Reserve your tickets now for "Three Sisters Dressed in Black." A 60 minute One Act Play. Written by Anna Bond, originally commissioned by the Christiansburg Library and directed by Anna Dalton. This is a local historical true crime murder mystery. The play centers around the sensational murder trial in New Jersey where the Sisters were accused of murdering Ocey Martin Snead.
There are no witches in this story. Sometimes real life is SCARY enough.
Mary Snead, Caroline Wardlaw Martin and Virginia Wardlaw lived in Christiansburg Virginia in the early 1900s. They taught at the Montgomery Academy College for Women located on College Street, a school their Aunt Ocena Seaborn Pollock operated the school for nearly 50 years. Christiansburg Middle School was built on the same site.
Generations of Christiansburg students, faculty, and staff have seen the ghosts of the sisters walking the halls at the school. Black figures have been seen in the halls, lights mysteriously turned off and on, and sometimes a crying baby was heard.

On Friday, October 26th the Montgomery Museum will have a special historical presentation prior to the show. Get to know the sisters dark past as it relates to the town of Christiansburg.
