Before there was television
Before there were movies
There were RADIO programs.

It's like a podcast with a live audience.
Yes, families actually gathered around their
radios in the evening and listened to
comedies, detective dramas, action
adventures, horror stories and more.
Milwaukee Youth Theatre is taking a trip
back in time to explore the golden days of
radio in a theater production that
showcases old radio scripts from the 1940s.
Cast members will perform comedic
sketches from Fibber McGee & Molly and
Abbott & Costello; detective dramas such
as Ellery Queen and action adventures
such as Captain Midnight Adventure. All
sketches will be performed live by
Milwaukee Youth Theatre actors and will
include unique sound effects.

The Secret Garden tells the story of Mary
Lennox, a selfish and disagreeable 10-year-
old girl whose parents have died during a
cholera epidemic in India. Mary is sent to
England to live in a dreary mansion with
her widower uncle, Archibald, who is still
mourning the death of his wife. Mary finds
she is alone and lost in a grown-up world.
She meets her cousin, Colin, a reclusive,
sick boy who seems incapable of getting
out of bed. With the help of the mansion’s
servants and their children everything
changes when the secret garden and the
magical powers of nature are discovered
leading to everyone’s rejuvenated outlook
on life.
