RADIOTHEATRE is NOT an old time radio show…rather; it relies on the combination of Story Telling, great voices, music and award-winning sound design…as well as, the individual imaginations of its audiences. These primary ingredients are used to provide a memorable, live, theatrical experience. Of course, we do like to add some 21st Century touches…such as cinematic scripts, original orchestral sound tracks that you won't hear anywhere else, a plethora of aural effects and, sometimes, a few visuals, too…creating a unique live production with non-traditional, modern, innovative stage presentation!
