“The Shadow People” on Friday, May 12 at 7 PM

WILLIAMSVILLE – Rock River Players present “The Shadow People” an old time radio drama Friday, May 12 at 7 PM at the Williamsville Hall.

According to director Debbi Reed-Savory, “The Hall of Fantasy was a series of radio dramas dedicated to scaring the living daylights out of its listeners.” “The Shadow People” by Richard Thorne aired in the early 1950s with professional sound effects and cast. Reed-Savory adds, “The Rock River Players’ chilling version will be more of a journey than a polished production. lt’ll be full of fright, as well as fun, as all who attend will be participating in providing homemade on-cue sound effects. How loud can you scream? Even the after-show refreshments will be spooky. Join the RRP to confront our most powerful fear, the dark. Turn the lights out, only if you dare.”

The Rock River Players launched in August 2015 and have since presented several productions with the intent of growing community through the lively arts. The production following the one-night old time radio show offering is The Fantasticks! on July 20 to 23.

The Williamsville Hall is located on Dover Road in the village of Williamsville. For more information on the May 12 event, contact Debbi Reed-Savory at deb.reedsavory@gmail.com.
