May­hem of ra­dio

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

The golden age of ra­dio will re­turn at the Yar­ragon Pub­lic Hall on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 with a com­edy drama play star­ring Michael Veitch.

Tune in as Veitch, to­gether with Si­mon Oats, trans­port the au­di­ence back to the days when ra­dio was king with “Mys­tery in the Air”.

It’s may­hem as 1947’s most pop­u­lar weekly ra­dio drama se­rial “Mys­tery in the Air” is about to go live to air.

The star of the show is beloved ra­dio vet­eran Clin­ton Webb, played by Veitch. How­ever, change is afoot.

Clin­ton has been made to share the mi­cro­phone with dash­ing fighter pi­lot ace Ru­pert Billing­ton-Smythe. Sure, he may be ta­lented, hand­some and a con­sid­er­ably younger rat­ingswin­ner, but Clin­ton’s had it with the up­start’s lack of pro­fes­sion­al­ism!

And this week’s plays are two ab­so­lute cork­ers: a crack­ing hor­ror wax mu­seum story and the thrilling space ad­ven­tures of Flash Gor­don, set in that unimag­in­ably far-off year of 1986.

With 20 voices and a pile of live-to-air sound ef­fects all per­formed by just two fraz­zled ac­tors, things are set to come to a head.

“Mys­tery in the Air” will be at the Yar­ragon Pub­lic Hall on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 14 at 7.30pm.

Tick­ets are $32 for adults, $28 for con­ces­sion, $25 for mem­bers and groups, and $20 for un­der 18s.

A bus ser­vice is avail­able, with book­ings nec­es­sary.

For book­ings or fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the West Gipp­s­land Arts Cen­tre box-of­fice on 5624 2456 or visit wgac.org.au.

Michael Veitch and Si­mon Oats will star in ra­dio drama com­edy of­fer­ing “Mys­tery in the Air” at the Yar­ragon Pub­lic Hall.
