The Post-Meridian Radio Players are presenting their live “Spring Sci-Fi Spectacular” show May 11th and 12th at the Urban Promise Church of Somerville in Somerville, MA. Two stories will be performed:
RED SHIFT: INTERPLANETARY DO-GOODER
Writer/director Rob Noyes’ vision of the World of Tomorrow. Not the bleak, post-nuclear wasteland or industrial urban dystopia of 1980s science-fiction, but the clean, modernist utopia imagined by the 1939 World’s Fair: a future which, through industry and hard work, promised to be streamlined, prosperous and bright; and beyond it lay the Cosmos, just waiting for exploration and colonization. Red Shift and Lumpy lived in just this kind of Universe, and Dr. Alberts and Penny Parker were keen to travel there. It turned out, however, to be just slightly off-center from what they were expecting.
THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL
From the long-running Lux Radio Theater comes this adaptation of the classic 1951 science-fiction film. Originally airing on January 4th, 1954, this production featured Michael Rennie reprising his performance of Klaatu. Lux Radio Theater was famous for producing radio adaptations of major motion pictures, often with the original lead actors.
This adaptation of Edmund H. North’s original film script was written by Milton Geiger. The film script itself was based on the Harry Bates short story “Farewell to the Master”.
The performance dates are:
Friday, May 11th, at 8:00pm
Saturday, May 12th, at 2:00pm
Saturday, May 12th, at 8:00pm
