Glenwood Ghost Walk looking for cast members
After taking last year off, the Glenwood Springs Historical Society Historic Ghost Walk through Linwood Cemetery is back.
Pitching in to help this year, Chip Winn Wells, co-president of Defiance Community Players, has offered to help find people to play ghost characters in the more than century-old Roaring Fork Valley cemetery.
“I volunteered to help Clara, who is really passionate about bringing back the ghost walk,” Wells said.
Wells is working with Historical Society board member Clara Miller, who is leading the event this year.

The Ghost Walk will be condensed from its usual three-weekend run to two weekends, the last two weekends in October.
Wells said she is not auditioning, but she would like to meet people to talk about the requirements for being a ghost and let them decide if they want to do it.
“It’s a small time commitment, but if people think you can just become a ghost and wear a white sheet, that’s not what this is about. This is about a historical tour of the cemetery,” Wells said.
“What I’m asking is for people who are interested in playing a role. We have four male and four female roles still available. We also need some children,” she said.
Tours are scheduled for 6:30, 7:15 and 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays, Oct. 18-19 and Oct. 25-26.
“People have to understand it is a time commitment for the entire evening,” Wells said.
“One of the things Clara really wants is some non-scripted ghost people who kind of walk around the cemetery.”
They are also looking for improv gravediggers.
“A true improver takes whatever is thrown their way, and runs with it,” Wells said.
People interested in being a part of the Ghost Walk can call Wells at 970-379-5940.
Tickets will be $20 for adults; $18 for seniors 65 and older and students ages 5-18 years; and $15 for Glenwood Springs Historical Society members.
Tickets will be available at http://www.glewoodhistory.com starting Oct. 1.
