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!)

As previously announced, audition signups are now open for Tomes of Terror: Beyond Grimm, our Halloween show, which will have six performances from October 25–November 2. We've now got audition forms posted for you to fill out and bring with you to your audition slot. (Still to come: audition sides.) See our Auditions page to learn how to sign up for an audition slot and what to expect from auditions, and if you've already signed up for an audition slot, you can get the availability calendar and audition form to print out from our Audition Documents folder on Google Drive.
And of course, whether you want to audition or just come see the show, you can learn more about the performance itself on its event page. Also, congratulations to Tegan Kehoe, J. Deschene, Laura Corliss, and Joye Thaller, who have been chosen to direct the four segments.
As previously mentioned, audition signups are open for our Halloween show, Tomes of Terror: Beyond Grimm. Find out how to audition on our auditions page, and/or learn more about the show itself on its own page.
Also, we’re looking for directors for two of the segments! The deadline to apply to direct is this Friday, August 2! Read our call for directors to learn how to apply. Audio drama experience of some kind is a plus, but first-time directors are encouraged to apply.
Audition signups are now open for our summer mystery show, "Mrs. Hudson Presents" and to fill the role of Ms. Spock in a reprise of our gender-swapped adaptation of the original-series Star Trek episode "The Enterprise Incident". (You can always learn about any auditions we're scheduling on our Auditions page.) Update: Audition sides are available for both shows. See their respective audition pages for links. We’ve fixed the link for the Enterprise Incident sides.
At our recent steering committee meeting on Thursday, March 14, a new slate of officers was elected. None of the elections was contested. Re-elected were Financial Director Chris DeKalb, Managing Director Mare Freed, and Technical Director Karen Sarao. Jeremy Holstein was elected our new Artistic Director, and Will Spreadbury was elected our new Publicity Director. (Tori Queeno will be assisting Will with publicity.)
No one ran to fill the position of Clerk, alas, so that position is still vacant.
Congratulations to our incoming officers, and congratulations and thanks to our outgoing Artistic Director Liz Salazar and Publicity Director Michael Lin!
(You can read more about the roles of our officers, and see our artists in residence and appointed volunteer staff, on our PMRP People page.)
Would you like to work with PMRP in a more hands-on role? Now is your chance as it is time for elections for the PMRP officers. [Elections were held on Thursday, March 14. Nobody ran for Clerk, so that position is still open. Read more for our original election announcement, posted February 1.]
