OSWEGO — Oswego Playhouse is heading into its second and final weekend of “Bonfire Stories (or the Goblins will Getcha),” a unique storytelling experience celebrating fall and Halloween.

Stories feature classics by Edgar Allan Poe and Tod Robbins, plus the Witches scene from Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” For the younger members of the audience, there are selections from the Goosebumps stories and a zombie sketch.

Cast members include: Regis Snyder, Katrina Gentry, and Abby Kennedy from Batavia; Tom Rieser from North Aurora; Beth Goncher and Jill Orr from Aurora; Jeannine Collins of Carol Stream; and Ryan Morton of Yorkville. Jacquie Weirich of Oswego directs the production.

“Bonfire Stories” is suitable for junior high age and older. Admission is $5.

Audience members are encouraged to dress up in their favorite scary costume. Prizes will be awarded. Audience members should bring their own lawn chair, marshmallows and a roasting stick.

In the event of rain, the show will go on with the performance moving inside Village Hall.
