Who’s on first?

14 Nov


Readers Theatre

Don’t miss the chance to see your favorite old time comics on stage in the Classic Radio Comedy Show at the Historic Atlas Theatre on November 15-17. Show times are Friday at 7:30 pm, Saturday at 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 2:00 pm. Tickets are still available through the CLTP ticketing website.

Harken back to a simpler time

Back in the day, we got our fix of entertainment through the radio. Families tuned in every week to listen to their favorite comedians like Abbott and Costello, Burns and Allen, and Ozzie and Harriet. Relive those memories this weekend with a great cast of actors and actresses, as the Cheyenne Little Theatre Players present the Classic Radio Comedy Show.

A good read

This show is being performed as a readers theatre, in order to give you that truly authentic radio show feeling. Actors are statically arranged on the stage behind microphones, rather than moving about the stage as you would see in a typical play. That way you can concentrate on the voices, setting the scene in your mind, just as you would when listening to your radio.

Unique experience

One of the funner, but more challenging aspects of putting on a show like this, is creating the sound effects. It wouldn’t be quite the same without those background noises, and all of the sound effects are created by the actors themselves. The old radio shows had to cut away to commercials every now and then, and this show is no exception to that rule. Local advertisers will be featured in between segments, in the same style you were used to when gathering around the radio with the family.
