The H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society presents a special live performance of "Dagon: War of Worlds"! This will be the first time they have performed this live for an audience!

"Dagon: War of Worlds" picks up where "Shadow Over Innsmouth" left off and is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft stories "Dagon", The Shadow Over Innsmouth", and "The Temple". This production features original music by Reber Clark and Troy Sterling Nies, both of whom will be joining the HPLHS radio drama cast on stage with live accompaniment and sound effects. This is radio drama that you can SEE as well as HEAR!

Sean is a producer, actor, director and writer with the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society which he runs with his nefarious colleague, Andrew Leman. He was intimately involved in the creation of the motion pictures The Call of Cthulhu and The Whisperer in Darkness, nineteen episodes of Dark Adventure Radio Theatre, and many other Lovecraftian projects. With his work at the HPLHS, he's created many other Lovecraftian entertainments. Sean also produces and directs live theatre in Los Angeles. He plays ice hockey and has four chinchillas.

Andrew Leman is one of the founding members of the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society, and has produced a number of literary, film, theatrical, music, prop and gaming projects there over the decades with his longtime friend and collaborator Sean Branney. He has written and produced more than 20 live-action Lovecraftian role-playing games. He wrote and directed the first HPLHS film, "The Testimony of Randolph Carter", directed "The Call of Cthulhu", and co-wrote and co-produced The Whisperer in Darkness.

As composer for the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s Dark Adventure Radio Theatre Reber, Clark has composed music for Dagon: War of Worlds, The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and Herbert West: Reanimator. His movie, Lovecraft Paragraphs, premiered at the 2009 H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival. His music is featured on The H. P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast. His music for wind ensemble is published worldwide by C. Alan Publications, Columbia Pictures Publications and Warner Brothers Music Publications.

Troy Sterling Nies is a composer, paramedic, physician assistant, and gamer. His diverse experiences and vocations have provided him with a rich and often dark resource from which to find inspiration for composing to film. Originally born in Bismarck, North Dakota, he now resides in the Badlands-area of western N.D. Troy maintains a studio in his home and composes for a wide variety of media, including feature films, video games, concert hall, stage, acid-rock bands and everything in between for projects across the globe.

Andrew John Migliore (born 1966 in Washington D.C., United States) is the founder and original director of the annual H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland Oregon. Andrew is the co-author of Lurker in the Lobby: The Guide to the Cinema of H. P. Lovecraft published by Night Shade Books and was founder and producer at Lurker Films where he launched The H. P. Lovecraft CollectionThe Weird Tale Collection, and The Edgar Allan Poe Collection on DVD.

In 1998 Scott Glancy left a perfectly functional career as an attorney to join up with the role-playing game publisher Pagan Publishing, the nerd equivalent of running away to join the Foreign Legion. Today Scott is the man in charge of Pagan Publishing (much in the same sense that the last surviving legionnaire can be said to be in command of Fort Zinderhoff). Pagan’s most recent project is “Horrors of War,” an anthology of scenarios set during the Great War for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game.
