For Halloween weekend of 2011 we have a very special treat for you. Across America several groups will be presenting a series of live radio dramas based on Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. These will not all be the same, however, starting in New England it will an adaptation of the original story, then as darkness falls to the west the Sleepy Hollow story gets told in later time periods. Finally by the time we get to the West Coast we have a modern version of the tale.
The stories will be told in the live radio drama format. This is performed on stage with voice actors in front of microphones and live sound effects created by the foley artists. It is how the classic shows were created during the golden age of radio, and we perform it live in front of an audience. It is a powerful effect as you can lose yourself in the audio landscape yet still have the immediacy of a live show.
In addition all of the performances will be recorded and a CD compilation will be available for sale on this website after Halloween weekend.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us at one of our shows. But do watch your head...
