Dennis James Hosts Halloween

Bloomington’s favorite musical mastermind, Dennis James, returns with a brand-new spin on his annual spooky spectacular.

This year, James will provide the soundtrack on IU Auditorium’s 4,543 pipe organ behind a live reenactment of the original 1940 radio drama Inner Sanctum featuring Bach’s Fugue in C Minor. Students from IU’s Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance will take the IU Auditorium stage to act out the suspenseful radio drama. This will be the first time live actors have ever been a part of Dennis James Hosts Halloween in his over 50 years of performing at the Auditorium.

James will still present a traditional silent film with live accompaniment in act two of his performance with the 1927 thriller titled The Unknown. This special family-friendly Halloween tradition is sure to be a treat!
