Davis County Players to present old-time comedy radio show Friday and Saturday

Written by Diana. Posted in Events

Laugh the night away with the Davis County Players Friday and Saturday night, April 1st and 2nd, as they present a night of old-time radio with a Bloomfield twist, in the tradition of “A Prairie Home Companion.” The audience gets to watch a radio show unfold right before its very eyes, complete with plays, sketches, ad parodies and fantastic music. It’s two evenings of live radio at the Iowa Theatre in Bloomfield, with the “State Line Old Time Radio Revue,” featuring five short radio plays by Broadway playwright Eric Coble, as well as several additional comedy sketches, live music and much more — all under the guise of a fictional live radio broadcast on the fictional radio station, JMMG, 92.4.

Showtime is 7 p.m. each night. Tickets are available at Perfect Touch Wellness Center in Bloomfield or at the door the nights of the shows.

Come to the theatre ready to listen, laugh and cheer!
