Park Square Theatre is delighted to announce that The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society show will now coming to you LIVE and with a new twist on the classic radio show. Instead of coming through the airwaves, the broadcast will come to you via Zoom!

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society presents
OLD TIME RADIO: LITERARY ADAPTATIONS
June 15. 7:30 pm
Hosted online by Park Square Theatre

This month, the Society brings you two never-before-heard audio plays adapted from the pages of classic literature. Each play is presented in the format of a fictional old-time radio show, including commercials, music and sound effects.

Our first play is “The Great God Pan” from The Weird Library, adapted by Tim Uren from the novella by Arthur Machen. Young Helen Vaughan is plagued by strange happenings and mysterious deaths. Is she the victim of tragic circumstances or the perpetrator of supernatural crimes?

Next we bring you a classic mystery, “The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb” from A Toast to Murder, adapted by Joshua English Scrimshaw from the short story by Agatha Christie.  Belgian detective Hercule Poirot must abandon the logic of his little grey cells and embrace the power of superstition in order to break the terrible curse of Pharaoh Men-her-Ra!

The MORLS cast will present each of these new recordings via a live stream, with live introductions and an interactive post-show discussion. Ticket holders will be first to experience this new series of online events featuring recreations of classic tales of crime, horror, and suspense from the golden age of radio!

How will it work?

  • Ticket holders will receive an email with the invitation to the Zoom performance the morning of the performance.
  • The Virtual Lobby for the performance will open at 7:30 PM, and the program will begin at shortly after as all are assembled.
  • This experience will only be available to ticket holders.
