Stunning Success: Shuddersome: Tales of Poe

Do you hear the tap, tap, tapping? The thumping of a heartbeat? The creek of a door? The sound of beating wings getting closer and closer…

In Lindsay Price’s vivid and theatrical adaptation Shuddersome: Tales of Poe, ghosts and ghouls in some of Edgar Allen Poe’s best known works come alive.

Drama teacher, Shannon Boatwright , shared how the student group at Chapin Middle School (Chapin, SC) had the audience shaking in their seats with their unique and visually stunning interpretation of Shuddersome:

I can say that as a producer/director, this show has truly been one of my favorites. Our experience and take on your incredible script of Shuddersome was an enormous success!

I am a music lover and dancer, so I incorporate music and dance into pretty much every show that I do. I love to feature the awesome & many talents of my students! So, our version of Shuddersome not only featured my stars singing and dancing, but also performing sign language. It all worked beautifully and really was an incredible adventure for myself and my 40 honors 8th grade students at Chapin Middle School. 

Congratulations, Chapin Middle School!
