Eerie Chapters for Halloween 

When one thinks of Halloween, the natural association is dinner and theater, right? In College Park, Chapters Bread & Books Café:, which in the past has brought you performances by Thomas Jefferson and Mark Twain (or close facsimiles thereof), is conjuring up visitations from Edgar Allen Poe, the ghost of Hamlet's dad and the Jabberwocky for its Haunted Chapters dinners.

Shows are running now through Halloween evening, and owner Marty Cummins calls them "horror with humor." The full 3-course dinner costs $24.95 ($19.95 for just dessert and the show). While you're noshing, Lee Stevens, Simon Needham and Caroline Ross will attempt to scare the bejeesus out of you. Readings of Poe's "The Telltale Heart," Shakespeare and Lewis Carroll are interspersed with original material and special effects. A kids' matinee on Oct. 31 is $9.95. Call 407-246-1546.
