What is Captured Aural Phantasy Theater?

CAPTURED AURAL PHANTASY THEATER combines the art and drama of a vintage radio program with the live entertainment of a Vaudeville show. Conjuring the Golden and Silver Ages of comics, tales teeming with romance, horror, and science-fiction are performed in the style of a live radio drama. The readings are accompanied by musical and visual interludes in a multi-media cabaret style performance. Marvel to actors as they bring retro stories to life while you watch projections of original art, listen to live sound effects, swoon to sultry singing, take home fabulous door prizes, and thrill to many more live-action surprises! The talent never ends in a full evening of entertainment with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater!

Always and Forever

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is the original pop culture variety show that specializes in giving old comic books a modern voice. Combining live performance, vaudeville, an old radio show, music and stunning visuals, we bring bits of pop culture, from TV shows to comic books, to life in unique performances that put entertainment first. Captured Aural Phantasy Theater is what would happen if Garrison Keilor, John Waters and Stan Lee all put on a show after a night of hard partying.

We perform all over the place and all the time.

Be sure to check back here soon for info on our next shows. We have big things coming up!
