Get in the mood for Halloween with Evansville Community Theatre’s fall production of “Dracula: The Radio Play” on October 25, 26, and 27. It’s a staged production of an old-time radio show with actors in multiple roles, spooky sound effects created on stage, and old-timey radio ads written for local sponsors -- all performed in front of a live audience.
The three live "Sound Effects Artists" are the most fun to watch as they bring the show to life slamming doors, rattling chains, cranking the wind machine, and more. What really creates the eerie mood is live organ music played throughout the show, just like an old-fashioned silent movie.
“Dracula: The Radio Play” is based on the classic novel “Dracula” by Bram Stoker, and adapted for radio theatre by Philip Grecian.
