2012 Ghost Walk

(Raindate - Sunday October 28, 2012 at 5:30pm)
Eden Woolley House, 703 Deal Road, Ocean, NJ 07712​

It will be all treats and no tricks as the Ocean Township Library’s Turner Gallery is transformed into a former Asbury Park USO building for a simulated “Camp Show” broadcast, circa 1944, on radio station WCAP—the Wonderful City of Asbury Park!

Mrs. Phoebe Woolley, 18th century matriarch of the Woolley family, has once again invited spectral guests from the Township’s past to help celebrate her 280th birthday this Halloween! Mrs. Woolley is the wife of Mr. Thomas Woolley Jr., of whom began construction on ... the Eden Woolley House in 1747. Many otherworldly apparitions have accepted her invitation and are in the midst of planning a festive occasion! They will regale visitors with their tales of old, and celebrate with a “spirited” USO style show, complete with music, entertainment, and refreshments!

Join us as we listen and sing along to popular songs from the WWII era performed by Gilda Healy and Barry Rosensweig, volunteers from Brookdale Community College’s Center for WWII Studies and Conflict Resolution. A dance team from the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Manasquan will put us “In the Mood”, swing-style. A popular comedy routine, advertisements and station identifications will evoke the spirit of old-time radio, all in an intimate performance space. Members of the New Jersey Antique Radio Club, Info Age (at the former Camp Evans site) are lending their classic radios as well as their expertise in order to make this a memorable evening that is sure to delight youngsters as well as the young at heart.

Call the Museum 732-531-2136 to reserve a spot. Adults $7, children $3.   (Raindate - Sunday October 28, 2012 at 5:30pm)
