Seattle Lutheran’s fall drama production will be an Evening of 1940’s Radio Mystery!
We will turn back the clock to the time when families gathered around their radios in the evening to hear tales of adventure, mystery and suspense. Our “KSLH FM” studio will perform two stories for the enjoyment of our listeners and our “live studio audience”, complete with live sound effects! First up is Adventures of the Thin Man: The Case of the Goofy Groom, starring married detectives Nick and Nora Charles on the case to discover who is trying to murder their good friend and his new wife. This story, full of jealousy, gangsters, and witty repartee, was actually broadcast on the radio in 1946. The evening will conclude with The 39 Steps: A Live Radio Play by Joe Landry, which is a radio adaptation of the classic film by Alfred Hitchcock. Will Richard Hannay be able to prove he is innocent of murder while bringing down a dangerous spy ring? Find out at our Evening of 1940’s Radio Mystery!

The 39 Steps: A Live Radio Play is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com).
Theater is a unique form of artistic expression requiring contributions from many different disciplines in order to create a polished product. Being part of an activity requiring this type of collaboration teaches responsibility and the importance of teamwork while allowing students to enhance their skills. At Seattle Lutheran, we feel strongly that all students, regardless of experience level, should have the opportunity to be a part of the production. It’s here where students can take part in the enriching world of theater.
In addition to an elective drama class, Seattle Lutheran offers an after-school drama club that produces two full-length productions each year – November and April. Students are involved in all aspects of producing the shows including, but not limited to, acting, stage management, set construction, scenic painting, props, costume design, and construction and lighting. Actors are given parts through an audition process; all levels of experience are welcome and appreciated. Productions in the last five years have included Shakespearean comedies, murder mysteries, and the classic Neil Simon comedy, The Odd Couple.
