King University News :: King College’s Twin City Radio Theatre to Celebrate Christmas on Stage

The King College Theatre Program’s Twin City Radio Theatre will present two heartwarming Christmas radio plays on Dec. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Theatre at King College in Bristol, Tenn.  

The first feature, The Magic Christmas Tree, is from the classic radio series, Our Miss Brooks, and is a comic story about a young high school teacher spending Christmas Eve on her own until she buys a Christmas tree from a young boy.  Hilarity ensues when the tree works its magic. 

The second feature is Berlin 1945 and dramatizes Christmas Eve in Berlin, 1945.  A group of American soldiers have gathered for a meal when a strange guest joins them.

The Twin City Radio Theatre is under the direction of Christopher R. Slaughter, associate professor of theatre for King, and features the following King students: sophomore Austin Abshire, sophomore Chip Hanks, sophomore Stephanie Haun, sophomore Andre Lattimore, senior Christina Matheson, sophomore Philip Mueller, sophomore Mickensie Neely, junior Trung Phan, junior Tamara Tester, and sophomore Natasha Trombly.  Also, there will be a special appearance from Elizabeth Dollar, associate professor of theatre and director of King’s Theatre program.

Tickets for the performances of Twin City Radio Theatre Christmas are $5.00 general admission and free for King College students, faculty, and staff with a King College ID.  Tickets will be available at the door one hour before each performance.  Seating is limited, and, due to the staging, audience members cannot be seated once the performance begins.
