On Saturday, June 20, join us for a free outdoor reading of a new thriller ghost story titled “The Spirit of Bay Manor.” Written and directed by Joe Simonelli, playwright and producer, Mr. Simonelli’s plays are staged regularly by The Marco Players. The play is about five people who gather in a supposedly haunted house to try to prove whether the house is haunted. The storyline is simple yet succeeds as a frightening psychological thriller.  

Paul LoPresti (Russ) is a paranormal investigator with a skeptical bent. Victoria Diebler (Julie) is a real estate agent whose company will only list the house if they confirm it is not haunted. Victor Caroli (Barry) is the manor’s owner who desperately needs to sell the house to raise muchneeded cash. Both he and Patti Caroli (Dalia) were part of the earlier experiment gone wrong. Shelley Gothard (Emily) is the niece of a woman who died mysteriously in the earlier experiment, present to try to find out what really happened to her aunt 30 years prior.  

“The Spirit of Bay Manor,” a private reading directed by Joe Simonelli, is an outdoor reading performance on Saturday, June 20, 6 – 8 PM. Drop on by the front of The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island, FL. Audience seating is available in and around the gazebo, or bring your own folding chair. No ticket is required, donations are appreciated and will go toward the Staying Alive Campaign. For more information, visit
