Mayhem of radio
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.
