GEAR UP YOUR CRT FOR OCTOBER
It's getting to be that time of year again, and we are hoping you will check out some of our seasonal productions!
THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW is one of our all-time top selling items. It was in the #1 spot of all the various versions of the tale on Audible.com for many years, and won the Gold Ogle Award in 2005. It has also been broadcast yearly on SiriusXM Radio. If you are expecting the Tim Burton version, you best avoid our production - as we stay 100% true to the original tale by Washington Irving. TRIVIA MOMENT: All the names read by the "ghosts" in the prologue are names I copied from the headstones at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Tarrytown, NY.
RAY BRADBURY'S THE HALLOWEEN TREE - was our third collaboration, and Ray allowed me to write the script for this time around! We won the Silver Ogle Award for this production in 2008. TRIVIA: Some critics have complained about the two songs in the production. These songs appear in the actual book, and the lyrics are in italics. Our music composer, Jeff Gage, put music to the lyrics by Ray, and the songs "The Halloween Tree" and "Broomworks" were born - Music by Jeffrey Gage, Lyrics by Ray Bradbury. Now, if we skipped the songs, I bet the same critics would have complained that we did so. You can't win! :)
RAY BRADBURY'S SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES. Another show that is perfect for Halloween listening! Make some popcorn, light a few candles, and let Mr. Dark take you on a very spooky journey! Winner of the 2007 Silver Ogle Award.
I can't seem to get the links working - must be a glitch somewhere - but you can find all these titles on Audible, i-Tune, Amazon, and pretty much everywhere.
