This episode title seems so innocent, doesn’t it? When in fact, this set of holiday stories revolves around the theme of the unexpected – some good and others not so much. What may come as a surprise to you right at the start is the premiere of our newest MAT Feature! We’ve been in high-gear working on getting this story mixed and finished for the holiday season. “The Angel of Casimir” is written by Jim McDoniel, one of our winners from our last MAT Scriptwriting Competition (which has come around again – go check it out here). McDoniel takes us to December 1914, spinning aRead More →
Happy Holidays, audio drama listeners! That nip in the air means that Christmas is around the corner – that time of year where radio stations across the country break out their old-school or newly-produced renditions of A Christmas Carol, The Night Before Christmas, or other such tuck. But we at Midnight Audio Theatre like to mix things up a bit, looking for new stories still related to the holiday season. We have two such tales this show, as we welcome back friends and past-featured groups Campfire Radio Theater and The Truth Podcast.We start with a country’s desire for new leadership and the promise of making everyRead More →
HAPPY 2016, EVERYONE! Well, we’re back again! Christmas has come and gone, but the holidays are still here, including New Year’s Day celebrations. For the first time we’re joining in on the fun -by pulling together a New Year’s Day episode for your listening enjoyment. It’s a little bit of everything, as we start with our final MAT Feature of 2015: a sci-fi adventure entitled “Tara Flame On Patrol”, by Evan Waters. “Tara Flame” was a blast to produce, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have! Blasting off from that, we follow it up with another gem from The Truth Podcast entitled “Happy New Year“;Read More →
Happy Holidays, everyone! November is gone, and now it’s time to shower you with many a winter-wonderland-type tale! This month we’re breaking out the Christmas stories, and every year we try to find a collection of unique and lesser-known tales, instead of the traditional “Carol”. Tonight is certainly high on that unique list, with pieces from The Truth Podcast and 19 Nocturne Boulevard. We start with “Naughty or Nice“, which shows us a glimpse of the infrastructure behind Santa’s corporate organization. After that is a “Trilogy for Xmas“, with stories from the 1912 anthology “A Christmas Garland”, adapted for audio drama – “Scruts” by Arnold Bennett, “PCRead More →
Sad but true, folks – tonight is our last show of HEAR Now Festival features from way back in June. But what great shows to end on! This episode, we kick things off with two stories from The Truth Podcast, produced by Jonathan Mitchell. We had one or two selections on our show from “The Truth” years ago, and to hear the podcast at the HEAR Now Festival was really exciting. The two stories featured at the festival were “Voyager Found” and “Sylvia’s Blood“. Both of them won recognitions at the Mark Time Awards, including Science Fiction Finalist, the Gold Award for Horror, and Best EnsembleRead More →
