The Show

In 2013, Wandering Aesthetics’ co-artistic directors completed a thru-hike of the 2,185.9-mile Appalachian Trail. But they didn’t come back alone…

Master Storyteller Kyle Jozsa leads audiences on a spine-tingling journey into the heart of Appalachia. Intertwining real-life experiences with campfire stories collected on their adventure, Jozsa conjures Boogers, Witches and Haints off the AT and into the imagination. There are many chills, thrills, and laughs sprinkled throughout this hour-long solo performance.

**There is minor graphic/adult language that may make this unsuitable for children under 10.
(For an interactive, family-friendly version, see Scared Silly.)

The production economically utilizes a minimalistic set, allowing solo-performer Kyle Jozsa to rely on his phenomenal storytelling talent to create the imagery and characters within the stories.
— Alyssa Keown, The Akronist


Boogers, Witches and Haints: Canal Stories will return to Akron in October 2017!!!
