Ballet West’s Dracula

October 27, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - October 28, 2023 @ 3:00 am

What if Dr. Watson was a woman and Sherlock Holmes wasn’t always right?
On the run from Moriarty, the keenest criminal mind they’ve ever faced, Holmes is unsure of his powers, and Watson is unsure of him.

This Halloween season, we perform RADIO HOUR in front of a “live studio audience” for the first time since 2014!

Cheryl Ann co-founded Plan-B in 1991. Her love of radio drama has been part of the company since RADIO MACBETH in 1996, followed by THE PBTC RADIO SHOW in 1998 and THE WAR OF THE WORLDS in 2002, each of which paved the way for RADIO HOUR.

In the early 2000s, Doug and Cheryl Ann discovered their shared love of classic radio drama.

In early 2005, Cheryl Ann, Doug, and Artistic Director Jerry Rapier met for fancy cocoa at the long-gone Cocoa Cafe to chat about the possibility of creating one live radio drama as one episode of RadioWest.

RADIO HOUR EPISODE 1: RADIO POE (which Cheryl Ann also adapted) aired that fall. We had no idea we’d still be collaborating 18 years later!

EPISODES 1-3, 6, and 10-16 were performed live in the RadioWest studio. EPISODES 4-5 and 7-9 were performed in front of a “live studio audience.” The goal was to return to the latter format in 2020, but, well …

So here were are, 18 years and one pandemic break later, sharing episode 17 with you as our “live studio audience”!
