The Radio Play Disaster: A Radio Play

Director: Bree Beal
Performances: March 12 - 21
Rehearsals: February 1 - 24
Via Zoom
$185.00

Registration Closed

Self-proclaimed genius, Harlan Bean, is ready to make history with his science-fiction radio masterpiece, Battle of the Planets. But when the broadcast is in the hands of an ambitious actress with her own vision for her character, several terrified last-minute replacements jumping in, a disgruntled sound engineer out for revenge, and a contest winning walk-on member of the public who insists on calling himself Furious Hamster, everything goes terribly wrong... in the most hysterical ways. This fast-paced piece of theatrical disaster will challenge actors to sharpen their character building techniques, as well as their comic timing and performance. Come prepare to work hard, and laugh harder as we create a comic delight for all audiences. This production is well suited to actors with some experience and a desire to take their performances to a more professional level – though no specific experience is required.

Rehearsals: March 1 - April 11
Via Zoom
$185.00

Registration Closed

When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Making fun of the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win or you die. Come prepared to take on the worst French accents, seriously disgruntled princesses and brainless princes... not to mention “Blood Packet Guy”. This production will combine a radio play performance with a slide show of all our actors in costume, posing as their characters in various scenes. The level of involvement of the photography for the slide show will be determined by best safety practices regarding current COVID restrictions, but be prepared to do some in-person, on-site photography. Have questions Please feel free to reach out to the director, Bree Beal, bree.beal@beatonline.org. No experience necessary!
