Guests entered the performance with a glimpse of the original Arlington Hotel's guest book.
NARROWSBURG — While aliens and wizards trick-or-treated on Main St. in Narrowsburg, the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance (DVAA) transformed into a haunted hotel Friday night.
Socially distanced and masked attendees were spooked by haunting dances inspired by local lore both Friday and Saturday night. Inspiration included tales of the alleged warlock and victim of the Stone Arch Bridge hex murder, George Markert, to the doomed Bride of Buck Hill Falls who is said to haunt the Buck Hill Falls inn.
The ghoulish conjurings by The Fete used the DVAA, site of the former Arlington Hotel and one of the area's oldest buildings, as a stage over its two floors.
The Fete Collective is a performance collaboration founded by Ronnie Todorowski and Colin Cunliffe, current Barryville residents who met while performing on Broadway.

The ghostly cast included Colin Cunliffe as Arlington Hotel owner Joseph “J.G.” Gutheil, Ronnie Todorowski as Tom Quick, Mary Beth Hansohn as The Bride of Buck Hill Falls, James Graber as George Markert, Francesca Granell as Sally, Joseph Conger as Adam Heidt, and included Isabel Braverman, Corinna Grunn and Ryan Sander as additional dancers.
