Great Southwest Radio Theatre Project LIVE Radio Dramas!
April 24, 2015 GSR at Robson Ranch, Eloy AZ!
The BlackBox Foundation brings to the Hermosa Ballroom stage this coming April 24th, two old-time radio dramas presented by Ralph Swain's Great Southwest Radio Theatre Project (GSR) of Coolidge, AZ.
A radio play from the popular, long-running Suspense radio series entitled I Saw Myself Running, is a story about a woman who has nightmares about a shadowy figure lurking at the top of a long staircase that portends something evil. Running is a haunting story that will keep you in suspense until the very end.
This drama will be followed by the light-hearted and very successful radio serial Fibber McGee and Molly which ran for nearly 20 years from the mid-1930s to the mid-1950s. In the episode Chocolate Candy, Fibber racks his brain to figure out who sent his long-suffering wife, Molly, a box of chocolates. As was always the scenario, the McGee household was constantly interrupted by visitors randomly dropping in with one request or another, all to the frustration of Fibber who is preoccupied by the mystery of that box of chocolates.
The GSR players have been performing around the Central Valley from Florence to Tucson since 2013 to audiences young and old. GSR uses the original radio scripts punctuated by dramatic recorded music and sound effects, both digital and hand-operated. All GSR performances include brief interludes with the actors singing commercial jingles from the Golden Age of Radio as well as lively Jazz songs from the era.
