Since its inception, Lakes Area Theatre (LAT) has presented listeners with mysteries, dramas, horror, comedies and detective stories.
In the next few weeks LAT will add a western, some science fiction and romance to its radio show fare.
The western from the old-time radio series Frontier Gentleman, The Powder River Kid, will be aired in February. The Valentine's weekend offering will be a romance.
But this Friday night at LAT, audience members will be treated to a science fiction story.
Drummer's Dome will be presented on Friday, January 28 at 7 p.m.
Drummer Crowley is finally able to build the house he always dreamed of – a geodesic dome in the woods. That's because the three albums his band, Bent Sunshine, made back in the 1960s have finally been released.
So he's enlisted his son and daughter-in-law to help, and hired a carpenter. But now they are finding that the inside of the dome seems to behave strangely. Drummer is feeling better than he has in years, and that carpenter, well, she's starting to look awfully cute.
While inside the dome the laws of physics are defied and all things become possible, including a May-December romance.
Jerry Stearns and Brian Price of the Great Northern Audio Theatre in Minneapolis wrote the show. On stage will be Kevin Lee, Leila Preston, Christy Meier and Bruce Wegner. Karen Gladen will provide music, Chuck Wencl is on the trapset, and director Tim Ray has designed the sound effects. This show is sponsored by The Misfits of Magic.
Sunday's show on KXRA 1490 AM at 12:30 p.m. features Joe Korkowski reprising the character Chester Riley from The Life of Riley series.
In this show, Riley gets in hot water over lawnmowers and has the neighborhood kids rebelling. Rounding out the cast of The Lawnmower are Sue Korkowski, Daniel Roers, Kip Sundlee, Courtney Bitzan and Caroline Roers. Music is by Irma Brockberg and sound effects are by Kip Sundlee. The play was directed by Mike Roers and is sponsored by Bitzan-Ohren Masonry.
