Join us Halloween weekend (10/31 & 11/1) as we present stories, poems and ghastly tales that we shall unleash upon the the internet! For 2020 we will be presenting Spooky Soliloquies, tales told by a single reader, available for free to stream or download. Click on “Read more” or go to the Spooky Soliloquies page to learn how to propose a story, offer to record one, or both! (You can offer to record a story you choose yourself that’s in the public domain or that you have rights to, propose a story you’ve written or that is in the public domain, or offer to read a story of our choosing.)
She seeks out justice where others cannot go; she is the Silver Shade. The Post Meridian Radio Players presents an homage to the pulp adventure series of the golden age of radio. High school teacher Penelope Umberson has a super power she keeps hidden from the world, but when a student comes to her for help when a parent is framed for murder, she must learn to use her ability to set things right.
At the Boskone science-fiction conference in pre-lockdown February of this year, PMRP performed an original superhero drama in the style of the Golden Age of Radio, “The Silver Shade: Help from the Shadows”, and you can now listen to it online (or download it) for free here!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone what was to be our spring show, Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Plan 8 from the Outer Ether. While the show will not be performed in April as scheduled, it will be performed at a later date! (We are considering some options, including our usual Halloween slot later this year.)
Stay safe, and we hope you look forward to watching Plan 8 and Plan 9 when we perform them.
Congratulations to the cast of PMRP’s spring show, Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Plan 8 from the Outer Ether, going up in April, and to the cast of our latest studio recording project, “The Renegotiation”, which will be released as an audio download! Find out more (and learn who’s in the cast and crew) about our adaptation of the infamous Ed Wood movie, and our original companion prequel, on that show’s page, and find out more about our studio project adapting a classic folk tale and learn who the cast are on that project’s page.
Audition documents (sides, character descriptions, and paper forms) have just been posted for “The Renegotiation”, PMRP’s studio project, which is auditioning on February 11. And we're still eager for more signups for auditions for our spring show, “Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Plan 8 from the Outer Ether”, for which audition slots are available on both February 10 and February 11. You can learn about both shows on our Auditions page, or you can go straight to the individual audition page for the Renegotiation or for Plan 9 and Plan 8!
We have two different audition opportunities open now on our Auditions page!
Our spring show will be “Plan 9 from Outer Space,” and “Plan 8 from the Outer Ether” — an adaptation of the infamous Ed Wood film...along with an original prequel fiasco! For this show we’re seeking voice actors, live Foley sound-effects artists, and several behind-the-scenes positions.
We’re also seeking voice actors and some additional positions for PMRP Presents’ next studio recording project, “The Renegotiation”, in which a talented blacksmith faces the consequences of a deal with the Devil.
Auditions slots for the spring show will be Monday, February 10th and Tuesday, February 11th (with possible callbacks on Thursday, February 13th). Audition slots for the studio recording will be on Tuesday, February 11th (overlapping with the auditions for the spring show). Rehearsals and performances/recordings will be scheduled so as not to conflict, so you can audition for both, but you’d need to sign up for a separate audition slot for each — and make sure your auditions for each aren’t at the same time!
Nothing can properly convey the madcap holiday delight of seeing Santa Claus Conquers the Martians live, but if you want some idea what to expect, we've got a preview video for you! Santa Claus Conquers the Martians returns December 6th and 7th for three performances only! See the event page for more information about the show, or our Tickets page to buy tickets in advance, or make seat reservations and pay at the door.

Update: We’ve uploaded new Hargo sides. Now, with more Hargo! We’ll have extra copies of the Hargo sides printed out at auditions, but you’ll probably want to look over the updated selections if you get a chance.
Come try out for the 3rd Annual Post-Meridian Radio Players production of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians! While most of last year's cast are reprising their roles, we find ourselves with a couple of roles to fill, so if you want to help us bring some holiday cheer to the children of Somerville and Mars, head over to our Auditions page to find out what roles are available, learn how to audition, and check out the sides and then sign up for an audition slot! Auditions are on September 16 (let us know if you want to audition but can’t make that date!) and there will be three performances on December 6 and 7.
The Post-Meridian Radio Players will be reprising our original adaptation of “The Cask of Amontillado” at the Somerville Media Center’s pop-up performance space VOX POP in Assembly Row at 431 Artisan Way, Assembly Square, Somerville. The show is this Friday only at 7pm, with a Q-and-A session after the performance, and it's free, although RSVPs on EventBrite are appreciated.
This performance will be broadcast live on Somerville Cable Access TV, and streamed live on SCATV and on Facebook! (And eventually there’ll be video posted to YouTube, too!)
