ABOUT THE SHOW
A tap at a chamber door, and the beat of a hideous heart evoke the very best and creepiest of Edgar Allan Poe. So when Poe sets out to keep his stories alive from beyond the grave, an otherworldly radio studio proves just the thing. Wandering spirits gather to play the roles in Poe's most classic works, from The Cask of the Amontillado to The Fall of the House of Usher. But the grim master of the macabre is a little new to radio. What's all this about commercials?.
And why is a skeptical cemetery cat sticking around for all these stories?

Meet the Director
Sam Jessup has always had a flair for the dramatic and became enamored with theatre at an early age. She has been involved in almost every aspect from acting to being a member of a Board of Directors, but, her true passion is directing. She attended UNC Asheville where she earned a BA in Theatre Arts and a Distinction in Drama for her work on Apartment 3A and And A Child Shall Lead Them. Upon graduation, Sam followed her dreams (and wife) to the beaches of NC where she served as the Vice President of the Board and Marketing Director of a local theatre company for over 5 years. She, her wife, and pup recently moved to Sheboygan and are looking forward to exploring all Wisconsin has to offer. Sam's journey within the local theatre community has just begun and she is thrilled and honored to be directing a show about one of the world's greatest writers for her favorite holiday!
