Murder and mayhem collide in hilarious fashion as new radio station WCKY is preparing to air its first show in 1939.
As the Clementine Sisters are about to sing the opening jingle, the action behind the scenes is infused with both excitement and drama. Head writer Roy plans to propose on air to assistant director Polly. One of the radio actresses, Sarah, has helped him procure a ring, and of course, Polly walks in just as Roy is down on one knee practicing his proposal with Sarah. When Sarah ends up dead a few minutes later as she’s about to make her own shocking and unscripted announcement on the air, all signs point to poor Roy.
By the time the night is over, two other on-air talents have also been murdered, and each time, Roy is the prime suspect. It’s up to our creative writer to solve the mystery himself and reveal the actual killer through a live radio broadcast!
This challenging comedy will be a season highlight for high schools, colleges, and community theatres looking for an extremely well-crafted murder mystery that’s also an engaging period piece.
The production also provides an opportunity to showcase three talented singers who sing a half dozen jingles in Andrews Sisters fashion and Foley artists who create all the sound effects live. After all, it’s a wacky radio show!
This play is rated PG.
