Staff Reports • Updated Sep 29, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Encore Theatre Co. invites the community to spend some time listening to the radio. 

Encore will present “A Trio of Radio Comedies” on Oct. 6-7 at 7:30 p.m. and Oct. 8 at 2:30 p.m. at the Mt. Juliet theatre.

The show will feature three of America’s most popular radio episodes of Burns and Allen, Fibber McGee and Molly, along with a fall episode of Ozzie and Harriet. Audiences should expect to laugh at the quick wit and classic comedy provided by the wonderful duos of a great generation of radio and television. 

“Encore’s radio series have been dramas or musicals until we decided to explore the half-hour radio shows,” said director Don Breedwell. “We all need a chance to laugh, so we added the comedies of the old-time radio era to provide everyone with comedy from some of the greatest comedians.”

Breedwell said the episodes are cast by actors of all ages with wonderful voice characteristics. There will be live sound effects, and the soundtracks are as close to the originals as possible.

Tickets will be $10 each and payable by cash only at the door. Reservations may be made by calling 615-598-8950, but no online sales will be available for the addition to Encore’s 2017 season.

Encore Theatre Co. at 6978 Lebanon Road in Mt. Juliet is a nonprofit community theater founded to stimulate, promote, teach and develop interest in the dramatic arts and to bring all aspects of the dramatic arts to Wilson County and surrounding communities.
