Theater Group Brings Classic "Tales from the Crypt" Comics to Life for Halloween
< >
Have you ever felt the burning desire to see musical versions of your favorite comics played out IRL? The Captured Aural Phantasy Theater group has got you covered, and they're bringing an all-time classic to life just in time for Halloween: Tales from the Crypt.

The Captured Aural Phantasy Theater (CAPT) is a Los Angeles-based variety group that brings classic comic stories to life with singing, dancing, puppetry, visual art, dancing, interactive contests, and more. They take an old-time radio style with their narratives, and have performed shows at the Mid-Summer Scream Festival, the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, and, of course, San Diego Comic Con.

As they wrote in a press release: 

Opening quote
Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is what would happen if Garrison Keilor, John Waters and Stan Lee all hooked up after a night of hard partying. Our specialty is giving old comics a modern voice.
Closing quote

For Halloween this year, they're doing a special performance of a classic old horror comic: Tales from the Crypt. They'll perform the comic stories live on stage along with music, magic acts, a marionette show, and more. There will be food, drinks (some of the adult variety), and lots of Halloween candy.

Opening quote
Captured Aural Phantasy Theater has crafted a night to remember, mining classic memories of Halloweens past and bringing them into the 21st Century through projections, humor, music and thrilling surprises. We've mixed 50's horror comics, 70's trick-or-treating and 40's spook shows into a chilling night of terror in a 60's puppet theater. See shocking stories of vampires! See a skeleton loose its head! Win a dead body!
Closing quote

The show will take place at the Bob Baker Marionette Theater in Los Angeles on October 29 and 30 at 8pm. The tickets are $20 online and $25 at the door.
