The Edgar Allan Poe Afterlife Radio Show

The Edgar Allan Poe Afterlife Radio Show brings us into the world of Poe, as his spirit is determined to keep his works alive for a new generation. Accompanied by his very opinionated feline companion, Poe presents several of his most well-known works in the format of a “radio show,” complete with live “Foley” sound effects! This unique production will delight fans of Poe, fans of radio, and fans of gothic amusement (as well as fans of talking cats and feisty spirits)!

These lovable characters spring to life with a smart, funny script and bouncy, hummable score. Audiences will be laughing in the aisles when they aren’t playing games of bingo along with the cast! “Popcorn, friendship, intrigue and a famous five-letter word.

2019-2020 Season

Produced on Oct. 10, 12, 13 and 18, 19, 20 of 2019.

Directed by Michael McVey
The first production of our 2019-2020 season was a dark comedy from award winning Playwright Sam Shepard. This American classic explores alternatives that might spring from the demented terrain of the California landscape. Sons of a desert-dwelling alcoholic and a suburban wanderer clash over a film script. Austin, the achiever, is working on a script he has sold to producer Sal Kimmer when Lee, a demented petty thief, drops in. He pitches his own idea for a movie to Kimmer, who then wants Austin to junk his bleak, modern love story and write Lee’s trashy Western tale. Finalist, 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Two on the Aisle, Three in the Van
Apr. 17, 18, 19 and 24, 25, 26

Welcome to another stellar season at the Neighborhood Actors Summerfun Repertory Theatre, a friendly little playhouse where, due to a lack of wing space, the company spends their downtime in the parking lot around an aging hippie/now turned techie’s van. The members of the company are the egos and obstacles that fall into the lap of Mike, a nice-guy director who ends up with far more than he bargained for. Anyone who’s ever seen a show may know these people. Anyone who’s ever done a show may be these people.
“An amusing, energetic jolt that skewers pretentious concept directors yet has a soft spot for actors and technicians.” – Backstage.

2018-2019 Season

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This comedy is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a cast of four), an onstage plane crash, missing fingers, handcuffs and some good old-fashioned romance. Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2007.
