It’s fun to shiver this time of year

Everyone, young and old, wants a bit of spooky, creepy, tingly fun at Halloween. Whether telling tales of graveyards that come alive, mysterious shape shifters, or midnight visitors on a stormy night, Margaret can tickle, tease or scare.


“Margaret enticed many cackles from a room full of 100 ‘witches’ during our annual Witches Tea Party.” – Heather Young, THE CENTER at Palos Hills
