From Palm Canyon Theatre:

Fusing Eastern and Western culture with a 1940’s big band twist, Hot Mikado swings into Palm Springs with a side-splitting story. The tale features Ko-Ko, the reluctant Lord High Executioner, Nanki-Poo, a disguised prince fleeing his arranged marriage, and Yum-Yum, a woman they both love. The hilarious complications that ensue turn this satire into a hot American mix of jazz, gospel, and vaudeville.

IDS 443 IDS 2015 Summer Rep 2 Romance “The Valiant”

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on June 29th, 2015

This is the second installment of IDS’s Summer Rep program.  This month’s program comes from the old time radio series, Romance.  The episode is entitled The Valiant.  Enjoy!!

From Generic Radio Workshop:

You may be surprised to discover that this half-hour CBS radio series ran from 1943 all the way until 1957. It seems to have been a catchall title that accommodated a variety of different formats and hosts, as long as the subject was love. There were at least 20 changes in the time and day it was aired during the length of its run, and eventually hundreds of episodes were aired.

IDS 438 IDS 2015 Summer Rep 1 Quiet Please “Below Fifth Avenue”

Posted in Episodes, Plays on the IntraWebs on May 25th, 2015

With Memorial Day, Summer is officially ushered in and that means a return of IDS’s popular Summer Rep Series.  We bring back old time radio scripts and give them new life.  So, for each month of the summer one episode per month will be dedicated to this type of programming.  Enjoy!!

First up, an episode of the radio series, Quiet Please, entitled Below Fifth Avenue.

From Generic Radio Workshop:

Quiet, Please is one of those brilliant shows that was ideal for radio… horror stories that demand to be listened to late at night, in the dark. Often very simple — sometimes only two voices — the shows build to their horrifying climaxes bit by bit. All the episodes are believed to be in the public domain.

Quiet, Please was first broadcast by on June 8, 1947 by the Mutual Broadcasting System, and its last episode ran on June 25, 1949, by ABC. A total of 106 shows were broadcast, with few repeats. The shows were written by the show’s creator Wyllis Cooper, and Ernest Chappell was the everyman lead actor who didn’t play a continuing character but appeared in every episode.
