The Lone Star College-Kingwood Radio Theatre is bringing something “scary” in time for Halloween.

The department presents “Twisted Tales of Poe: The Radio Play” by Philip Grecian. The live stage production will feature adapted stories and poems of Edgar Allan Poe. It will stream from Oct. 27-31 on YouTube: LSCKTheatre.

“We chose to produce this show for a few reasons. First, ‘Twisted Tales’ is a fantastic way to experience Edgar Allan Poe’s iconic stories. Producing it over the Halloween season helps add to the creepy thrill of Poe’s stories,” said Kalliope Vlahos, theater and stage production director at LSC-Kingwood. “Second, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are keeping our students and community safe by choosing to film a live radio play version.”

In “Twisted Tales of Poe,” the prisoners of Leverett Street Jail Death Warrant Division await their fates as three of the doomed souls tell their stories, and the cast enters the mind of a fourth. The play will cover four of Poe’s works: “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” “The Black Cat” and “The Raven.” The stories are told in the form of a staged radio drama, complete with live foley artists creating the sound effects. 

“By producing ‘Twisted Tales of Poe,’ we know that the audience will be highly entertained by the exhilarating, spooky, and somewhat creepy, tales of Edgar Allen Poe that come to life on our stage,” she said. “We hope that many people from our community tune in to watch our students’ hard work and the fantastic characterizations of these famous stories!”
