Victorian Cut-out Theatre season 3 premieres this Friday (July 15th) on Cinevore.com. This new version of the show is the best the show has ever been and if you like what you see, please repost on social media and tell your friends about it. With social media algorithms being the way they are, I need your help to get the word out. So please tell everyone you know about the hilarity of Victorian Cut-out Theatre. I’m bias, but this season really is the strongest yet. This first episode is all about coffins and burials.
The first draft of the first story in the radio play I’m working on for Halloween is complete. I’m really pleased so far with this draft and expect with editing it will only get better. It’s about vampires and is loosely based on two stories, the first being the tale of Mercy Brown the Exeter Vampire. If you get a chance, you should look it up. This true story went on to inspire Bram Stoker with Dracula. It is chilling to say the least. The second is the story about how the Misfits, led by Glenn Danzig, went in search of the grave of voodoo queen, Marie Laveau when they were on tour in New Orleans. I really like the idea of a spooky punk band getting busted for grave robbing in Louisiana. Anyway, I have a few more stories to work on and meeting to have with my collaborators before we start settling into what the show is going to be. This being a long time goal of mine, to do a Halloween themed radio show, I have a very specific experience in mind for our audience. I want the people watching and listening to see a real show, to get a taste of what old-time radio must have been like, but updated for modern audiences.
I’m also working on a short film for The Go West Film Festival. It’s about Oscar Wilde coming to Leadville. I’m very excited about this.
Other than that, I’m doing a lot of child-rearing and yard work these days. Exhausting endeavors to be sure, but not without their rewards.
