Old Time Radio Show
HOLIDAY | STAGE READING | LIVE RADIO

Directed by Dani Schafer-Cloke and Foley Director James Wallace

This moving holiday show recreates the experience of attending a recording of a 1940s radio show broadcast on Christmas Eve during World War II. Using period songs and stories inspired by actual veterans, World War II Radio Christmas transports the audience to another time, brought to you by such generous sponsors as Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste. An inspiring look at strength in the face of hardship, this play is a reminder of the importance of coming together for the holidays.

 

What is an Old Time Radio Show?

Before TV took over, radio was one of the world’s main sources of entertainment. Apart from news, commercials, and music, it also broadcast shows: dramas, mysteries, comedies, and more. Families in the 1920s through to the 1960s gathered around to listen to what we now call old-time radio shows. Stories were brought to life live on the radio with voice actors and foley artists.
