Forge Theatre Presents: THE 1940’S RADIO HOUR

by Patricia Bradford

Forge Theatre in Phoenixville is proud to present a Greg Morton directed holiday musical – THE 1940’S RADIO HOUR, a Play with Music by Walton Jones, special arrangement by Samuel French.

Starting January 5th, 2018 the show will run for three weekends – on Friday and Saturday evenings, curtain will go up at 8 pm, Sundays at 2 pm. Prepare for a rousing two hours of back’n’forth, Abbott & Costello-like comedic shenanigans in a radio station mixed with everyone’s favorite songs of the holidays in the 1940s. The play portrays the final holiday broadcast of the Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade on the New York radio station WOV in December 1942 including old-time sound effects. The variety of characters, including the cantankerous stage manager and the bumbling drunk, will tug at your heartstrings as they prepare for their Christmas broadcast to the soldiers overseas during WWII. You will leave with a heart filled with joy and thankfulness as everyone prepares not only for the broadcast but their goodbye to a brave friend.
