Community Theater Brings Back Radio Plays

Apr 14, 2020

Before there was television, radio theatre entertained families in their homes. Actors read their lines complete with sound effects - and imagination helped the productions come to life. Well, the Sioux Empire Community Theater is bringing that tradition back. It’s a way to share shows virtually during the global pandemic.  


The Sioux Empire Community Theater’s ‘virtual season’ has begun. The first radio play is called  “Death of a Jazz Man.” It’s a Monty Python-esque retelling of “Death of Salesman.”
