A few years ago ARTC had an opportunity to perform a Halloween show for the public. We try to perform in October whenever possible as it is a month especially suited to our horror and science fiction roots. Our forte has always been conventions and other semi-private events where our time slot was somewhat limited and so we usually only had time for one feature piece, or maybe a series of shorts. We always performed them just once.
But when you perform for the public you sometimes have the opportunity to repeat a show or even…dare I say it…have a run of a show. Furthermore, we were able to expand the time slot to include the series of shorts and the feature piece. Faced with the prospect of having more material to work with than usual and the fact that very few people had heard of any of our work at the time (outside of our loyal fans…hi, everybody) we felt the need to choose a marketable title for the overall show. We found one in our own catalog.
Into the Labyrinth was (and is) our in-house imprint for original horror and dark fantasy. It was one of our first, along with the audio magazine The Centauri Express, and the introduction about the “simple garden maze”, masterfully presented by William Brown, appears on a number of our studio productions. It seemed appropriate to use the title to help promote our live show of similar material.
As our podcast continues, you will hear many excerpts from various Into the Labyrinth shows. We hope you enjoy them all. This week features Mildly Exciting Tales of Astonishment: Sweet Revenge and Nikki’s Place: The Collectors.
