In November 20, 2015, a host of talented Sitkans with the GSAC Sitka Community Theater put on a production of four live radio dramas at the Sitka Performing Arts Center.
Included in the production are two original plays by Zachary Desmond, “Milktown 1999,” and Rebecca Poulson “A Fairy Tale,” a re-telling of the classic “Pride and Prejudice,” directed by Stefanie Ask, and a romantic comedy with a twist, “For Business Reasons,” directed by Shira Kahan. Sound effects were designed by Marybeth Palof, Dan Palof, Jessica Menary, and Angelo Cannizzaro. So, pull up a chair, a cup of hot cocoa, and tune in to something other than Netflix on a cold December night.
A recording of this performance will air on December 15, 2015 – at 7PM on KCAW Sitka. Tune 104.7 FM or 90.1 FM, or stream live here.
