Back by popular demand for Halloween week, the Capital Classics Theatre Company presents radio-theatre style performances at The Mark Twain House & Museum in Hartford.
This year, it’s an original adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s gothic novella “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”.

Just like the days of the golden age of radio, Company members use live sound effects, music and their storytelling vocal skills to tell the tale of Dr. Jekyll, who faces horrible consequences when he lets his dark side run wild with a potion that transforms him into the animalistic Mr. Hyde. Performances will also include radio-theatre style readings of one or two short stories by Mark Twain to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Over the years, Capital Classics has staged radio-theatre performances around Halloween at The Mark Twain House & Museum of “Macabre Macbeth” (2010);
“Poe Down Below,” an evening of Edgar Allan Poe’s stories (2013); Bram Stoker's “Dracula” (2014); “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” (2015); and “The War of the Worlds: The 1938 Radio Script by Howard E. Koch” (2016).

Audience members of all ages are welcome for a scary good time.

Admission: Tickets are $20 for the general public, $15 for MTH&M members and Let’s GO Arts! members. Get your tickets HERE!
