We celebrate the publication of LARA PARKER‘s new novel "Dark Shadows - Heiress of Collinwood." The book debuts here, before its November publication. Available 50th Anniversary commemoratives items for sale include apparel, a retro-style color-illustrated metal lunchbox, and a DVD collection from MPI.

 

Confirmed Attending Guests,

n addition to newly-announced MITCHELL RYAN (Burke Devlin):

LARA PARKER (beautiful witch Angelique), JOHN KARLEN (vampire caretaker Willie Loomis), NANCY BARRETT (headstrong heiress Carolyn Stoddard), JAMES STORM (menacing ghost Gerard), KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT (waitress/governess Maggie Evans), ROGER DAVIS (painter Charles Delaware Tate), LISA RICHARDS (werewolf girlfriend Sabrina Stuart), and JAMES HALL (Willie Loomis #1).

 

Also joining us: Scenic Designer SY TOMASHOFF. He was responsible for DS’ memorably distinctive sets, props, etc. as the show crossed from the 1600s-1971, plus Parallel Time periods and a “flash-forward” sequence set in 1995. Sy was nominated numerous times and has won Emmy Awards for his work on other daytime series, notably THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL.

 

Also joining us: Emmy and Grammy-nominated composer ROBERT COBERT wrote and arranged the DS music. He will be present to autograph special limited edition copies of the "Original Music from Dark Shadows" soundtrack album. First issued in 1969, it was a Top 20 album that year and remains in the Top 10 of best-selling TV scores of all time. That 1969 release on regular black vinyl included a distinctive color front cover and a B&W back cover, plus a B&W photo insert poster of Jonathan Frid as Barnabas and David Selby as Quentin.

 

This past April, a special limited edition purple vinyl album was released for National Record Store Day. It replicates the covers and includes the 2 poster inserts. Although this limited edition record sold out nationally, a quantity of less than 200 was held in reserve for this Oct. 29 event. Attendees may purchase the album at the reduced price of $20.00 and have it autographed personally by DS composer Bob Cobert.
