RADIOTHEATRE Now in it’s 7th Season…RadioTheatre combines the artistry created during the Golden years of Radio when Sound was king and Story Telling, along with great voices, music and sound effects…as well as, the individual imaginations of its audiences…were the primary ingredients used to provide a memorable, live, theatrical experience. Of course, we do like to add some 21st Century touches…such as cinematic scripts, fully scored orchestral sound tracks which you won‘t hear anywhere else, a plethora of aural effects and, sometimes, a few visuals, too…creating a unique production with non-traditional, modern, innovative stage presentation!
