"Night of the Frankenclown" An Original Youth Drama
WKMS and the middle school kids of Calloway County Public Library bring to you an original story of terror and suspense, of a dreadful monster that turns one slumber party into a nightmarish evening of fear and chaos, that twists the imagination toward the realm of the unknown, and a night none are sure to forget until their dying day. One would think that a night with a clown would be one filled with jolly and laughter, but not on this... "NIGHT OF THE FRANKENCLOWN!"
During fall break, a group of middle school kids met at the Calloway County Public Library with WKMS Youth Radio Producer Matt Markgraf, to learn all about the radio dramas of yesteryear. In a two-hour workshop, they learned how to tell a story using voice, description, and sound effects and worked on an original spooky story for Halloween.
The story was written, and performed by: Rachel Thompson, Elizabeth Curtis, Joz Mikulcek, Samantha Radomski, and Oskar Vazquez. Matt Markgraf provides narration and post-production. Special thanks to Sandy Linn and Emily Robertson for coordinating the event. We hope you survived to share this original story with friends and family members!
