The 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.
