Live Radio Drama presentations have become a highly popular feature on the NEAT agenda!
After the success of the Classic Thriller SORRY, WRONG NUMBER by Lucille Fletcher in January and the obscure MARX BROTHERS RADIO HOUR; Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel in August, we have begun preparations for Orson Welles’ famous adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel DRACULA.
The finest radio drama of the 1930’s was The Mercury Theatre on the Air, a show featuring the acclaimed New York Drama Company founded by   American actor, director, writer, and producer Orson Welles.

DRACULA was first broadcast in 1938 and nearly 80 years later, is still a scary, sexualized masterpiece. At the time Orson Welles said: ‘Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” is the most hair-raising, marvelous book in the world and the best story of its kind ever written and ideally suited for presentation on the radio; that is the THEATRE OF THE MIND.’

Featuring Jenny Greenflower, Sylvia Owens, Helen Gallego, Joerg Witzsch, Martin C. Jelonek, John Peacock, Derrick Jenkins, Simon Bergmoser, Micha Weber, Narendra Kashyap

Show times:

October 10 at 20:00 hrs – MERLIN
October 13 at 20:00 hrs – THEATER AM OLGAECK
