MSDA Gets Creative with Creative Arts 

A Return to Radio for MSDA Fosters Socially Distanced Cast and Virtual Performances to be Streamed, November 13 & 14, 7:30 pm

In true show business form, “the show must go on!” and MSDA has turned back the dial on the time machine to the early 1900s for the genre of its fall 2020 production. 

In making the return to radio, a format absent of the traditionally complex and close-contact stage direction and crowded backstage inner-workings, the Mount’s Performing Arts students and faculty have been able to maintain a safe environment, while tirelessly planning for and rehearsing two plays: “The 39 Steps” and “The Radio Play Disaster.”

In the romantic thriller, “The 39 Steps,” the main character, Richard Hannay, is visiting London when he winds up involved with a counter-espionage agent, a murder, and a spy ring. “The Radio Play Disaster” sees self-proclaimed genius Harlan Bean poised to make history with her sci-fi radio masterpiece Battle of the Planets. But an ambitious actress and disgruntled sound engineer soon send the broadcast hilariously off the rails.  

Performances scheduled for Friday and Saturday, November 13 and 14, starting at 7:30 pm will be streamed via BroadwayOnDemand. Audiences far and wide will be able to spend an evening enjoying the talents of the Mount’s performing arts students in the comfort of their own living room. 

Family stream access is $30 per group, and single stream access is $12 per individual. Click the links to purchase access to the performances:
