From Orson Welles and the thrilling Mercury Theatre broadcasts of the 1930’s to Guy Noir and the hilarity of A Prairie Home Companion, the radio play has been one of America’s most beloved art forms. Arts Garage is proud to present a new initiative called the Arts Garage Radio Theatre. Scripts adapted from classic movies during the heyday of radio will be performed live, with performers utilizing specially designed sound effect devices, providing a nostalgic trip to the past with a modern twist.
Inspired by Arts Garage’s summer production of Beyond the Rainbow, the Arts Garage Radio Theatre brings to life one of Judy Garland’s most famous films. As aspiring actress Vicki Lester rises to stardom, her once famous husband Norman Maine sinks into a downward spiral of alcoholism and obscurity.
