This months program will include “The Last Radio Drama”, by Ludy Marvin Wilkie, Directed by Jim Wicker.

“The Last Radio Drama” is a play about actors in a 1950s radio soap opera who face the cancellation of their show as radio loses audience to television. We’ll hear scenes from the soap and scenes of the company’s attempts to save the show.

Ludy Marvin Wilkie, playwright, is a retired radio newscaster. 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!

fringe_radioThe Radio Theatre Project is excited to be part of Fringe Radio at the Atlanta Fringe Festival. From now until June 30, Shelter and Live Alligator Wrestling will be up for listening on the Fringe Radio Site, along with some fantastic other productions from producers across the country.

There’s a discussion with our Artistic Director Mimi Rice on the Atlanta Fringe blog:

“Our mission is to provide a place where people can experience artistic and educational programs in innovative ways; to bring people from diverse cultural backgrounds and experiences together as artists, audiences and volunteers.”

 

You’ve got two shows in the festival. So, what’s the skinny on them?
“Shelter” – As authorities warn of a deadly storm hitting the Tampa Bay area, four friends confront the past and the unknown to survive the afternoon. Playwright Matt Cowley (pictured above) is WMNF -88.5 FM Community Radio Web Manager, producer of Soundstage Audio Theatre and RTP Live!’s Foley master.

“Live Alligator Wrestling” – Alligator-tourism was pioneered in Florida by an enterprising huckster named Owen Godwin Sr. who developed a backyard pit full of reptiles into the mega-attraction known today as Gatorland.

But nevermind the gators.  Behind every successful man .. stands a woman.

Owen and Pearl Godwin pioneered alligator-wrestling as a tourist attraction in Florida — but the sparring in their marriage could be just as entertaining.
