The Old Time Radio Club will return to the Seagull Theatre in Pakefield next month for a special Halloween performance.

The group, who perform authentic vintage radio dramatisation under broadcast conditions, using voice actors, live music, live sound-effects and a live studio audience will perform 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.

Frankenstein tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment, while The Dunwich Horror is a short story by H. P. Lovecraft, first published in April 1929 which tells the tale of a traveller in north central Massachusetts who takes a wrong turn and comes upon a lonely and curious county.

Script editor and performer Dave Higgins said: “We are really looking forward to this double-bill. The group are always entertaining, incredulous and off the wall! If you’ve never witnessed a radio play being performed live, be sure to treat yourself to a unique experience”.

Tickets are £7.50 (concessions available) and can be booked via www.theseagull.co.uk or 01502 589726.
