Get in cahoots with the spooks — also known as “The Penn Cove Players” — who promise to make the frightening exciting at this month’s production of Postcards from Whidbey Island. The event will be held at the Performing Arts Center at Coupeville High School at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 and 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 28.

Highlighting the show will be mystery radio play from the 1940s, a local history skit, a new-time radio serial, hilarity, audience participation and live sound effects with plenty of live music by Whidbey Island’s own DB Jazz, featuring guest vocalist Anastasia Brencick, co-founder of the Penn Cove Productions.

Tickets are $16 each. Refreshments are available during intermission.Tickets can be purchased in advance at Local Grown (coffee shop) and Lind’s Drug in Coupeville, Bayleaf in Oak Harbor, and Anchor Books and Coffee in Clinton. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
