BRISTOL, Tenn., September 19, 2016 – The King University Theatre Program’s Twin City
Radio Theatre Troupe invites the public to join them for a thrilling evening of suspense
as they perform, “Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery,” on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 at 7:30
p.m. and Oct. 2 at 2:30 p.m. at the Fine Arts Theatre on King University’s main campus
as part of King University’s Family Weekend.
The Twin City Radio Theatre Troupe, under the artistic direction of Christopher R.
Slaughter, associate professor of theatre for King, brings the magic of old time radio
to the live stage.
“Tales of Mystery” will feature adaptations of the short stories “The Tell-Tale Heart”
and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” Each performance promises to be a unique theatrical
experience, not unlike what might have been seen in a radio studio in the 1930s or
1940s with actors gathered around microphones with scripts in hand, live sound effects,
and colorful hosts setting the proper mood for the evening’s dramatic offerings.
“We are thrilled to return again to the work of the 19th centuries’ master of the macabre,” says Slaughter. “With its colorful hosts, thrilling
plots, and live sound effects, radio drama is a highly entertaining, distinctive family
The Twin City Radio Theatre Troupe includes Dr. Han Chuan Ong, dean of King University’s
