Special reader’s theater performance of ‘The Poe Show’ set for Saturday

Warren Players is pleased to announce a special reader’s theater performance of “The Poe Show” for one night only — on Halloween.

Penned by local writer Adrianne Hunt and directed by Alan Branthoover, the production will be staged at the historic Struthers Library Theatre at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.

This one-act “reader’s theater” play weaves the tragedy and grief of Poe’s life — and his signature mystery and macabre — into adaptations of several of his prominent works, along with a few lesser known.

The cast of “the Poe Show” features Andrew Stalder as Edgar Allan Poe, along with Doug McCracken, Kevin Hunt, Patrick Mulligan, Michael Stenberg, Nyssa Brumagin, Megan VanOrd, Melissa Carr, Doug McCracken and Mark Hurst.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and Sally’s Encore will also be open for pre-show refreshments. Costumes are encouraged!

Proceeds of the performance benefit both Warren Players and Struthers Library Theatre. While admission is by donation, due to current social distancing restrictions, we recommend you reserve your seat online at strutherslibrarytheatre.org. If you go online to reserve tickets, you’ll be prompted to make a donation. After making the donation, you’ll will receive an email with the link to reserve tickets.
