King University News :: King University Theatre to Present "A Twin City Radio Theatre Easter" on March 14

The King University Theatre Program’s Twin City Radio Theatre will treat audiences to a duo of Easter themed dramas from the golden age of radio.  The performance will be held Thursday, March 14 at the Fine Arts Theatre on the King University campus in Bristol, Tenn., at 7:30 p.m. 

Under the artistic direction of Christopher R. Slaughter, associate professor of theatre at King, the Twin City Radio Theatre Troupe brings the magic of old-time radio to the live stage, performing staged productions of classic radio dramas, with an emphasis on noted genre writers such as Edgar Allan Poe, H. G. Wells, Arthur Machen, Algernon Blackwood, Wyllis Cooper and Arthur Conan Doyle.

Each performance is a unique theatrical experience, not unlike what might have been seen in a radio studio in the 1930s or 1940s: actors gathered around microphones with scripts in hand, live sound effects and colorful hosts setting the proper mood for the evening’s dramatic offerings. 

“A Twin City Radio Theatre Easter” will feature live adaptations of the screwball comedy “The Giant Rabbit” and the classic drama “The Shadow of the Wings.”

Tickets to Twin City’s performances at King University are free.  Seating is limited, and, due to the show’s staging, audience members cannot be seated once the performance begins.  For more information, call (423) 652-4800 or visit: http://arts.king.edu.
