For immediate release
March 18, 2021 The World Radio Premiere of “Halfway There” broadcast from Prince Edward County
A new theatre club in The County entitled “A Theatre Club” has been working for months to bring this Norm Foster play to life. Despite challenging working conditions due to the pandemic the club has managed to safely pull together a team of local performers to produce this Foster comedy.
99.3 County FM is the first radio station in the world to air the production, episode 1 begins Sunday March 28th at 8:00 pm.
Listen as favourite local actors bring this play to life every Sunday from March 28 to April 18.
“Halfway There” tells the story of a big city jilted doctor who escapes to a small Maritime town where he encounters the wit and wisdom of 4 local ladies.
Phil Knox, Executive Producer, A Theatre Club: It is important for our group of writers, actors, directors, musicians and production people to continue working on ways to keep our creative spirit alive and continue to entertain people. This project with 99.3 County FM provides all the elements to do it in a safe environment for all. Live theatre is alive and well on 99.3 County FM.
Craig Mills, GM, 99.3 County FM: When Executive Producer Phil Knox presented the idea of bringing radio plays back to life our Production Director Pat Larkin and myself immediately embraced the idea. The actors in PEC have been starved by the pandemic of the chance to perform and we believe the public are hungry for live theatre. Phil and his team have given people a reason to grab their popcorn and cuddle up to the radio. This four-week series is the first of many that A Theatre Club will be doing. 99.3 County FM is grateful for the chance to deliver this exciting series to the people of Prince Edward County and beyond.
