Restless in Resthaven Cemetery Tour Alpharetta
October 14 & 15 Atlanta Theatre-to-Go invites all ages to come and experience Alpharetta’s rich history brought to life at the sixth season of Restless in Resthaven Cemetery Tours. Sponsored by the Alpharetta and Old Milton Historical Society, each tour begins with live music then continues as costumed actors portraying the lives of notable Alpharettans,lead guests around the streets of downtown, recreating the city’s rich and colorful past with lively performances. A sound truck accompanies the tour to enhance listening capabilities. As guests are led to each location, eccentric characters such as Addie DeVore and Roy “Smokie” Manning, key figures in creating what Alpharetta is today, surprise tour goers by appearing from behind buildings and gravestones of the Resthaven Cemetery. Characters will tell their astounding stories dating back to the pioneer days and the 20th century.
Guests will meet nine characters who lived in Alpharetta during the 1800s an 1900s: Gregarious, buck dancing Addie DeVore, baseball player Roy Manning and his wife Chessie, controversial newspaper editor George Rucker who campaigned against Coca Cola, one-armed Civil War veteran Tom Crisler, and two military heroes: Egbert Royce Vaughan, a popular high school basketball player who was drafted, fought and died in Vietnam and World War II flying daredevil, Isham Oliver Teasly Jr. who was shot down on his 47th mission. Former mayors Tater Teasley Upshaw and Bill Spence round out the cast.
In addition to the return of several favorites, there are two notable additions this year. Alpharetta’s late mayor, Bill Spence makes his first appearance as he rises from his gravesite to encounter his former law partner, who is still very much alive. Also making her first appearance is Chessie Manning, wife of the tour’s favorite character, baseball player and mill worker Roy Manning. The encounter between Roy and Chessie portrays life in an African American household, which is another first for the annual tour. Chessie is played by talented musician and actor Ebony Tucker, who gives a heartfelt rendition of Chessie’s favorite hymn, Blessed Assurance. Chestene Manning Carter, daughter of Roy and Chessie Manning, is a former president of the Alpharetta and Old Milton Historical Society and plans to attend one of the six performances.
