Swann, could you give an idea of the ages of the young people involved? Some old fashioned scary folktales could be great for little kids--those stories with the "got-ya" endings turned into a short play (such as The Hairy Toe story, or my grandma's special "As I was spinning and I was weaving, I heard a noise . . .") I can send you more for little ones, if that's appropriate.

Also, Robert Frost wrote a wonderfule scary poem called "The Witch of Coos" (unreliable narrator and all), which could be dramatized for a slightly older audience. Some great images in that one--the skeleton shimmering like a chandelier.
