Jacquelina Wiegers, a Grade 12 drama student at Kensington Intermediate Senior High school, doesn't normally look so spooky but she's getting ready to perform the introduction narrative for the school's production of "The Haunted Hallways". This is being presented at the school this evening beginning at 5 p.m.
"Haunted Hallways" tells the story of KISH and what really happens each year on Halloween after the school board asks staff and students to be out of the school by 4 p.m. The storyline is written around what happens after 4 p.m. as well as the historical facts about the school's many renovations.
"KISH is a very old school," states Carolyn Black, playwright and school counsellor at KISH. "It has many areas that have been used in ways that are different than they were originally used for. It was easy to write a storyline that wrapped around this building whose first graduates date back to as early as 1955. There are even some areas that we've included in the story that are now hidden areas."
The performance takes place this (Friday) evening. There is a scaredy cat version from 5 to 6:30 p.m. for the faint of heart, followed by a spookier version with more surprises for those who can tolerate greater horrors.
Proceeds for this event go to a KISH student who has recently had surgeries at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Everyone is invited to come hear the spooky stories of Kensington Intermediate Senior High School.
