“Three Chilling Suspense Dramas from the Golden Age of Radio” – January 17/18, 2014 – Vista Grand High School Theater in Casa Grande, AZ

Three chilling suspense dramas from the Golden Age of radio were performed on stage along with hand-operated Foley sound effects and dramatic musical effects during three performances on January 17 and 18, 2014 at the Vista Grande High School theater in Casa Grande, Arizona. The audience was also treated to the original commercial jingles sung live on stage. The Great Southwest Radio Theatre players, directed by Ralph Swain, are from the "East Valley" between Phoenix and Tucson. Three classic radio dramas...Lucille Fletcher's "The Hitchhiker" and "Sorry, Wrong Number!" followed by an episode from the Escape radio mystery series "Three Skeleton Key" were performed on stage. When the "On Air" sign lit, the audience was transported back to 1940's America when radio was the only medium that brought live entertainment and information into the living rooms of millions of homes. Radio drama in this era was known as the "Theatre of the Mind," creating an aural experience that those old enough to remember will never forget and, for those too young to know, how it used to be!
