Experience some old timey radio at the Robin Theater in Lansing this weekend as the Audio Air Force troupe brings the classic tale of “Dracula” and the not-so-classic tale of “The Chicken Heart” to life. We’ll sit in on the rehearsal and speak with the troupe’s founder, Dave Downing.

Just in time for Halloween, the Audio Air Force troupe comes to the Robin Theater in Lansing's REO Town ready for their next and final production of 2016. It’s a double bill of radio theater including the campy horror of something called “The Chicken Heart,” plus a more traditional retelling of Bram Stoker’s classic vampire story, “Dracula.”

Current State’s Jamie Paisley sits in on the first rehearsal to speak with the troupe’s founder, Dave Downing.
