RE-IMAGINED RADIO

Re-imagined radio

What is Re-Imagined Radio?
Start with a 1936 theatre. Re-enact historic radio dramas complete with voice actors and Foley sound artists. Garnish with digital SFX, music, and visual backdrops. Overlay student digital interpretations of the base narrative. Invite a live audience to watch, eat popcorn, and participate via social media. The result: Re-Imagined Radio—storytelling as never before heard, or seen.

 

Join us for our 2018 season featuring:
September 26th – DRACULA
Dracula, as a radio drama, is adapted from Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel of the same name. Mr. Stoker, an Irish writer and theatre manager, wrote his novel to address the fears and uncertainties of Victorian society in the late 19th century. Dracula continues to signify fears of the unnatural, and how abnormality can evolve from one source and infect the surrounding society with discord, misfortunes, and evil. In July 1938, Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre on the Air presented a radio drama adaption of Stoker’s novel. Since then, the radio script has lain dormant . . . buried in a box . . . covered with earth . . . waiting to emerge. It was revived through arcane galvanic sciences and careful administrations of elixers and tonics and is presented with the intent of sending a skittering up your spine, a preview of Halloween!
General admission tickets are in $8 advance, $12 day of show. VIP tickets (limited to 25) are $50. 

 

October 30th – THE WAR OF THE WORLDS 80th Anniversary
The War of the Worlds was first broadcast eighty years ago on this night. Even if you have never heard the radio broadcast, you know the story. Join us for this anniversary night tribute and enjoy a re-imagined live performance of the most (in)famous radio broadcast of all time.

 

November 21st – A DB COOPER TALE
D.B. Cooper is a local legend, and whether or not you agree with his actions, the story is more than amazing! Join us for this original radio drama. Locally written, locally produced, and locally acted, this re-imagined depiction of the D.B. Cooper legend promises a look from multiple perspectives, and a surprise ending! Proper dress requested: Dark business suit, white shirt, skinny black tie, black raincoat, black slip on loafers, and dark eyeglasses.

 

December 20th – A RADIO CHRISTMAS CAROL
A Radio Christmas Carol is adapted from the 1938 radio broadcast by The Mercury Theatre on the Air, narrated by Orson Welles. That performance was itself inspired by the Charles Dickens novella, A Christmas Carol, first published in 1843, and never out of print since. This popularity and the spirit of the story are appropriate to the holiday season. The message of this live re-imagined performance—humanity far outweighs riches—is timely as we contemplate the changes and uncertainties ahead of us, as a culture, a community, a country. Join us for this holiday classic. Food donations for those less fortunate appreciated.
