DARK SHADOWS LIVES ON IN NEW AUDIO DRAMAS – with original cast!

DARK SHADOWS, television’s legendary Gothic soap opera is set for a resurgence of interest in 2011, as director Tim Burton starts work on a big screen remake starring Johnny Depp. But the legacy of the original ABC‐TV series is alive and well, continuing in a series of brand‐new audio dramas from Big Finish Productions, starring the classic cast, produced under official license from Dan Curtis Productions.

Since 2006, Big Finish has released over 20 new stories, featuring Dark Shadows favourites such as David Selby (Quentin Collins), Lara Parker (Angelique), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans) and a special one‐off return from Jonathan Frid as vampire Barnabas Collins. Each story is presented in radio play format, with state‐of‐the‐art sound design and effects, backed with original music scores, including classic compositions by original composer Robert Cobert.

“Audio asks the listener to create the entire scene in their head, just by listening to these voices,” says Lara Parker, who returns as the dangerous witch Angelique. “The audience has to participate very strongly in audio drama, and that’s excellent for Dark Shadows.”

“It’s been wonderful to hear the original actors recreate their roles, 40 years on,” says Dark Shadows series producer Stuart Manning. “Their devotion to these characters is wonderful, and it’s been a fantastic experience picking up where the series left off.” Further Dark Shadows audio stories are planned for 2011, as the show celebrates its 45th Anniversary.

 The Dark Shadows audio dramas are available on CD and
