Rock River Players to perform a spooky radio play

WILLIAMSVILLE — Rock River Players present The Shadow People, an old-time radio drama Friday, May 12, at 7 p.m., at Williamsville Hall on Dover Road.

In a news release, director Debbi Reed-Savory says “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.

“The Rock River Players' chilling version will be more of a journey than a polished production,” Reed-Savory says. “It'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, she says.
