Eighth Grade Drama Brings Poe To Life February 7-8
Join Us in the Black Box Theatre, and Be Prepared to Shudder!
The thumping of a heartbeat. The creek of a door. The howl of a bitter wind. The gong of a clock tower. The clang of alarm bells. The sound of beating wings getting closer and closer…
Get ready for a frightful experience, when Shuddersome: Tales of Poe comes to life in the Black Box Theatre on February 7 and 8. Eighth grade drama students will perform at 7 p.m. each night so get ready to sit at the edge of your seat, which will be secured on a first-come basis as there is limited seating.
Specters, ghosts and ghouls come alive in this vivid theatrical adaptation of some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best-known works. Included are The Tell-Tale Heart, The Raven, and The Masque of the Red Death.
Poe’s words rise from the page like corpses from the grave. Be careful. Do you hear that tap, tap, tapping?
Note: This show is recommended for audiences who are Middle School-aged and older.
