Monmouth Community Players Presents The Second Annual WHEN RADIO WAS KING
Monmouth Community Players presents the second annual "When Radio Was King"
Before there was Netflix, Hulu and cable TV, families would crowd around the radio to listen to their favorite shows. The Monmouth Community Players invites audiences to take a trip into the past and experience a live radio show in the second annual production "When Radio Was King." This production is being directed by Linda Duarte of Lewiston, with music direction by Bob Gilbert and Cindy Dunham of Winthrop filling the role of producer.
The audience can expect to see an authentic old-time radio show, complete with old vaudeville comedy routines, sketches and commercials including sound effects - just like they would experience if they were in the audience of a real radio program. If you had a problem would you turn to Sherlock Holmes or do you, perhaps, think Father Knows Best? Can you solve the 5 Minute Mystery? Come see us as we present these and other sketches and entertain you with some of the beautiful songs of the era.
The cast is a mixture of vocal and comedic talent, ages ranging from 13 to 70+, consisting of: Andy Tolman of Readfield; Gregor Smith of Belgrade; Ginger Smith, Sara St. Clair and Christine Michaud of Winthrop; Sarah Wheatley of Old Town; Kathleen Brainerd of Gardiner; Josie French and Danny Gay of Lewiston; Jim Wright of Fayette; Jeffrey Fairfield of Hallowell; Brittany Bazinet of Greene; and Ray Fletcher, David Marshall, Carol Griffiths and Megan Record of Monmouth.
The show will be performed at the historic Cumston Hall in downtown Monmouth. The show runs one weekend, February 16-18, 2018 at 7:30 pm Friday, 2pm and 7:30 pm Saturday and at 2pm on Sunday. Tickets are $14 for General Admission and $12 for Students and Seniors.
