Radio show lights up Rudolph’s tale
Rudolph’s red nose is lighting up an evening of humour and musical theatre.
Radio After Dark presents Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer at Fibber Magees Sunday (Dec. 9) at 7 p.m. It’s a live theatrical performance.
“It’s as if vaudeville meets old time radio,” said Bil Miner, a founder of Radio After Dark and actor.
The production is based on the holiday musical comedy but is presented in the classic style of radio drama. The actors create the sound effects onstage.
“It allows us to be in the moment as a stage performer,” said Miner. “I love being present and connected to the audience.”
The show can either be listened to or watched as a play.
“The audience can even close their eyes as some of the old timers do. It’s like having the radio on and listening to an old program,” said Miner, adding people watching can experience the humour.
Sunday’s performance is at Fibber Magees, located at 321 Selby St., and Dec. 11-12 the group performs at the Gabriola Golf and Country Club, 7 p.m. Tickets are $15. Tickets for the Nanaimo show are available at the pub or by calling 250-591-0650.
