Live From WVL Radio Theatre: The Headless Hessian of Sleepy Hollow (And Other American Horror Stories)

October 12-16, 2016


The intrepid actors of WVL Radio Theatre are back, this time with a series of classic American horror stories, including one by Edgar Allen Poe, a creative retelling of the Lizzie Borden axe murders, and of course a re-imagining of Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Four actors, live sounds effects, and original music transport you back to 1946 when the imagination created horrors far more vivid than any that might actually be lurking in your living room… or your radio station….!

Live From WVL Radio Theatre: It’s A Wonderful Life

November/December 2016


ITP is proud to bring back our own adaptation of this classic American story for the eighth consecutive year. It asks us to take stock of what we hold dear, and demands that that we examine our lives and our priorities. It reminds us that belief in family, in friendship, in people, is not misplaced — no matter how bad things get. It allows us to trust that somehow good will out, and that patience and fortitude are worthy and abiding virtues.
