Concordia’s Theatre Department’s slate of events and shows for the second semester begins Friday night with the opening of “The Last Radio Show.”
This production is a comedy set in 1948 that follows the employees of KUKU Radio. The station’s broadcast towers have repeatedly fallen over, the electric company is planning to shut off the power, and they are losing actors. The play follows the station’s attempt to keep the show going.
CUNE junior Madeline Hudson-Knowlton plays Maggie, an engineer at the station.
“It has been such a privilege to be included in this show and I cannot wait to share it with the community,” Hudson-Knowlton said. “I think the audience is going to love ‘The Last Radio Show.’ Not only is the cast full of incredibly talented actors and actresses from both Concordia and the Seward community, but the plot is so fun and absolutely hilarious!”
The performance will be held at the Olde Glory Theatre in Seward at 7:15 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
