About this event

Note: If you'd rather attend the show in person, check out the in-person version of the event instead.

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society returns for the second in a four-part summer series, featuring two great stories about creatures that crawl and squirm!

“Leiningen Versus The Ants” from Escape (1949) – An arrogant land owner risks everything to save his farmstead from an oncoming army of killer ants!

“Revolt of the Worms” from Lights Out (1942) - A scientist’s dream to create the perfect rose turns into a nightmare of monstrous proportions!

Each of these plays are lovingly recreated in the style of a classic radio broadcast, including commercials, live music and sound effects. Featuring local theatrical favorites: Eric Webster (Shade's Brigade), Shanan Custer (2 Sugars, Room for Cream), Joshua English Scrimshaw (Comedy Suitcase), and Tim Uren (Ghoulish Delights).

Doors open at 6:30 PM and we invite you to come early to enjoy a signature cocktail. Then hang around after the show for a Q&A with the cast!

PREVIOUS PRAISE FOR THE MYSTERIOUS OLD RADIO LISTENING SOCIETY:

“An artisanal, old-school way of making entertainment... The fun is in watching these fine actors work almost exclusively with their voices … and to see them create a sepia-toned world with handmade sound effects.” -​DOMINIC P. PAPATOLA - Pioneer Press

“The cast… are all extremely talented and hilarious, taking on multiple voices and characters. If you have recently become interested in radio or audio drama through podcasts, why not see a recreation of how radio drama was at the beginning with The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society.” -Twin Cities Stages

ABOUT THE MORLS:

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society performed their first staged old-time radio recreation in 2017 at the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater in Minneapolis. Since then, they have appeared at the Minnesota Fringe Festival, Daleko Arts in New Prague, and the Wabasha Street Caves in Saint Paul. Their recreations were also featured monthly from 2018 to 2019 at the James J. Hill Center and from 2020 to May of this year at Park Square Theatre in Saint Paul.

ABOUT THE PODCAST:

The Society’s live performances are inspired by the podcast of the same name. The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society Podcast revisits the great crime, horror and suspense shows from the golden age of radio, including tales from Suspense, Lights Out, Quiet Please, The Shadow, and more. Each episode features a classic, or maybe-not-so classic story from the mysterious old-time radio vault, complete with historical notes and nerdy trivia. At the end of each podcast, your hosts, Tim, Joshua and Eric discuss the merits of the story and decide whether or not it stands the test of time.
