Presenter:
Phil Proctor, Firesign Theater


Abstract:
Starring Phil Proctor of the Firesign Theater as Edgar Allen Poe, this one hour live audio drama performance will highlight Poe's life and stories in sound. Featuring scenes from Poe's most famous short stories and "moments" in his life this presentation will feature actors, live sound effects artists, recorded effects, and original music to bring to life Poe and his works.

The evening will feature the actor Phil Proctor (Firesign Theatre / Crazy Dog Audio Theater / Animation for Disney, etc.) as Edgar sharing moments from his life which led to writing works like "The Tell Tale Heart," "The Cask of Amontillado," and many others. In addition to Phil the cast will include voice actors Melinda Peterson, Lucien Dodge, and possibly one more actor who will help to bring to life Edgar's stories.

Produced and directed by award winning audio dramatist Sue Zizza with sound design by David Shinn of SueMedia Productions.
