A budding tradition and must-see at the annual Stanley Film Festival in Estes Park, CO is Tales From Beyond the Pale Live, an in-flesh, festival-tailored iteration of the Larry Fessenden & Glenn McQuaid-produced horror audio dramas. One of the festivals more experiential events, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live: The Stanley Edition is written exclusively for the Stanley and features performers in person, as well as the magic of live foley, sound and music. Its a treat that both reveals the form and yet draws you in even further.
At the 2015 Stanley Film Festival, taking place April 30-May 3 at the Stanley Hotel, Tales From Beyond the Pale Live is entitled The Stanley Edition: Parlor Tricks. Taking place Friday, May 1st at 7 p.m. sharp at The Historic Park Theatre, Parlor Tricks is comprised of two tales: Cold Reading, written by Glenn McQuaid & newcomer to Tales, April Snellings (writer and editor at Rue Morgue Magazine and co-editor of the book Horror Movie Heroes); and No Signal by Larry Fessenden.
The show will feature the voice talents of Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, We Are Still Here) and Leon Vitali (Barry Lyndon, Terror of Frankenstein) as well as Larry Fessenden (We Are Still Here, Body, Habit). The rest of the cast will be filled by very special guests.
“This will be my third year at Stanley, second with Tales. It’s a very special fest, feels like ‘we’ve always been there'”, says Fessenden.
“We’re there to scare,” adds McQuaid
Also joining the Tales crew is Glass Eye Pix regular Graham Reznick (director of I Can See You, The Viewer) on Sound Design and Music, as well as Tales stalwarts Chris Skotchdopole and Tessa Price on foley, and Lee Nussbaum on tech. Jenn Wexler produces with the Pale Men. Rebekah Brown associate produces.
