Three radio plays adapted from classic works by Edgar Allen Poe, Rudyard Kipling, and Oscar Wilde. The Cask of Amontillado: Driven by his burning desire to avenge his family's suffering and father's death, Montressor tricks his arrogant and boastful archrival into assisting in his own hideous demise. The Mark of the Beast: A lack of respect for the spiritual power of the Monkey God exacts a horrible price on a soldier. The Canterville Ghost: Doomed to spend the rest of his life haunting a castle, a ghost's wish is finally granted thanks to a single act of kindness by a child.

Some of the advantages to producing radio plays:
One Simple Set—A radio station—made up mostly of drapes, a control booth (if desired), mikes, and sound effects equipment.
Less Wardrobe—no changes of wardrobe are necessary.
Less Staging—actors simply stand at mikes most of the time.
Less Rehearsal—actors don't memorize lines—they just read them.
Fewer Cast Members—one actor plays many parts.
No Props—only scripts.

Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "This production includes practical sound effects. In our production the cast members created these sound effects right on stage. The biggest piece of advice is to start practicing with these sound effects early!"
- Tip by John Barthelmes, Spotlight Studios for the Performing Arts, Inc., Fairport, N.Y.
- Each poster includes a text box which allows you to customize it with your production information. Once a poster has been opened, position your mouse over the lower third portion until you see a label with instructions on entering your production information. Use the Text Select Tool to customize your poster.
- You can print the poster in its original format and hand write your information.
- Your local copy shop should be able to create prints from a file saved to disk. They might even be able to increase the size of the poster for you (although some loss of resolution will occur).
