Episode 148 – A Terror and A Twisted Tale

auditions2And another lovely yet chilly evening of audio drama to you, dear listeners! Tonight we have some stories from new and old friends on our show, but before we kick things off we have an audition announcement.

Now that our winners for our scriptwriting competition have been selected, it’s time to pick a cast to bring these stories to life!  If you live in the Columbus, OH area and are interested in working out your voice acting chops, we will be holding auditions alongside Actors’ Theatre of Columbus on February 21-22, down at the German Village Meeting Haus on S.3rd Street, from 10am to 5pm.  Come in, fill out an audition form and try out for some parts!  Monologues are optional for MAT auditions; we will have lines for you to read during your session. For more information, check out our Facebook page or the Actors’ Theatre website at for audition forms, character lists and story summaries.  NOTE: You do NOT need to sign up for a time slot to come in for an audition!  Just let the Check-In desk know that you are there for MAT auditions ONLY, and we’ll get you sorted!

If you can’t make our auditions, you can also record a monologue or character lines on your computer and send them to us by email. Full email submission details will be posted on the MAT website by Sunday, February 22nd. Auditions will be accepted until Friday, March 6th, at 11pm CST. Submissions from within the Columbus, Ohio area are preferred, as we will hold group rehearsals with cast members before recording.

rtp-prx_mediumATropicalHorror700As for tonight, our first story of the night is a nautical tale of terror from 19 Nocturne Boulevard, entitled “A Tropical Horror“. After that, we’re visited by the Radio Theatre Project and one of their Grampa Ed’s twisted fairy tales: “A Bride for Prince Charming“. Enjoy tonight’s listening, and we hope to see you this weekend!
