Radio Drama – Youth Theatre Northwest


Directed by Mike Lion
Musical Direction by MJ Jurgensen

One old time classic, one modern piece brought to you live, via audio streaming, with live Foley sound effects for your listening enjoyment. 

First up is The New Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, "The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual" adapted by Edith Meiser from the story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle about the legendary detective and his loyal friend, Dr. Watson. These stories were a radio staple from 1939 to 1947 and starred Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes and Nigel Bruce as Watson. Together, they starred in 220 episodes, solving mysteries and keeping audiences on the edge of their seats.  

Next is Emma and The West with music by Joshua Vranas and words by Clare Bierman, an original radio musical. Emma and Kit are reading about the Wild West, but when the last page of their book is missing, they journey into the world of the book to get it back. Fueled by imagination and friendship, Emma and Kit turn a regular afternoon at home into the wildest adventure in the west in this musical adventure!

Our 2020 - 2021 School Season was conceived with current uncertainties around Covid-19 in mind. Things are going to be a little different, but we believe that this plan ensures we will be able to provide programming throughout the season. All productions can rehearse online if need be and the shows will be available via streaming.
