- Students and staff at Husson University are welcome and encouraged to audition for the sixth radio drama produced by WHSN-FM in conjunction with NESCom’s Entertainment Production and the Live Sound Audio Program at NESCom.
Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery & Imagination 2014
“The Murders In The Rue Morgue”
Presented by WHSN-FM, NESCom & Husson University
Auditions will be Tuesday, September 23rd from 6:30 to 7:30 PM in the Gracie Black Box Theatre (upstairs at the Gracie Theatre) on the Husson University campus.
It all started with a holiday production of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, which was then followed by Halloween presentations of THE TELL TALE HEART, THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO, THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH and THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM. This year we will present our first 60 MINUTE Poe Show… one of the first detective stories ever written…. THE MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE!
The show will be performed on the stage of the Gracie Theatre on Thursday, October 30 before a live audience, and will be broadcast simultaneously by WHSN-FM. In past years, the annual Poe radio Show has received awards from the Broadcast Education Association. Last year’s production is up for an award again from the BEA, and is also a finalist for the Pinnacle Award, presented by the College Media Association.
The Audition procedure will be pretty simple and fun. Auditioners will be asked to read from script selections. So, be ready to use your most effective 1940’s radio voices.
This year’s production is looking for the following voices:
Announcer (1940’s Radio Voice)
Narrator (Dr. Watson-type)
Auguste Dupin (Amateur detective)
Officer Muset (Paris Gendarme)
Sailor (Seaman with a Soul)
Multiple Female Cameo Roles (Need to be able to SCREAM!)
Multiple Male Roles (Character Voices)
Additionally, the show requires live Sound Effects artists, who will create all of the sounds for the show live, during the performance
Please join us on September 23rd to help celebrate Halloween by auditioning for our Sixth broadcast of TALES OF MYSTERY AND IMAGINATION BY EDGAR ALLAN POE!

This new degree program is designed to educate students for career opportunities that exist in the many fields of the entertainment industry. The curriculum focuses on professional design, technology and management skills that are needed "behind the scenes", rather than on performance.
Core disciplines associated with theatre and the performing arts are employed by many other communications industries throughout the world. As an example, design and construction techniques used in theatre are employed in everything from trade shows to shopping malls, fashion shows, exhibits and even political rallies.
A variety of entertainment venues require professionals who can design and operate todayâ€™s entertainment technologies, as well as manage events and performance facilities. Entertainment Production is a hands-on, industry-wide training program for this exciting and creative field.
