The Tecumseh Center for the Arts, in collaboration with Tecumseh Youth Theatre, The Tecumseh Players, and the TCA Big Band & VocalAires is proud to present the WTCA Radio Show - Fright Night at the TCA, on October 20 and 21, 2017. Based on the 1940’s era live radio shows, patrons will see and hear “The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow,” a story based on the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” performed live on stage. Adapted for radio from Washington Irving’s short story by Anthony E. Palermo, this drama is sure to delight fans of all ages, just in time for Halloween!
The show is directed by long-time Tecumseh Players member Heather Harris, with musical direction by Dr. Marty Marks, Adrian College Director of Bands and TCA Big Band & VocalAIres’ Director and Lead Alto Sax player. With a full complement of onstage sound effects technicians providing everything from the sound of horse’s hooves clomping to sword fights and thunder, combined with backup, incidental music by the TCA Big Band, this will surely be a night to remember.
Sponsors for the WTCA Radio Show include “sister station” WLEN 103.9fm, Gillin Eye Care, Tuckey Family Restaurant, Hacker Jewelers, and Lancaster Insurance. Watch as live commercials for each of our sponsors, “news of the day,” and items of interest are shared, ‘40’s style. As in years past, patrons will also enjoy music from the TCA Big Band & VocalAires as they perform such songs as, Old Devil Moon, Bewitched, Witchcraft, Spooky, and more. Come enjoy the night and you may just get a treat in the end!
