Shades of Poe 2013
This intimate performance uses the works of Edgar Allan Poe to tell the story of 6 spirits whose tragedies in life keep them from moving on in death. "Shades of Poe" is presented as a house tour using the different rooms as different settings for the stories. Instead of the audience remaining stationary while the actors move on and off a stage, the audience moves throughout the 19th century farmhouse to hear complete tellings of Poe's spookiest works: The Raven, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Imp of the Perverse, Berenice, and the Cask of Amontillado. This year, we have added one more amazing tale: The Black Cat. And all is hosted by the master of terror himself: Edgar Allan Poe.
This performance involves standing, walking, climbing stairs, and moving through dimly lit areas. Recommended ages: 12 and up.
*** Monday October 28th ***
In honor of our 5th year, we are reaching out to those who have never been able to see "Shades of Poe" because of physical limitations on walking and climbing stairs.
The performance on this date is a special, one-night only event at the Markeim Arts Center in Haddonfield, NJ, wherein we will present "Shades of Poe" as a traditional stage show, fully accessible to anyone who cannot climb stairs.
The address for this performance is 104 Walnut Street (Corner of Lincoln and Walnut Streets) Haddonfield, NJ. Street parking is available. Ticket purchasing information is still at Brown Paper Tickets, and questions should NOT be directed to the Markeim Arts Center.

||I saw your presentation last year and LOVED it. Will there be anything different this year or is it the same?
||Thank you! The only major change in the show from last year is that we replaced "The Black Cat" with "Ligeia".|
