Spirits of the Bay: Live Storytelling with Deborah Frethem


Tampa’s grande dame of ghosts, local author and storyteller Deborah Frethem, takes to the Theatre’s historic stage for an intimate evening of ghost stories and supernatural tales from around the Bay area. Special guest and St. Pete storyteller Ross Tarr (a familiar face for those who join us for Miracle on 34th Street every November) will also tell a tale or two.

Following the performance, Frethem will sign copies of her books, including Haunted Ybor City, Ghost Stories of St. Petersburg and Haunted Tampa: Spirits of the Bay, with sales benefitting Tampa Theatre’s preservation and restoration efforts.

Support is provided by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, Florida Council on Arts and Culture, the Arts Council of Hillsborough County, and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
