The Twin City Radio Theatre Troupe of King University’s Theatre Department will treat
audiences to a trio of mystery themed dramas from the golden age of radio. “The Hitch-Hiker
and Other Chilling Tales” will be held Oct. 18-19 at 7:30 p.m. at on Oct. 20 at 2:30
p.m. at the Theatre Bristol Artspace at 512 State Street in Bristol, Tenn.
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.
The evening will include three plays by Lucille Fletcher including the classic, “The
Hitch-Hiker,” a radio play written for Orson Welles. Welles first performed “The
Hitch-Hiker” in Nov. 1941 on CBS Radio. The play was later adapted for a 1960s episode
of The Twilight Zone.
Tickets to Twin City’s performances at Theatre Bristol Artspace Oct. 18-20 are $5
general admission, $2 for area students, and free with a King University ID. For
ticket information, call (423) 652-4800 or visit http://arts.king.edu.
