A Live Presentation of Hammond's Horror Genre Writings

The Creature Feature is a two part program that opens with a reading of “The Pet,” and spotlights a live adaptation of John Hays Hammond, Jr.’s never-before-seen play, “The Termite Monster,” both of which are a part of Hammond’s collection of creative stories.

“A Wondrous New Species” (aka The Pet) tells the story of two intrepid explorers who discover a strange creature in the jungle. At first intent on taking her back to their museum as a new specimen, it soon becomes clear that there is more to her than meets the eye.

“The Termite Monster” is a sci-fi horror comedy written in the style of the classic “B-movie” genre popular in the 1950s. It is a tale of the brilliant-but-obsessed termite scientist, Dr. David Pius. When he experiments with a serum to enhance his physical abilities, he accidentally transforms himself into the most frightening monster imaginable.

The entire Creature Feature program will run approximately 45 minutes in length, taking place inside the Museum’s Great Hall and Courtyard.

Performances will be held:
Tuesday, October 19th at 7, 8 & 9pm
Saturday October 23rd at 6,7, 8 & 9pm
Tuesday, October 26th at 7, 8 & 9pm
