LAGUNA HILLS...Following the lead of podcasts such as Welcome to Night Vale and Thrilling Adventure Hour, the live show Earbud Theater: Escape!, co-produced by On the Edge Theatre Productions, will give both fans of the show and newcomers a unique live experience, and a chance to witness the creation of science fiction radio drama in-person, including live sound effects and other sonic tricks.

"Earbud Theater is all about using audio storytelling to stimulate the imagination; the opportunity to tell strange and fantastic stories without being limitedby a special effects budget is what draws us to it", says Nicholas Thurkettle, a writer with the podcast. Thurkettle will be co=producer and director for the live event, and has written the two stories which will be performed. Escape! (The End of Humanity Song) is about an estranged brother and sister who are reunited by a mysterious message from their father, a leading scientist who has disappeared. And Cushing Von Heffernan: Bite Investigator, is about the famously brilliant and infamously rude expert you call for health problems that seems a little supernatural.

Earbud Theater was created in 2012 by former Disney studios feature film executive Casey Wolfe, and to date has released over two dozen original shows, including an adaptation of a Neil Gaiman short story, Shoggoth's Old Peculiar, approved by Gaiman himself. The podcast has received hundreds of thousands of streams and downloads, and has won multiple Audio Verse Awards.

Earbud Theater: Escape! will play February 24th & 25th at 7pm, March 3rd & 4th at 7pm, with a matinee March 4th at 2pm. General Admission is $15, children 12 and under are free with paying adult.

Performances will be held at the Laguna Hills Community Center, 25555 Alicia Pkwy., Laguna Hills 92653.
