Radio Drama is coming to ECR
Listen as Dr Watson regales us with another tale of his friend, the amazing detective Sherlock Holmes and
The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual. Join Seattle theatre group The Baggy Pants with our own Kittitas County native Ian Fraser as they recreate an Old Time Radio drama originally broadcast in 1939 starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.
It’s the beginning of an exciting new era at ECR that is supported by a grant from the Ellensburg Arts Commission. The first airing of The Adventure of the Musgrave Ritual will be 7:00pm Sunday October 22, 2017 and rebroadcast again at 7:00pm on Monday , October 23.
Come down to the 420 Building, 420 N. Pearl at 4:00pm Sunday afternoon October 22, we will have a workshop with a preview of the show, a “talk back” with the actors, a question and answer session, and an opportunity to practice a little radio drama ourselves. The first opportunity to try these acting skills will be creating a short holiday drama to be part of the Americana Live Holiday Show.
The Following Weekend and Not to Be Missed
What Is ECR?
Ellensburg Community Radio (ECR) is a local nonprofit radio station operated by a group of local citizens who want the community to come together and have fun. We want to share stories, music, news, and upcoming events and to celebrate the diversity and interesting characters who make up our town. We are all different, and that’s a very good thing.
ECR began its live internet radio stream in late October 2014 and can be heard via any web browser or through our mobile apps. Our goal is to showcase our community’s diverse identity and provide a unique service of education, information, and entertainment.
If you’d like to help us achieve these goals, we invite you to get involved in a number of different ways. We’re currently looking for new members on our board of directors, and we are always seeking volunteers to work on a number of different committees. And if you’ve always dreamed of hosting a radio program, just let us know about your ideas, and we’ll get you started with your own show!
