Holly has been participating “behind the scenes” with Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour since 2018.
We have been friends since first grade but Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour was our first big project together. In 2017 we started with a few simple ideas on paper and after months of collaboration, productivity, and endless dedication, we were thrilled to present a performance like those we had admired and cherished for years.
Together, we have experienced an amazing transformation within ourselves and this tour. This progression could not have been done without the support of our cast, crew, guests, sponsors, and everyone in the community who believed in us. Thank you all for your continuing support.
