When THE PETALUMA RADIO PLAYERS stepped out on stage last fall with their debut performance of 'THE SHADOW,' before two nights of packed houses, Sonoma County audiences went wild. (The live Foley work alone captivated theatre goers and Bay Area press alike.)
Now P.R.P. is back with FOUR RADIO PLAYS in an all new -- but quite vintage -- venue: The 'Goldman Ballroom' of the beautifully remodeled 'HOTEL PETALUMA,'
205 Kentucky Street (also 106 Washington Street)
ALL FOUR PLAYS WILL BE RECORDED FOR REBROADCAST ON PETALUMA'S NEW RADIO STATION: KPCA-FM (103.3)

SLAY BELLS RING
(Are you listening?)
On THURSDAY, DEC. 8th and FRIDAY, DEC. 9th at 8:00 PM, fans of live radio theatre are treated to four back-to-back radio plays including:
THE NOIR BEFORE CHRISTMAS (approx. 15 minutes)
Sometimes naughty is nice when the classic Christmas tale is punctuated by the rhythm of Tommy guns and retold through the longing eyes of a mob boss. Written by P.R.P.'s own Steven Lubliner.
A MURDERED MYSTERY (approximately 20 minutes)
This play-within-a-play opens with the butler, holding a gun, standing over a body. The butler assures us that things are not what they seem and that this is not a simple case of the butler did it. Instead, he introduces us to the other suspects: the body's former business partner, his ex-fiancée, his current fiancée, and her friend. But that's when the play begins...or falls apart, for the actors are as jealous, petty, and conceited as the characters they play. A troupe of egotistical actors who can't even stage a mystery without murdering it! Written by Karl Garner.
THE RAILROAD DETECTIVES (approximately 15 minutes)
The morning paper broke the story: First National Bank was hit by a robber wearing a black Homburg hat and concealing a pistol. Now, to the shock of bank owner, Frank Baxter, and his socialite wife, Gloria, a young man wearing the same hat has boarded their train and entered their car. What is a desperate, elite couple to do? What else? Written by new playwright, Kate Crockett Juliana.
PLAYING WITH KNIVES (approximately 11 minutes)
If you're going to mug this couple in an alley, be sure to bring some Excedrin. They're not black belts in karate, but they will chop you down to size with their relentless banter. Written by playwright and childrens book author, Natasha Yim.
