Welcome back! If you've been here for the three previous weeks, you know that we're re-releasing our four 2018 "Sonic Summerstock Playhouse" festival offerings. We hope you enjoyed last week's presentation "ESCAPE: THE ADAPTIVE ULTIMATE". And now it's time to enjoy our fourth and final one, an episode of the "Arch Oboler's Plays" series, entitled "Rocket From Manhattan". Originally broadcast on September 20, 1945, I believe on NBC. 

The play and the point of view was written and cast all-male. I decided to go against type and cast every single role with a woman. I changed the genders in the dialog as well, for the most part (except when they spoke of "mankind"; I left that alone). I believe it works very well this way, and further, that Mr. Oboler would approve. 

CAST:

Announcer 1: Ele Matelan

Announcer 2: Alisha Strand-Mueller

MAJOR RUSSELL: Geri Elliff

DOCTOR CHAMBERLAIN: Lori Bryant

LIEUTENANT REYNOLDS: Victoria Fancki

Produced & directed by Pete Lutz

You may know already that the Narada Radio Co. has participated in Jack Ward's annual "Sonic Summerstock Playhouse" festival since 2015, and has produced at least one Old-Time Radio remake per year in support of same. This year, however, we were quite prolific, creating a total of four remakes (count 'em! FOUR!) for this very worthy event. We hope you enjoyed last week's entry, THE ADVENTURES OF NERO WOLFE: 'STAMPED FOR MURDER', and hope you'll come back over the next two Sundays to hear the last two. These final three, it's been explained, were already released during the summer of '18; but if you're not a Sonic Society subscriber, you might have missed 'em, so here's our next entry: NBC BEST PLAYS: "ARSENIC AND OLD LACE"!

Our cast of this radio remake is the same cast used for the stage production of Arsenic and Old Lace, which I directed in 2017 at Harbor Playhouse, Corpus Christi, Texas. We recorded it on that very stage, too! Here are our players:

ABBY BREWSTER - Michele Barnett

THE REV. DR. HARPER - Michael Pierce

TEDDY BREWSTER - Chuck Wilson

OFFICER BROPHY - Leo Longoria

OFFICER KLEIN - Richard Robinson

MARTHA BREWSTER - Aileen Corpos

MORTIMER BREWSTER - Peter M. Howard
