Rod Serling researcher Amy Boyle Johnston found a script for a radio play by Rod Serling from 1954 and brought it back to Binghamton. Director Kate Murray and actor Joe Bardales talk about re-creating this drama, which was a precursor to Serling’s ground-breaking series ‘The Twilight Zone’. It is part of the 2018 Serling Fest taking place July 6 and 7 in downtown Binghamton.
Southern Tier Actors Read is presenting an unusual celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. This year, instead of a well-known Irish play, as they have done for the past few years, they are presenting a free-wheeling vaudeville show, featuring skits, a puppet show, and of course music. As always, it is in the ballroom of the Phelps Mansion Museum. S.T.A.R. founder Judy McMahon tells us more. http://wskg.org/audio/starirish.mp3
Kate Murray, Andrew Haggerty, and Joe Bardales speak with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about S.T.A.R.’s presentation of Brian Friel’s drama Translations. Friel says that Translations is “a play about language and only about language” but it covers a wide range of subjects, often presented ironically. http://stream.publicbroadcasting.net/production/mp3/wskg/local-wskg-1032466.mp3
