Photo Flash: First Look at Lake Worth Playhouse's THE 1940s RADIO HOUR, 11/15-12/2

‚Äč
The Lake Worth Playhouse brings The 1940's Radio Hour to life. Radio Hour is a fun-filled, family-friendly evening of theatre just in time to summon up the holiday spirit. Get a sneak peek at the cast in the photos below!

The play portrays the final holiday broadcast of the struggling Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade as it takes to the air during World War II to record its broadcast for the troops overseas. It features hit songs from the era, dancing and old time sound effects. It's the story of a harassed producer whose lead singer is often drunk, a delivery boy who wants a chance behind the mic, a second banana who dreams of singing a ballad and a trumpet-playing sound effects man who chooses a fighter plane over Glenn Miller.

CAST

Clifton Feddington: The announcer and general manager (head of everything at WOV). He has ulcers from it all and is sometimes hysterical.

Ann Collier: The 'old standard' in the Radio show since its start in 1936. She sings like Dinah Shore, Doris Day and Peggy Lee (all rolled into one). She is a secretary by day and at looker by night who is dating Johnny.

Johnny Cantone: Featured vocalist with the Cavalcade who is on Sinatra's bandwagon. He's an ex-boxer and a rough guy who drinks too much and has a voice like velvet.

Ginger Brooks: A bubble-headed waitress-turned-singer. She has a pinup, Betty Grable look with lots of makeup and speaks with a Gracie Allen vacancy.

Geneva Lee Browne: The southern Belle of WOV got her start in music at age 17 performing in local Swing ballrooms around the Atlanta area.

B.J. Gibson: The third of the Gibson brothers to work for the Cavalcade. He is squeaky-clean, good looking, and a preppy student at Yale.

Connie Miller: A 17-year-old bobbysoxer from Ogden, Utah. She is perennially in love and runs an elevator by day.

Pops Bailey: A crotchety, wizened stage doorkeeper who is a racing bookie on the company phone and reads hidden copies of Show Girl magazine.

Lou Cohn: A big shot (at least in his own mind) who tries to impress the girls and is sometimes obnoxious. He runs the show and is the sound effects man.

Wally Ferguson: Young hopeful from Altoona, Pennsylvania who came to NYC to work for his uncle at the drugstore to get his big show-biz break.

Zoot Doubleman: WOV Orchestra Leader
