"You know Buntport they're kind of insane," says Norma Moore, artistic director for Stories on Stage. Maybe that's not what attracts you to a night out, but I can't think of a better reason to head down to Buntport Theater, 717 Lipan Street, tonight at 7 p.m. for the opening of Stories on Stage: Tales of Mystery and Suspense.
This time around, Stories is highlighted by a layer of craziness as the Buntport players inject five dramatically read tales of suspense with sound and movement effects choreographed to create a cohesive whole. "When we do the Stories on Stage, we do more than just read them," says Buntporter Brian Colonna. "We'd like to experiment with some of the Foley-type sounds like they do for the movies while not taking away from the suspense of the story. It's like a machine. We're showing the apparatus as it works."
