Things That Go Boo

Children's scary theatrics entertain neighborhood.

Each October for the past six years, Heather Cooper has turned her Fairfax Station property into a stage and invited neighborhood children to participate in a Halloween-themed performance.

This year, The Rutledge Drive Players, as the informal company calls itself, presented "Belly of the Whale," a Halloween parable on Sunday, Oct. 22 at Cooper's home. Following the performance, the costumed actors lined the Haunted Path, which weaves through the neighborhood, scaring those brave enough to walk it.
