FSU’s Theatre and Dance and WFWM Public Radio Foster Spirit of Togetherness With “World War II Radio Christmas”
This holiday season, step inside the studio of a 1940s live-radio broadcast as Frostburg State University’s Department of Theatre and Dance and WFWM 91.9 FM Public Radio host a production of “World War II Radio Christmas.” Directed by Mairzy Yost-Rushton, performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2, and Thursday to Saturday, Dec. 7 through 9, at 7:30 p.m., with two matinee performances on Dec. 3 and 9 at 2 p.m.
In this heart-warming and family-friendly production, fun jingles, live sound effects and period songs fill the airwaves between moving, true-life stories of male and female soldiers and the families and communities affected by their absence. Sponsored by Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste – as well as FSU’s own WFWM Public Radio – “World War II Radio Christmas” reminds everyone of the importance of coming together for the holidays.
“World War II Radio Christmas” is recommended for ages six and older.
