KEARNEY – Audiences will step back in time to a 1940’s radio station in “Vintage: A Golden-Era Radio Show,” a play written by UNK theatre professor Janice Fronczak and cast.

The University Theatre at Kearney will present “Vintage: A Golden-Era Radio Show” Wednesday through Sunday (Feb. 18-22) at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

The play is an original work written by show director Fronczak and her cast. Two published scripts – “The Invisible Man” and “The Spiral Staircase” – are embedded in the script that Fronczak and her cast wrote together.

The audience will be transported to a 1940’s radio station where a motley cast of characters brings two classic mysteries to life.

“Vintage: A Golden-Era Radio Show” is 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday (Feb. 18-21) and 2 p.m. Sunday (Feb. 22). The portion of the show including “The Invisible Man” will be broadcast as a live radio show on UNK’s KLPR 91.1 Feb. 18 and 20.

Tickets are for adults; for non-UNK students, seniors and UNK faculty and staff; for groups of 10 or more; and free for UNK students with a valid ID. Seating in the Studio Theatre is limited, so advance reservations are strongly encouraged.

For reservations, contact the Theatre Box Office at 308.865.8417 or boxoffice@unk.edu.
