THE PETALUMA RADIO PLAYERS

THE PETALUMA RADIO PLAYERS

In less than four years on the San Francisco Bay Area theatre circuit, after breathing new life into radio classics like 'The Shadow' in 2015, followed by the staging of 'Slay Bells Ring (Are you listening?),' four comedic original one-acts which played to sold out houses at the Hotel Petaluma in 2016, the Petaluma Radio Players, the North Bay's most eclectic and energized radio theatre company, are continuing to churn out a cornucopia of radio plays including vintage dramas like 'One Way Passage' (1932) and 'Trifles' (1916), and modern fare like the tear-jerking 'The Next Move' and in-stitches comedic noir parody, 'Story: A Detective Story.' We produce two radio plays per month. Join our podcast. Join our mailing list: info@petalumaradioplayers.com. Prepare to giggle and cry. ... Show More

CHEKHOV'S REVENGE by Roy Proctor. Though Anton Chekhov is widely revered as the father of modern drama here in the West, did you know that in his native Russia, he is better known for the hundreds of short stories, novellas and sketches he authored during his medical school days until he died of tuberculosis in the early 20th century at the age of 44? Well, the comic timing and irony in the next two scenes is likely to kill you, to... Read more
