This month’s show will feature:

The Plot to Overthrow Christmas by Norman Corwin, adapted by Richard Fish and directed by Rich Rice

A Christmas Special that Overrules a Horrendous Plot. “The Plot to Overthrow Christmas” is a 2008 retelling of a treasure from the golden age of radio by Norman Corwin and the CBS Columbia Workshop. Although it pre-dates Dr Seuss by many years, there certainly is a marked similarity of style. This 35 minute romp of rhyming verse introduces us to Nero violining in hell and co-opted into a plot to assassinate Santa Claus. Except Santa Claus is not all as it seems, and sometimes the cold can do more to warm the heart than the flames of hell…

Another Merry Christmas written and directed by Jim Wicker

Santa returns home from his annual trip around the world delivering gifts, but this year he lacks his usual enthusiasm. It seems the troubles of the world are weighing on Santa’s mind, leaving him less jolly than usual. Can Santa’s personal assistant, the elf Izzy, help him regain his Christmas spirit?

Noel!!  Noel!! The Continuing Adventures of Noel Berlin, Cabaret Detective written by Paul Wilborn and Matt Cowley.

 

What can happen next? Murder, Mayhem and St Petersburg’s elite meet up in the second season of the popular series written for and by RTP Live! in cliff hanger episodes with cabaret music and stunning sound effects. Don’t miss a single month

In 1984 Wilkie received the Roy Hardee Award from the NC broadcast bureau of the Associated Press and later served on their Board of Directors. Now retired, Wilkie devotes all of his time to playwriting in his hometown of Shelby, NC where he is the founder and secretary of the Directors of the Greater Shelby (NC) Community Theatre.

Also there will be an installment of “The Continuing Adventures of Noel Berlin, Cabaret Detective”, by Paul Wilborn and Matt Cowley. The second season of the popular series features the ensemble members in cliff hanger episodes set in St Petersburg with cabaret music and stunning sound effects. Don’t miss a single month!
