Indiana Public Radio Theatre proudly presents an authentic radio drama on Thursday, Dec. 14, 2023, live on-air and before an audience in Sursa Performance Hall on the Ball State campus.
ALL OUT FOR CHRISTMAS: A SHOWBIZ RADIO FABLE
Will the show go on? It’s 1947, and a big Broadway star has come to a small Midwest radio station to be in their annual Christmas radio show. Will her appearance save the radio station from financial ruin? Will the ingenue and the young radio technician be able to compose a catchy melody to sell the show?
IPR Radio Dramas feature community and campus actors, musicians and singers who through their live performance, transport listeners back to a different time, evoking memories of shared experiences, and reminding people of a bygone era when imagination played a more significant role in entertainment. Live music and sound effects help recreate an authentic radio drama reminiscent of the Golden Age of Radio.
Audience members play a crucial role in the radio drama experience by actively engaging with the narrative and reacting to the emotions presented through audio.
Attendees should be seated by 7:30 p.m. and will be treated to a pre-show program including a sound effects demonstration.
Tune in at 8pm for the live broadcast on Indiana Public Radio.
