The High Point Theatre will host the third annual Halloween Reader's Theatre Oct. 29-30 on the High Point Theatre stage at 8 p.m.
The works of Truman Capote, William Shakespeare and Edgar Allan Poe will come to life as High Point Theatre director Steve Willis performs their classic tales from the dark side.Willis came up with the idea of having this event as a way to raise money for the Friends of the High Point Theatre, the theater's volunteer support organization.
An adjunct professor in the theater department of High Point University, Willis received his master's degree in acting/directing from UNCG and his bachelor's degree in English/theater from Averett College. Currently, Willis is working on a reader's theater production featuring poetry and short stories by North Carolina Writers.
Acting with Willis in this year's Halloween reader's theater is David Gatten, a junior at UNCG majoring in film. Gatten has recently written, directed and produced three short films and is an integral part of the Carolina Film and Video Festival held each year at UNCG.
