Maudslay is Haunted

'Maudslay is Haunted' is an annual fundraiser for Theater in the Open at Maudsla

Maudslay is Haunted is a North Shore Kid favorite, and this year they are doing things a bit differently. Download the Maudslay is Haunted trail map at the Theater in the Open website, then bring your family to Maudslay State Park to enjoy a virtual self-guided haunting experience along the trail. We highly recommend this for Halloween fun for all ages because its spooky, and haunting, but not too scary. Join a cast of all ages for a one-hour walking tour through eerie vignettes, spooky sketches and haunting scenes, all in the autumn grandeur of Maudslay State Park.

Vered is an award winning musician who brings the joys and intricacies of family life to music.

Inspired by her experience as a music therapist and psychotherapist, and her experience as a mom of three, Vered approaches relationships in the family with wonder, curiosity, and humor. Her music is reminiscent of a Doo-Wop band, using playful vocal harmonies, lively horns, pots and pans, and beatboxing to get everyone jumping and singing along. Vered’s albums Good Morning My Love, Hello My Baby, and Songs for Sisters and Brothers all received prestigious awards. Parents often say that her music is like a soundtrack to life with their kids. “[O]ne big jazzy love song to childhood.” –Red Tricycle
