Cast Recognition

Chris Raudabaugh


Chris Raudabaugh began acting with RTP in 2019 and is the owner of one of our featured venues, Art Printing Company. In 2019 he welcomed us into his historic building and let us make it our home.

In 2020, we challenged Chris with a large monologue role, encouraging him to exercise his public speaking skills, which he hated us for. He was the first tour guide our tour encountered and by far the WORST, and we love him for it.

Thank you for all of your hard work perfecting such a difficult role, Chris!

Emily Chronister

Emily Chronister began acting with RTP in 2020 with Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour, and we were thrilled to watch her meek and mild temperament burst into rage to perfect her character.

She navigated the steep staircase of Art Printing Vompany anywhere between eight to sixteen times a night and maneuvered the halls in a complete blackout.

Thank you for the dedication you put into your character!

Jayden Smith

Jayden Smith acted with us for the first time in 2020 and really came out of his shell during rehearsal.

He was quick to learn his lines, and worked well with the other volunteers, making new friends along the way.

We could not ask for a more patient or polite individual to work with.

Tracey Mimnall

Tracey Mimnall is a veteran actress with CHLT. She started by making silent appearances during performances before embracing more outspoken roles. 

In addition to acting, she is also the Secretary and Fundraising Coordinator of the Rivertown Theatre Productions, LLC Committee.

Donna Fink

Donna Fink first stepped onto the stage in 2020 and was a delightful addition to the tour.

She came to every rehearsal in a good mood and always seemed genuinely happy to be part of the production.

We truly hope Donna will be a returning member in 2021.

Madison Barnhart

Madison Barnhart first participated with the tour when she was 5 years old in 2017 and has blossomed into a bold, young actress.

She always takes her roles seriously and is one of the first cast members to memorize her lines, year after year.

Victoria Barnhart

Victoria Barnhart first acted with us in 2017 at the age of 3 years old.

Currently she continues to be the youngest actor in our entire cast.

Following in her older sister’s footsteps, Victoria has strayed away from her shyness and become one of the patrons most talked about performers.

Raiden Ferrer

Raiden Ferrer first acted with Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour in 2020 and was a much-needed addition to the team.

This young man needs special acknowledgement for his politeness and will to work. There was never a rehearsal day where Raiden wasn’t willing to help move props or read lines for an absent cast member.

Thank you, Raiden, for always being willing to do more than asked of you.

Jim Mimnall

Jim Mimnall has participated with CHLT for many years and once again gave us a performance we will continue to talk about for years to come. He has a way of giving his character a personality we cannot seem to put on paper during the writing process.

Jim incorporates humor, creativity, and enthusiasm in each of his performances.

We are always thrilled to have him as part of the cast.

Emily Barnhart

Emily Barnhart has hidden behind the scenes as our hair stylist since 2017 and finally gained the courage to step into the spotlight in 2020.

When another actress stepped down from her role, Emily volunteered to learn the lines and blocking, having less than a week to perfect the part. We were all amazed at Emily’s hidden talents and hope we can convince her to perform with us again in the future.

We cannot express how thankful we are that she was willing to take on such a challenging role on such short notice. Thank you, Emily!

Rachel Mimnall

Rachel Mimnall is an actor in CHLT as well as the Co-Co-Director of Rivertown Theatre Productions, LLC, as she assists the other two primary directors with various tasks throughout the year. 

Rachel has expanded on her acting career by accepting roles of all sizes and styles while learning the business components of the trade.

Joe Stehman

Joe Stehman participated with CHLT as a security member in 2019 and finally decided to spread his wings and audition for an acting role in 2020.

We are so proud of Joe for stepping out of his comfort zone and hope he continues to act with us in years to come.

Izzy Acosta

Izzy Acosta is a previous actor of Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour and has been part of the security detail since we moved downtown in 2019.

He also helps with set up, tear down, and prop transportation.

Rick Barnhart

Rick Barnhart is a past actor of CHLT and has joined the security detail as of 2020 to help oversee the safety of our actors on the streets.

For 2020, Rick was also in charge of lantern distribution and safety.

Holly Graybill

Holly Graybill has been our check-in assistant since 2018 and also acquired the role of bookkeeper for our 2020 tour.

Holly has a natural talent of assisting customers and scheduling reservations, so much that we wonder how we had ever done it without her in years past.

Holly has also shared in the responsibilities of the treasury position on the Rivertown Theatre Productions Committee.

Twiggy Carter-Croom

Twiggy Carter-Croom has assisted Columbia’s Haunted Lantern Tour with makeup since 2017, with styles ranging from classy neutral, to dark and gory.

Her talent does not go unnoticed amongst our actors and guests.
