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!

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater plans to bring TALES FROM THE COMIC BOOK CRACK DOWN to the big stage in a big, Broadway-style way, with original music, effects, projected art and performances of infamous vinatge comic books!   In our unique, multi-media performance style, we will bring to life the famous Senate hearings of April 21, 1954, which attacked the comic book industry and resulted in its repression for years after. We will shed light on this important, yet untold event of censorship over 60 years later by spotlighting notorious comic publisher William Gaines, his EC comics and his sparring with the Senators. TALES FROM THE COMIC BOOK CRACK DOWN showcases live performances of vintage, mid-century comic book stories that the US Senate attacked in 1954 for being a bad influence on children along with excerpts from the actual transcripts of the hearings. All is presented in our signature variety show/ old radio show style. The show includes comedic acts, multimedia projections and live music.

This is where we need your help.  To commemorate this historical event and shed light on what William Gaines went through during these times we plan to perform this in a larger theater with all the theater bells and whistles.  Please help us raise funds to bring this ambition production to life!

Thank you,

Captured Aural Phantasy Theater
