Public Access Theatre to Wrap Season with THE REVENGE OF RADIO GOGGLES, 11/9-12/14
RADIO GOGGLES is back, so bring the whole family! As a finale to their stellar third season in Public Access Theatre, Oracle is proud to announce the next installment of the series that audiences love - just in time for the holidays. THE REVENGE OF RADIO GOGGLES opens November 9, and runs through December 14, 2013 at Oracle Theatre (3809 N Broadway in Chicago). Performances are Friday, Saturday, and Monday nights at 8PM. Sundays are devoted to touring area nursing homes and retirement communities. There are no performances Thanksgiving weekend. Press are invited to attend November 9 - or any night during the run.
Admission to THE REVENGE OF RADIO GOGGLES is free in Oracle's Public Access Theatre, and the content is appropriate for all ages. Reservations are highly recommended, and can be made at publicaccesstheatre.org. Seats are sponsored by The Forty 4, a growing population of individuals and local businesses committed to making free art for all. The Law Offices of Salvi, Schostok and Pritchard are the official sponsors of Public Access Theatre in 2013.
Previously this year, Oracle's outreach program, The Radio Movement, toured three radio shows to area nursing homes, retirement communities, the Jesse Brown VA Medical Center, and inpatient psychiatric hospitals. These performances were free of charge to the facilities and communities, and Oracle performed for over 400 residents. RADIO GOGGLES is an opportunity to showcase these special performances for the general public. The mission of The Radio Movement is simple: Everyone lives with art, no matter what. If they can't come to Oracle, then Oracle will go to them. Hannah Friedman, Oracle's Director of Community Outreach, adds, "But it's not enough to bring a show to people - at Oracle, we're committed to artistic excellence in all we do. Our radio plays have their own unique aesthetic. We encourage our directors to experiment with new ways to stage each play, incorporating techniques like clowning or mime. We are proud to bring these plays to people all over Chicago for free - and we're excited to bring them to our audiences at Oracle."
