Westport Community Theatre Presents OLD TIME RADIO CHRISTMAS Tonight!

Join us tonight at 8:00 PM for one of our favorite WCT traditions - our fourth "Old-Time Radio Christmas" show! Get ready for some Great Performances and holiday cheer brought to you by this amazingly talented cast of WCT veteran actors reuniting on stage for this Old-Time Radio Christmas evening:

Tom Petrone, John Bachelder, Alexander Kulcsar, Jeff Pliskin, Sam Mink, Larry Greeley, John Pyron, Marc Hartog, Tom Rushen, Jack Rushen, Rob Nichols, Deborah Burke, Ruth Anne Baumgartner, Cindy Hartog, Erica Evelti, Sue O'Hara, Linda Gilmore and Ann Kinner.

Free to all, running approximately 80 minutes, we invite you to join us afterward for some WCT holiday cheer.

Step back in time to the studios of the "All In Your Mind Players," under the direction of Richard Mancini, where you'll watch the players perform two acclaimed classic radio plays from holiday seasons of bygone days... complete with sound effects and vintage period microphones.

The evening includes a cute and quite funny 1949 "Family Theatre" adaptation of Charles Tazewell's 1946 story "The Littlest Angel," originally performed by Loretta Young - a classic Christmas story of a little angel who is transformed from a celestial pest to the toast of the "town." Relive the golden age of radio with a special Christmas episode of the classic "Superman" radio series. And enjoy a special 1945 "Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" episode entitled "The Night Before Christmas" (based in part on the Conan Doyle original, "The Blue Carbuncle," for you Sherlockians). With Dr. Watson introducing the tale as he chats "by the fireside" with the announcer, settle back for a Yuletide adventure featuring Holmes, Watson, Mrs. Hudson and various and sundry supporting characters.

There will be period radio commercials and PSA's sprinkled throughout the progams, with live and recorded sound effects and music. We'd love to have you join us and look forward to seeing you tonight - and sharing some Christmas cheer afterward!
