Old Time Radio Returns to Creative 360

Old Time Radio Returns to Creative 360

– On Friday March 17, and Saturday March 18, the Creative Radio Network brings laughter to Creative 360’s Bayliss Street stage with The Life of Riley, a hilarious 1944 radio show that was turned into a film in 1949 starring Jackie Gleason.

The main character, Riley, was famous for cheerfully disrupting life with his malapropisms and ill-timed interventions into minor problems. His stock answer to every turn of fate, ‘What a revoltin’ development this is!’ became one of the most memorable catch phrases in radio entertainment.

“The Old Time Radio Shows here are special,” said Executive Director Laura Vosejpka. “They lighten your hearts as you step into the best part of a different era. You will spend your evening losing yourself in laughter.”

The show will be guided by award winning director Carol Rumba and will star Creative Radio Network favorites: David Ritter, John McPeak, Peter Brooks, Terri Shroeder, JoAnn Pobocik, and David King. Live sound effects created by Foley artist Cheryl Felch will make you feel like you are right there in the studio and each episode of the show is punctuated by original commercial jingles. It’s a great opportunity for guests of all ages to laugh and relax while enjoying the snacks and beverages they brought from home.

“The Life of Riley” Old Time Radio Show performances are Friday, March 17 and Saturday, March 18 from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Admission to this event is $15 prepay or $20 at the door. Seating is limited.
