Dallas Children's Theater presents The Raven Society
The DCT Teen Scene Players will present a virtual production inspired by one of literature’s most mind-bending, legendarily haunting pieces of work. The Raven Society takes a forward-thinking, digital twist on Edgar Allan Poe’s most classic work.
In The Raven Society, a group of nine teens who usually convene at midnight in the graveyard to recite and discuss “The Raven” have to relocate their spooky gathering this year to the online platform Zoom due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. As they recite each stanza, an unknown presence keeps causing spooky interruptions. Could it be that another (supernatural) “Participant” is sneaking around in their breakout room?
Running at approximately 45 minutes, The Raven Society is recommended for ages 9 and up. Fun and educational, the show will give audiences those classic Halloween chills while also helping them better understand why Poe’s famous tale of loss and undying love has remained so popular over the years, standing the test of time since it was first published in 1845.
The production will be available to stream at anytime from October 23-31.
The Teen Scene Players are made up of students who are enrolled in the DCT Academy program.
