The Petaluma Radio Players are back in front of a live audience, one year after their appearance at the DeCarli Trolley Barn Theater. This time the Players will be performing at the Hotel Petaluma, December 8 and 9. Buy your tickets soon. – RR
When THE PETALUMA RADIO PLAYERS stepped out on stage last fall with their debut performance of ‘THE SHADOW,’ before two nights of packed houses, Sonoma County audiences went wild. (The live Foley work alone captivated theatre goers and Bay Area press alike.)
Now P.R.P. is back with FOUR RADIO PLAYS in an all new — but quite vintage — venue: The ‘Goldman Ballroom’ of the beautifully remodeled ‘HOTEL PETALUMA,’
205 Kentucky Street (also 106 Washington Street)
ALL FOUR PLAYS WILL BE RECORDED FOR REBROADCAST ON PETALUMA’S NEW RADIO STATION: KPCA-FM (103.3)
On THURSDAY, DEC. 8th and FRIDAY, DEC. 9th at 8:00 PM, fans of live radio theatre are treated to four back-to-back radio plays including:
THE NOIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS (approx. 15 minutes)
Sometimes naughty is nice when the classic Christmas tale is punctuated by the rhythm of Tommy guns and retold through the longing eyes of a mob boss. Written by P.R.P.’s own Steven Lubliner.
TRIFLES (approximately 30 minutes)
When a Nebraska farmer is found dead in his bedroom , and the Sheriff and D.A. show up to investigate, their particularly male point of view might be blinding them to clues that are right before the womenfolks eyes. Written by early 20th century breakthrough playwright and novelist, Susan Glaspell.
THE RAILROAD DETECTIVES (approximately 15 minutes)
The morning paper broke the story: First National Bank was hit by a robber wearing a black Homburg hat and concealing a pistol. Now, to the shock of bank owner, Frank Baxter, and his socialite wife, Gloria, a young man wearing the same hat has boarded their train and entered their car. What is a desperate, elite couple to do? What else? Written by new playwright, Kate Crockett Juliana.
PLAYING WITH KNIVES (approximately 11 minutes)
If you’re going to mug this couple in an alley, be sure to bring some Excedrin. They’re not black belts in karate, but they will chop you down to size with their relentless banter. Written by playwright and childrens book author, Natasha Yim.
