Come see me perform live radio drama!

Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
I can’t believe I haven’t posted about this before! In fact, I’ve sort of been observing radio silence here, just because I’ve been so busy. But next Wednesday through Saturday, the 29th through 1st, I will be performing in the Post Meridian Radio Players’ performance of Tomes of Terror III. Live radio drama is basically people standing up at microphones with scripts and performing radio-style audio stories, along with life sound effects and music. This particular event is three separate radio dramas, a Hallowe’en-themed episode of The Baby Snooks Show, “Reyndardine”, an original adaptation (by PMRP’s Renée Johnson) of a short story based on an old English ballad, and Poe’s “The Tell-Tale Heart”, as adapted for radio for the CBC’s Nightfall series.

I’m playing the narrator in “The Tell-Tale Heart”, and plumtreeblossom is doing foley (sound effects) for “The Tell-Tale Heart” and for the Baby Snooks episode. It’s tremendous fun for us, and it will almost certainly be tremendous fun for you, too. All shows are at 7:30; if you want to come see it, I strongly recommend you make a reservation at http://pmrp.org/, since we have lots of reservations already and some of the shows may be sold out. You can reserve tickets online and pay for them when you arrive for the show.

I highly recommend this, and not just because I’m in it.

OK, must go sleep now.

PS — And tomorrow night at midnight (Friday night) you can hear me and lediva, with plumtreeblossom doing a tiny bit of foley, doing a couple minutes from the show on WBZ’s The Jordan Rich Show on 1030 AM. There will also be a section from Baby Snooks, and our director(s? Not sure if the Baby Snooks director will be there) and sound designer/technical director will be interviewed. If you happen to be able to record that, I’d love a copy; I’m not sure whether the radio station will make it available for download.

OK, I'm an idiot. I waited until Halloween night to get a reservation. I filled out the form on line, but have no sense of when someone will get back to me and let me know if they are sold out for tonight, in which case I'll want to get in a form for tomorrow. Do you have any idea (1) if there are still tix available for tonight and/or (2) when to expect a call/email about it?

I know that as of last night, they had seven tickets left for tonight, and tomorrow was already sold out. I got mail from the house manager at about 10:57 this morning saying that the show was sold out and that “[t]he last two seats for tonight just got grabbed.” Since you posted this in the wee hours of this morning, I’m guessing you got in just under the wire! Do you want me to ask the house manager (plumtreeblossom’s housemate) to drop you a note, or have you heard from him yet?

That would be great, because I still have not heard anything.

Hi! Yes, he says you did get in. (He thought he sent you a confirmation; maybe the spam-blocker ate it or something.)

Yep - just checked the filtered message list and found it. Should have checked there first. Thanks for finding out for me, and we look forward to hearing you tonight!

Oh, and I’m so glad you’ll be able to see it tonight! If you have time, stick around afterwards and say hi. (Fine if you don’t have time, of course; it tends to take us a little while to get changed because the green room is so small and there are so many of us.)
