Raconteur Radio stages theatrical presentations of vintage radio plays, classic works of literature, and pop culture parodies for live audiences in a variety of venues throughout the Tri-State area: libraries, adult communities, senior centers, community/cultural centers, restaurants, bars, high schools, grammar schools, and, on occasion, private homes.
Raconteur Radio productions are staged around (and amplified by) an art deco "fat boy" and feature theatrical lighting, period costumes, vintage commercials, Golden Age radio equipment, and extensive sound effects. Productions require an 8' X 8' cleared space at the head of a room that can ideally go dark, easy access to an electrical outlet, four or five chairs, and a minimum of twenty minutes to set up.
