A Halloween double bill will be showcased at the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield.

The Old Time Radio Club will be returning to the theatre on Sunday, October 29 at 7pm with an original adaptation and double-bill of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” and “The Dunwich Horror” by H.P. Lovecraft.

The group’s writer and voice actor David Higgins said: “Taking these fantastic original stories and recreating them as radio plays is a real challenge. When editing a long story down to around 45 minutes, you have to ensure the audience is hooked at every twist and turn whilst not losing the original character of the piece.”

The Old Time Radio Club perform authentic vintage radio dramatisation under “broadcast” conditions, using voice actors, live music, live sound-effects and a live studio audience.

Musical director Richard Ainslie said: “We’ve been working hard preparing the show and are really looking forward to performing it for one night only at one of our favourite venues. The Seagull is an intimate studio theatre which really allows us to connect with our studio audience and makes for a better experience. We always have lots of fun there, especially at Halloween”.

Tickets cost £7.50 (concessions available) and can be booked via the box office on www.theseagull.co.uk or 01502 589726.
