Sure to get you in the Halloween mood, Theatre-Hikes' Resurrected brings five of Chicago's spookiest tales to life. With this trademark on-location performance, Theatre-Hikes takes advantage of the Pullman State Historic Site's eerie atmosphere, exploring the grounds as these macabre yarns play out. Three musicians will also be along for the walk and will set the mood. You'll see one of Chicago's most famous ghost legends: Resurrection Mary, an otherworldly woman in white who has been hitching rides since the 1930s. You'll go behind the legend of Hull House, a settlement home for recent immigrants, which supposedly had a demonic child locked in the attic. Then there's the mystery of Julia Petta, known as the Italian Bride, who died while giving birth to a stillborn son and was disinterred six years later, revealing an uncannily preserved corpse. You'll also see the story of Francis Levy, the firefighter whose handprint remained on the window of the fire house for 20 years after he died in a blaze. And of course, no tour of Chicago's dark past would be complete without the disturbing true story of H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer (as detailed in the best-seller The Devil in the White City). Learn More

I love this method of story telling. You need to advise that along w/water and comfortable shoes, a blanket or chair is useful. It was a bit difficult to hear in spots. The production was very creative and easy to interpret if you know the story. Perhaps a synopsis would be helpful although I understand the paperless issue. Will be back for the October production.
Run time of play is 90 minutes, with the hikes in between scenes. The show should be no more than 2 hours 30 minutes.
Please bring your own water. Theatre-Hikes also suggests bringing a picnic or snacks along for the hike. Wear comfortable hiking shoes or boots (avoid open toe shoes and flip-flops).
About the Ticket Supplier: Theatre-Hikes
Theatre-Hikes – “Environment, Exercise and Entertainment.”
We perform family friendly productions outdoors with scenes separated by short hikes. Each show contains a hike around 2 miles separated by 3-10 scenes.
The specific purposes for which Theatre-Hikes is formed are for establishing and maintaining theatrical performances combined with hiking, offering an event that travels to various locations; and as most performing will be outdoors, Theatre-Hikes hopes to nurture in the public, a respect for the preservation of hiking trails and the local, city, county, state and national parks where these trails can be found. Theatre-Hikes will seek to involve diverse populations in its staff, board members, volunteers and audiences. It will have a strong commitment to use actors who are members of Actors’ Equity Association (AEA), the union of professional actors and stage managers. Theatre-Hikes will compensate all staff and actors who are not members of AEA.
