PMRP’s Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular 
30th-Mar-2013 12:24 am
People: Hamlet, People: Sarah Bernhardt as Hamlet
I can’t believe I haven’t hawked this before now, but plumtreeblossom and I are both involved in PMRP’s Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular² live-radio-drama event. plumtreeblossom is reprising her rôle as Billy in “Red Shift: Crisis of the Cuddlykins”, a spoof of Flash Gordon- or Buck Rogers-style serials, and I’ve been directing (in my directorial début!) audioboy’s radio adaptation of the classic 1954 movie Them!. Shows are April 5, 6 (matinée and evening show), 11, 12, and 13th in Davis Square, and a special matinée April 21st at the MIT museum. More details are on the PMRP site. My cast is awesome (and so is plumtreeblossom’s, of course; it has her in it!) and it should be a tremendously fun time.

(For the two or three of you who haven’t read me and others talk about PMRP, the concept is that we present a radio drama as if broadcast over the air in the Golden Age of Radio, but on stage in front of a live audience. Most of our shows — this one definitely included — have live Foley sound effects, and we’ve got some awesome ones. Come see us!)

Why don't you record it and make those available? Because I'd love to have something to listen to on my way to work. *hint-hint!*

That is definitely part of the project of PMRP; lots of our previous shows are available (I think mostly from CDBaby), and I’m sure the plan is to make this one available, too. The amount of postproduction required to get a clean recording usually means it’s quite a while after a live performance before a CD/download is available, though — a year is not uncommon.

The recordings page has some links to audio you can download for free; I’d particularly recommend “Carmilla” to start with.

There are also some purely studio productions which you can find on the site.

I know we have a bunch of things on CDBaby, including some stuff I’ve een in, but I can’t find them on the site. (That is, of course, a major bug!) I dug in my email and found it’s at http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/PostMeridianRadioPlayers; plumtreeblossom and I were in “The Crasher”.

Also, I would pay.

That’s definitely also part of the project of PMRP. :-) Audio equipment and rental performance space doesn’t grow on trees!
