Auburn Area Community Theatre (AACT) is setting the stage and the mood for Halloween weekend by bringing “The Twisted Tales of Poe” to life at the Auburn University Chapel. The show will run Saturday the 28th through Halloween night.

Select stories from Edgar Allen Poe will be told in the form of a staged radio drama, complete with live sound effects and music, created live on-stage by Foley artists. It takes us back to the hey-day of American Radio programs of the 1940s. Witness “The Tell–Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” The Black Cat,” and of course, “The Raven,” all come to life before your very eyes and ears! Originally produced by public television station KTWU in Kansas, “Twisted Tales of Poe” has been performed throughout North America.

Terry Kelley, AACT President and director of the show says, "this experience is a lot of ‘firsts’ for us- our first time staging stories by Poe, our first time at the University Chapel, and our first Halloween show. I think people will really enjoy these classic America horror stories. I think we forget how creepy-good Poe is. It's always exciting and challenging to perform in a new space, and this chapel has its own ghost story- a bonus ghost! I look forward to people coming out and enjoying the experience.”
