A blessed Christmas to you all!
A few days later I was asked to audition for the same project! Woo hoo!
I was cast as a Scrooge-like character in this new radio show, adapted by Molly Mayo and Lamplighter president, Mark Hamby, from Bells Across the Snow by Fannie Eden.
For the radio show, we performed it the way they did back in the '30s. We were dressed in period costumes and had minimal blocking around four mics. Foley artists created the sounds before the audience's eyes!
As we got closer to doing the radio show as a live production, the decision was made to record it as an audio drama in the sound booth to go out to radio stations around the world! This meant we skipped a rehearsal for the live version and spent time in the booth to get a studio quality sound. It was a very tight turn-around for sound designer Allen Hurley (Adventures in Audio and other Lamplighter Theatre projects) and composer John Campbell (Adventures in Audio and other Lamplighter Theatre projects).
They finished Monday, and more than 400 radio stations have signed up to air it so far!
The audio drama is available for free for now. It was supposed to turn to the paid model after December 31, but as of January 5, it's still free at www.UnlikelyWiseMan.com.
