Actors, sound artists team for Halloween radio drama

“The Post-Meridian Radio Players pair voice actors with Foley Sound artists to create a world in showgoers’ minds. Stephen King meets Garrison Keillor in “Tomes of Terror III,” the fourth Halloween “staged-radio thrillology.” The show – which is produced for a live studio audience and will be podcast, but not broadcast – includes an episode of the classic radio sitcom “The Baby Snooks Show,” a creepy folktale, and “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. House manager Chris DeKalb, 34, said the show has proven so popular that the troupe had to add a fourth performance. “In Somerville there’s a lot of Halloween events, and yet we still get the crowds,” he said.”
Great new word: "thrillology"!
