Fake Radio opens its 2021 season of shows with a recreation of Lux Radio Theatre’s 1954 Broadcast of: ”The Day the Earth Stood Still”

Our special guest star is Phil Proctor, cast member from the world-famous “Firesign Theater” comedy troupe!!

If you don’t think Science Fiction can be hysterically funny, then welcome to the world of Fake Radio’s comedic recreations of old-time radio classics!

An alien named Klaatu lands his spacecraft on Earth just after the end of World War II. He brings an important message to the planet that he wishes to tell the representatives of all nations. However, communication turns out to be difficult due to Cold War fears and Klaatu is forced to try an alternative approach. The result shocks the entire planet but eventually leads to Klaatu announcing his message to the planet.

Featuring top talent from Portland and Los Angeles, Fake Radio re-enacts historic radio shows the old-fashioned way: dressed in period clothing and standing with scripts in hand in front of old microphones. Sound and music effects will make you feel like you’re watching a live radio show taping from the 1940s. We’ll even re-create the old commercials! Just be ready for the cast to occasionally go off-script!

Doors at 7pm, Curtain at 8pm
