Safety is Our First Concern

Staged radio plays are performed straight out, into microphones, and do not regularly involve actors conversing face-to-face with each other. All shows will be produced with in-person rehearsals using appropriate PPE. All shows will be performed with an adherence to social distancing of actors (a minimum of 6’ away from each other) and remote audiences. Actors will not share microphones, costumes, or props during a taping session. Performances will be filmed in a closed studio environment without live audiences.

How to Watch the Staged Radio Drama

The staged radio plays will be filmed, edited, then uploaded to a video streaming service like YouTube, for example.  When you 'buy' a free ticket, please verify your email address before completing the 'sale'.  When the video is uploaded and ready for viewing, you will be sent a link to the email address associated with the ticket.
