Special INDOOR reprise of past Voices of Valhalla performances

in the Florissant Civic Center Theatre

June 30, 2018  2:00 pm and 7:00 pm

Tickets on sale May 16, 2018

Echoes of Valhalla

The “Echoes of Valhalla” will be heard in the Florissant Civic Center Theatre and not in the cemetery this summer in a special “Best of Hawthorne” presentation on June 30, 2018 at 2:00 and 7:00 p.m.  Proceeds will benefit Hawthorne’s scholarship program.  Tickets are $15 and may be reserved by calling (314) 921-5678 or online HERE.


For the past eight years, the popular “Voices of Valhalla” events held each October have sold out within the first 24 hours.   Author and director Larry Marsh, says that “Echoes of Valhalla” will be a wonderful opportunity for folks who have been unable to get tickets in the past to see some of the very best performances given over the last eight years.  “The seats are a lot more comfortable in the Civic Center Theatre than on those hay wagons, and you won’t have to worry about rain or hay allergies!”


As in the outdoor hayride productions, leading actors from Hawthorne Players will bring to life the stories and times of people buried in the historic Valhalla Cemetery on St. Charles Rock Road.


The June 30th shows will include a deep sea diver, the owner of the “Southern Kitchen” restaurant, the most famous weatherman in the country, a Viet Nam hero, a detective who helped solve the “Crime of the Century” (the 19th century, that is), a comedian from the old Barn Theatre days, a girl who lived through the 1896 tornado, a Mizzou football standout, and a man who made a fortune selling patent medicines.


“We’ll have a range of characters from Boy Scouts to scoundrels, and you’ll learn a bit about St. Louis history, too,” says Marsh.
