Tucson, Arizona--Pima Community College Theatre Arts, in conjunction with Literacy Connects and Big Read Connects Tucson, presents a clever series of haunting dramatizations of Edgar Allen Poe's most popular works—The Tell Tale Heart, The Black Cat, The Raven, Annabel Lee, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Premature Burial and The Poetic Principle—artfully woven into one story by Richard McElvian. Poe's Midnight Dreary threads together the events of Poe's life and his work as he deliriously remembers each story on an anonymous deathbed in a Baltimore hospital.

Poe's Midnight Dreary is produced by PCC theatre arts under the coordination of Todd Poelstra, and performed by the following Tucson area high schools: Desert View (The Tell Tale Heart) directed by Ericka Quintero, Mountain View (The Black Cat) directed by Shannon Kerstetter, Sabino (The Raven) directed by Kris Kissel, Tanque Verde (Annabel Lee) directed by Debbie MacKinney, Canyon Del Oro (The Fall of the House of Usher) directed by Robert Cannon, Rincon/University (The Premature Burial) directed by  Maryann Green, and Salpointe (The Poetic Principle) directed by Dana Miline. PCC theatre students will act as ambassadors to the high schools and assist with backstage coordination and technical support. The event is free and open to the public. The run time is two hours.

The Pima Community College Center for the Arts is located on West Campus at 2202 West Anklam Road, Tucson (just west of downtown). For ticket information contact the box office at 206-6986 or
