SPOKANE, Wash. – Gonzaga University theatre and dance will present “The Golden Age of Radio,” reader’s theatre performances of classic radio with 7:30 p.m. performances Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 1 in the Magnuson Theatre. The program features eight students bringing radio shows to life – from “The Adventures of Superman” to “The Adventures of Ellery Queen.”

Before television, people found entertainment through the simple sounds of radio. “The Golden Age of Radio” recaptures that experience and encourages audiences to use their imagination just as the original listeners did some 70 years ago.  Senior Connor Brenes, who directs the programs, said he is proud to present the production as a form of education.

“I want to share something with people that they have probably never been exposed to before and may never be exposed to again,” Brenes said. “It is different from the norm that people will see on any stage.”

Tickets are issued at the door for a suggested donation of $2. The Magnuson Theatre is located at the east end of College Hall. For more information about the upcoming season, visit www.gonzaga.edu/theatrearts.
