MIDDLETOWN, NJ – Are you ready to have your pants scared off by two creepy Halloween stories?

On a Country Road, and Edgar Allan Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart. Tickets are $12 and available online at www.middletownarts.org, or by calling 732-786-4100.
On a Country Road was an episode of the famous Suspense radio program in 1950 and starred Cary Grant. It frightened the radio audience again in 1954, and once more in 1959, this time starring Howard Duff and Ida Lapino. The Tell-Tale Heart, the famous Gothic horror story, was written by Edgar Allen Poe in 1843 and still carries the power to make our blood run cold. It was produced on the radio in 1938, starring Boris Karloff, famous for the “monster” in the classic 1931 film “Frankenstein.”
