“Old Time Radio – Live On Stage!” is returning to Whidbey. The sounds of 1946 will come back to life on two Saturdays — May 21 in Langley and May 28 in Oak Harbor — when KWPA, Whidbey Public Radio presents the second annual installment of its popular fundraising performances.
Tickets are available on- line at www.kwparadio.org and at the South Whidbey Commons Coffeehouse Bookstore and Moonraker Bookstore in Langley, BookBay in Freeland, Local Grown, Bayleaf and Lavender Wind Farm in Coupeville, and at Wind and Tide Books and Bayleaf in Oak Harbor.
The show, directed by Elizabeth Herbert, will have two performances only at 7 p.m. May 21 at South Whidbey High School and at 7 p.m. May 28 at Oak Harbor High School.
“This year’s show will give people a wonderful feeling for what it was like to gather around the family radio on a typical day in 1946,” said Harry Anderson, president of KWPA’s board of directors.
“A Day on the Radio in 1946” will feature actors recreating original scripts of classic radio programs of the 1940s.
