This Halloween the Post-Meridian Radio Players are proud to present The Van Helsing Chronicles! Famed monster hunter Professor A. Van Helsing hosts and narrates two tales of Gothic horror in which he eventually also plays a role. We shall be presenting two stories, original adaptations of Richard Marsh's The Beetle and Bram Stoker's Dracula. There will be several types of positions available in the show, including on-stage voice acting, live Foley sound-effects performance, and crucial behind-the-scenes positions.

Monster in the Mirror

Our 2015 Hallowe’en show, Monster in the Mirror, brought together two original adaptations of classic tales of terror on the topic of the horrors we may keep submerged within us—and the dreadful cost when they come out. The show featured “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Miss Hyde” as adapted by Tegan Kehoe and directed by Jess Viator and “The Frankenstein Murders”, adapted by Michael McAfee and directed by Liz Salazar.

Tomes of Terror: Nevermore

There’s one due date you can never escape! In October, 2014, the Post-Meridian Radio Players brought one of America's most respected authors to our stage this Hallowe’en in Tomes of Terror: Nevermore. We adapted three of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic stories, The Masque of the Red Death, The Cask of Amontillado, and The Fall of the House of Usher. And as a little extra treat to set the mood, we started with a dramatic reading of “The Raven”.

Tomes of Terror 3

There’s one due date you can never escape! In October 2008 we presented Tomes of Terror 3, featuring our recreations of a Hallowe’en episode of The Baby Snooks Show and “The Tell-Tale Heart” as adapted for Nightfall and “Reynardine”, an original adaptation of Athan Y. Chilton's short story “The Ballad of Reynardine”.

A nationwide re-telling of the classic American tale


About the Project


In 2011 PMRP spearheaded a nationwide campaign to spread the joy of terrifying radio drama to all the corners of America!

That Halloween, several radio drama troupes presented live performances of Washington Irving's classic American horror tale, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow". Each troupe adapted their own version of the story: from its original late 18th century setting to the modern day.
