BRISTOL, Tenn., Sept. 14, 2017 – Twin City Radio Theatre at King University will present
the play “Frankenstein and Other Tales of Horror” in the Fine Arts Theatre on King’s
main campus in Bristol, Tenn. The production takes place Sept. 29-30 at 7:30 p.m.
each evening and on Oct. 1 at 2:30 p.m.
The Twin City Radio Theatre Troupe, under the artistic direction of Christopher R.
Slaughter, associate professor, and chair the Theatre Department at King, brings the
magic of old time radio to the live stage.
“‘Frankenstein,’ is a faithful dramatization of Mary Shelly’s classic tale of a young
scientist named Victor Frankenstein whose gruesome experiments result in giving life
to a corpse,” said Slaughter. “Dr. Frankenstein, however, is repulsed and tries to
destroy it, but the monster escapes. Bound by hate, Frankenstein pursues his horrid
creation to the ends of the earth.
“This chilling radio adaptation of ‘Frankenstein’ first haunted the airwaves in August
of 1931, three months before Universal Pictures’ iconic ‘Frankenstein’ with Boris
Karloff made motion picture history. The second story in our double feature, ‘My Son,
John,’ comes from the classic old time radio series ‘Quiet, Please’ and features another
famous monster … But I’ve said too much already,” added Slaughter.
The cast includes senior Music major Alex Campbell, senior Music and Psychology major
Lauren Castor, Dr. Han Ong, dean of King’s College of Arts & Sciences, senior Theatre
major Austin Puckett, sophomore Religious Studies and English major Jenny Tudor, and
King alumnus Andrew Woods (’15).
The crew for the production includes junior Theatre major Emily Bartley as stage manager,
as well as assisting freshmen Jake Regan, Brittanie Rose, Makailah Shell, and Spencer-Jon
Tickets for the performances of “Frankenstein and Other Tales of Horror” are $5 general
admission and free for King students, faculty, and staff with a King University ID.
Tickets will be available at the door one hour before each performance. For more information,
