Forest Home Cemetery: Spirits of the Silent City
2405 West Forest Home Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53215
Forest Home Cemetery and Caper Company presents an immersive after-dark experience with professional actors portraying residents of Milwaukee’s oldest, largest cemetery.
This October 20th -22nd, some of Forest Home Cemetery’s most notable residents will slip through the veil separating the living and the dead to settle some Unfinished Business. Visitors will be guided through graveside scenarios to learn some stories from the Silent City – and help some tortured souls find peace. We’re in this together!
Meet Mrs. Wright, the eccentric second wife of Frank Lloyd Wright; Dr. Laura Ross Wolcott, the state’s first female physician; Ezekiel Gillespie, the black man who helped secure suffrage rights for African Americans in this state; a bickering group of beer barons– and many more!
Despite the spooky silhouettes of tombstones and the cemetery’s canopy of trees, this after-dark event is designed to entertain and enlighten – not frighten!
There are only three nights for performances – tickets are limited and will likely sell-out!
