DRacula: The New World 2020 Cast

*NOTE – Due to the extreme interest I received in this project, I decided to use the 2018 version of the script that includes a few extra characters not included in the original version. I will be adding several more radio/readers theater projects over the next few months to supply more opportunities. It will take me a few days to adapt the 2018 script for radio, but hopefully, I’ll have it out before Oct 16.

Thank you,
Chad Hembree

Murder Announced (Oct 9,10,11,16,17)

Director Alyssa Bustle returns this season with a follow-up murder mystery. An announcement in the local paper states the time and place when a murder is to occur in Miss Blacklock’s Victorian house. The victim is not one of the house’s several occupants, but an unexpected and unknown visitor. What follows is a classic Christie puzzle of mixed motives, concealed identities, a second death, a determined Inspector grimly following the twists and turns, and Miss Marple on hand to provide the final solution at some risk to herself in a dramatic confrontation just before the final curtain.
