Lost Ladies of Radio
Texas Radio Theater ventures back to radio's Golden Age to recreate vintage episodes from three classic radio shows, each one led by an intriguing female character:
"Our Gal Sunday"
"Candy Matson, YUkon-2-8029"
We're reaching back to perform these original "lost scripts", unheard since their original broadcasts over 50 years ago.
"Our Gal Sunday" was the soap opera that for over 20 years asked the question, "can a young orphan girl from the little mining town of Silver Creek, Colorado find happiness as the wife of a wealthy and titled Englishman?" The question is not answered in our episode from 1950, but plenty of other questions are raised about Marcia Crail, her boyfriend, and her daughter.
The "Easy Aces" were America's original comedy husband and wife team, with Jane Ace considered radio's mistress of misinformation even before Gracie Allen took to the airwaves. In this classic bit of comedy writing, "Jane Thinks Mink."
And finally, the rarest of the lost ladies of radio, the female detective "Candy Matson" who solved crimes with her gams as well as a gun. In this 1950 episode for which only the script survives, this lovely San Francisco gumshoe discovers that the clue to murder is connected to "A Black Cat."
Auditions will be held on Saturday March 4th. Performances on the weekend of March 17th
