The story takes place at the abbey-turned-castle of wealthy Prince Prospero. Prospero has invited 1,000 other nobles to join him in this fortress to escape the Red Death, a terrible plague with horrible symptoms that has destroyed thousands of lives.

Cast Requirements:
 
One of the interesting things about doing radio drama is that you don’t have to look the part to perform the part. A short guy can play a basketball player or a sweet little girl can play a cranky old woman or a teenager can play a senior citizen. Case in point is an actor named Casey Kasem. He started playing Shaggy in the Scooby-Doo cartoons when he was thirty-seven years old and kept at it until he was seventy-seven. It also means you can use as few or as many actors as you’d like. If you have any questions about how any of this works drop me a line at dchapelle-suite@gmail.com
