The Liquid Radio Players

The Liquid Radio Players is a comedy troupe that performs totally improvised shows in the style of old-time radio, complete with live sound effects and music. Audience members choose the genre (detective story, western, adventure, soap opera, horror, science fiction, or sitcom), provide a title for the story and character names for the actors, and name products they would like advertised during the show. Then, the troupe takes the stage in period costumes, blank “scripts” in hand and, standing in front of vintage microphones, plays out the requested show as if it were an actual radio broadcast from the 1940s. Two other players punctuate the story with live sound effects from a fully equipped onstage Foley table, while a keyboardist provides live music. The show also includes a rotating roster of variety acts that provide musical and comical tributes to that bygone era.
