The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society presents classic tales from the Golden Age of Radio, performed in the style of a vintage radio broadcast, including commercials, music and live sound effects. In April, the Society brings you the best of the WORST of old-time radio! These stories feature such bizarre characters and audacious plot twists, they have to be heard to be believed!

Our first recreation is “Cat Wife” from Lights Out. The title says it all really. Part horror, part satire, part incoherent fever dream. The original 1936 broadcast featured a truly over-the-top performance from Boris Karloff as the husband of the titular cat wife.

Next we present “Spawn of the Subhuman” from Dark Fantasy, first aired in 1942. To describe this ridiculous tale of terror would only ruin what is, without a doubt, one of the weirdest old-time radio stories we’ve ever heard. Expect the unexpected!

*In light of COVID-19, Park Square Theatre and the The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society are currently exploring online distribution methods for the April and May performances.
