Description: ATC and PECT are looking for a diverse cast of actors/singers to recreate a radio play live on stage at the Regent. A two-act comedy.
It’s 1945 and World War II is winding down. CPEC County Radio and The Radio Suspense Theatre Ensemble celebrates the return of Skippy Sawyer as a war hero. A romance between Skippy and Judy, the new girl, begins to develop. In the meantime, a strange woman in a cowboy hat and a raincoat is looking for the GM, Allen Burns. Allen goes missing that the company has a mystery of its own as they present two new mystery-thrillers.
Murder in Focus (MIF) tells the story of a young newlywed who is caught up in a bizarre set of circumstances when she is confronted by her old boyfriend and the news that the infamous “Camera Casanova” has escaped from prison. Are the similarities between the escaped criminal and her new husband too close for comfort?
The second mystery thriller of the evening follows a famous actor who abandons his Broadway role as a serial killer in The Manhattan Strangler (TMS) to assume the role for real.
