Captured Aural Phantasy Theater's Ghastly Horror Variety Show May 8th

Something wicked this way comes! No wait, oh it's those guys and gals from Captured Aural Phantasy Theater. This month at the El Cid they'll be doing there best to frighten you. This is a great way to slowly come back from all the horror events of April, we still have a Vampire Run this month dammit. It's best to ease back into society slowly by watching horror shows with groups of friends. You can hear the howls from their press release below:

Boo! Captured Aural Phantasy Theater (CAPT) presents its Ghastly Horror Variety Show at the historic El Cid for 1 night only – Wednesday, May 8! In our newest retro variety show, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater blends pop culture and the absurd to bring to life nuggets straight from the heyday of comic book horror (the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s) through live performances of vintage comic ghost stories, ads, comedic bits, music and, as always, special surprises! Who says you can only be scared in October? Captured Aural Phantasy Theater gives you chills this May 8 - live.

Anchoring the Ghastly Horror Variety Show are live performances of stories and art pulled straight from the pages of vintage horror comic books, the genre that outsold all others in the early 50’s. These comics, containing some of the medium’s best writing and art, were the subject of Senate hearings in 1954, the outcome of which eventually brought down the entire comics industry. Captured Aural Phantasy Theater presents these tales in all of their subversive, terrifying fun!
