laurel Historical Society, and the Mattituck Presbyterian Church will once again co-host a series of Historical Graveyard Tours.

"We are excited to partner again with other local community groups to share the history of the North Fork," Mary Motto Kalich, North Fork Community Theatre Treasurer, expressed.

On Saturday, October 24, tour-goers will visit the grave sites of notable Mattituck historical figures that are buried in the graveyard next to the NFCT. The experience will begin with a brief history of the theater, which was once a church, from Motto Kalich. Six "widow guides" donning Victorian mourning attire will lead the tours and there will also be costumed actors portraying some of the historical figures.

"The NFCT is looking forward to this opportunity to perform and entertain others in a safe outdoor environment. We miss live theater!" Motto Kalich added.

Tours will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Masks are required and social distancing will be observed. Tickets, which are $20, must be purchased in advance. Proceeds will support the Mattituck Historical Society, the Mattituck Presbyterian Church Graveyard restoration committee and the North Fork Community Theatre. The rain date is Sunday, October 25.

North Fork Community Theatre is located at 12700 Old Sound Avenue in Mattituck. For more information, visit www.nfct.com.
