The Maltese Falcon - Show #1

Our first of two weekend shows... Curtain at 8:00pm.

We present our signature recreation of the February 1943 Lux Radio Theatre's broadcast of: "The Maltese Falcon". The classic tale of mystery, romance and intrigue is set in the bustling city of San Francisco. Sam Spade is a fast-talking and smart private dick in the big city. When his agency suffers an unexpected tragedy, he takes on a case that involves three eccentric criminals, a gorgeous liar and a harrowing quest for a priceless statuette.

Our performance this evening will be held at the gorgeous, outdoor S. Mark Taper Foundation Amphitheatre at the beloved Tree People organization on Mulholland Drive. 
Come join us for  a night of unforgettable radio theatre under the stars! Come early to have a picnic with friends and family.

The War of the Worlds

The War of the Worlds

The third of our five re-enactments of the history-making broadcast: "The War of the Worlds". Originally performed by Orson Welles and his Mercury Radio Theatre the night before Halloween in 1938, the broadcast created such a stir that people actually thought there was a Martian invasion underway in Grover's Mill, New Jersey.

Our show will feature a dramatic, faithful rendition of the original broadcast as well as a short, opening piece about the tumultuous life of Orson Welles. 

Our special guest star will be: Mark McKinney, from the sketch comedy troupe, "The Kids in the Hall"!

Running time is approximately 90min with no intermission, to best allow for a proper Martian Invasion.

For the adults: Sing-a-long "Wizard of Oz"

The 1950 broadcast of Lux Radio's "The Wizard of Oz" was a one-hour version of the hugely popular movie. Judy Garland was invited back to reprise her role as Dorothy. We'll re-create the entire radio broadcast -- even the commercials -- live on stage, and invite all of you to sing along with Dorothy, The Scarecrow, The Tin Man & The Cowardly Lion! Lyric sheets will be provided at the door. 

Our evening performance is geared for for more mature audiences although children over the age of 13 are still invited. Some suggestive language or situations may occur.
