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!

The legendary Famous Monsters of Filmland teams up with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater to present the HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION at the historic El Cid for 1 night only Sunday, December 7! This show takes on stories and comic books inspired by classic, mid-century science fiction! It's a B-Movie Drive-In come to life!

The evening includes vintage sci-fi comic books brought to life on stage with original art, live sound effects and a live soundtrack. Classic tales by greats like Ray Bradbury are given an absurdist treatment for the 21st Century. Along with the multi-media sci-fi stories and comic book performances, the evening includes comedic acts, prizes and the finest live music.

HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION is especially important given that the founder of Famous Monsters, Forrest J Ackerman, coined the term "sci-fi!" Spend the evening with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater for an out-of-this-world geek-fest!

The HI-FI SCI-FI INVASION continues our new season and is the next installment in our monthly residency at El Cid. We always start the show at 8:30pm, but doors open at 7:30 so audiences can begin with El Cid's brand new tapas menu and superb cocktails. Enjoy a variety show, music and booze!

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!
