Metropolis Presents Virtual Online Performances Of Radio Classics With METROPOLIS: ON THE AIR

Metropolis Performing Arts Centre and Hollywood 360 Radio present an evening of spine-tingling suspense thrillers - On The Air - live theatrical productions of classic radio plays March 27-April 4, 2021.

In the chilling tale Sorry, Wrong Number, a shut-in accidentally overhears a murderer's plot to kill another woman. Unable to contact her husband and written off by the police, Mrs. Stevenson gradually uncovers a sinister plot that may involve the black market, a crime syndicate and a college rival.

On a Country Road is a classic mystery of a traveling couple, lost in endless tracts of farmland, who hear news bulletins of a deranged killer recently escaped from a local asylum. Further lost while testing yet another shortcut, the couple become stranded and must confront life and death decisions.

In the great tradition of classic radio shows, Metropolis: On The Air will be recorded live, onstage, by an excellent ensemble. The On The Air series is available on any streaming device that can handle the suspense.
