“Let the words take you.” Last season’s inaugural Fireside Macbeth launched a magical Halloween tradition of hair-raising stories and delicious treats shared before a roaring campfire. And this year is going bigger and better. We’re upping the ante and making it even more theatrical, ghostly, and whimsical!
Our centerpiece is a performance of the original radio broadcast (that caused widespread panic) of The War of the Worlds (as performed by Orson Welles and the Mercury Theatre on the Air from a script by Howard Koch and based on the novel by H.G. Wells.) This nostalgic gem will be rounded out with a collection of classic supernatural stories and creatures of the night, including The Monkey’s Paw by H.H. Jacobs, The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe, and more! Plus a sneak peek of next season’s 20th Anniversary revival of the BSB original Bram Stoker’s Dracula adapted for the stage by MS Wulfgar in 2003!
