Radiotheatre is a PERFORMANCE GROUP that creates AUDIO THEATRE live on stage inspired by old time radio dramas, yet, does not seek to re create period shows, nor traditional plays.  By combining 21st Century sound technology, uniquely written scripts, a cast of story tellers, original orchestral scores and a plethora of sound effects, Radiotheatre produces a new hybrid, environmental art form.  Its content is also unique in that it draws its inspiration from pulp genres usually ignored by live theatre; ie, adventure, science fiction, horror, crime.
