The past several years for Halloween, Seattle Radio Theatre (SRT) has presented a LIVE radio drama at Town Hall in Seattle, also broadcast live on KIRO Radio 97.3FM. Tickets to the live show were typically $15, and of course listening to the radio drama is free. However, during 2017, Town Hall is closed for renovation.
Therefore, SRT will present a live radio drama on the Triple Door stage in downtown Seattle. This year’s show features the blood-curdling action of “Dracula,” as originally produced by Orson Welles in 1938, plus a special opening feature presentation of a spooky radio drama short.
Unfortunately, tickets are $40-$50, plus drinks and/or dinner. So this is way above our “cheap” standard of $15 or less. In any case, should you wish to spring for it, the show begins at 8:00 PM and the venue is All Ages. Doors open and dinner service begins 90 minutes prior to show time.
Or, listen for free from the comfort of your living room.
Friday The 13th of October, you can experience the 1938 version of “DRACULA” by tuning in to LIVE RADIO on KIRO Radio News 97.3 FM — one of the only places in the world presenting LIVE RADIO DRAMA. The radio show will feature KIRO Radio SRT regulars Dave Ross, Colleen O’Brien, Ursula Reutin, Dan Restione, Candy Harper and other KIRO Radio and media personalities, plus Jim Dever from KING TV, Bill Wixey from KCPQ, Tracey Conway, John Maynard, and other surprises.
As luck would have it, we found a YouTube recording of the 2010 production, which you can access below.
