Wolfe (The Colored Museum) and featuring musical narration composed by blues artist Chic Street Man, Spunk breathes new life into these three remarkable short stories from the Harlem Renaissance.

“Ghost Tours of Lawrenceville”
Aurora Theatre, LawrencevilleOCT 2014 EVERY NIGHT!
While Lawrenceville is the oldest city in the Atlanta metro area, for many years it was a sleepy suburban Southern town. With the growth and development of the metro area, at the turn of the century much of historic downtown was renovated. These renovations awakened the sleeping ghosts, and sparked increased reports of paranormal activity, thus setting the stage for Lawrenceville, GA Ghost Tours. Whether it is tales based on local legends handed down over the decades or recent paranormal investigations, our professional storytellers will regale you with stories that will send a chill down your spine. Come find out (if you dare) why Lawrenceville has the most popular ghost tour in the metro Atlanta area. Take the 90-minute scary stroll around the beautiful historic courthouse square and by storefronts restored to their turn-of-the-century charm.Sun through Thur 7:30pmFriday & Saturday at 7:00pm and 8:00pmRegular price $12.00 ~ AtlanTIX price $8.80 Tickets available NOW online and at the booth!
