“Hi-Fi Sci-Fi and Horror!” - Bill Tush, Atlanta Union Actors for Charity

     (Atlanta) Old Radio Plays read by professionals here have become a tradition and a whole lotta' fun...
     This year's theme coincides nicely with the SCARY pumpkin season as well as the dramatic increase in, "Worldwide UFO sightings,"  now reported on Mainstream News. Contrast that to the first piece, "Buck Rogers," directed by Veteran Atlanta Acting Icon Doug Kaye. Next, the author Arch Oboler is read by Bill Tush in, Lights Out - "The Dark""Little Old Lady," directed by Veteran Atlanta Acting Icons Barry Stoltze and Jon Hayden. Following in Act 2 is,  "The Lottery," directed by Veteran Atlanta Acting Icon Sheri Mann Stewart. "
     Closing out the evening is, "X MINUS ONE: Venus Is A Man’s World,"directed by Veteran Atlanta Acting Icon Karen Beyer.


Just in time for Halloween, the Tri-Union Radio Players of AFTRA, SAG, and Equity offer their talents to the 8th annual fundraiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, “Lend Me an Ear”, a night of Old Time Radio recreations. This year’s theme: “Hi-Fi Sci-Fi and Horror!”
