Audition for our spring show!

Auditions are now open for our spring show, featuring “Filibus: The Mysterious Sky Pirate”, an adaptation of the 1915 silent film, and “Confidence Confidant”, an original dramatization of one of the historical cases of Kate Warne, the first female Pinkerton agent. Both segments feature leading women who are masters of intrigue, deception, and adventure!

To learn more about our audition process and sign up for an audition slot, go to (and for more about the show itself see its event page). (Also, auditions will be on February 7th for our studio project “The Yellow Wallpaper”.)

We perform in the style of the Golden Age of Radio with actors on-book in front of microphones and sound effects produced onstage in front of a live audience.

Auditions will be on Monday, January 28th, and Tuesday, January 29th, with callbacks (if needed) on Thursday, January 31st. Performances will be from April 5th–13th in Somerville, MA.

There will be positions for both voice and foley artists! PMRP encourages performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds to audition. Those with disabilities are welcome to audition, although please note our rehearsal/performance space is not wheelchair accessible.

We cannot accept Equity members at this time.

Listen to Santa Claus Conquers the Martians on Christmas Eve!

If you missed our live performances of “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” this year, you have another chance to listen to it! South Shore radio station 95.9 WATD FM will be broadcasting and streaming the recording of our Saturday evening performance (edited for time) at 8:00pm (EST) on Christmas Eve as part of their holiday broadcast lineup. (PMRP fans may also be interested in their 6pm broadast of “A Christmas Carol” by the Talking Information Center Radio and Podcast Players, and their 7pm Christmas storytelling show.)

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians! One weekend only!

Our original adaptation of the dubious Christmas classic Santa Claus Conquers the Martians was so much fun for us and the audiences last year that we’re doing it again! Performances are Friday, December 7, at 8pm, and Saturday, December 8, at 2pm and again at 8pm, all at Unity Somerville on College Ave in Davis Square. Come see the spirit of Christmas wrap the red planet in a green bow! See the plucky Earth children match wits with the curmudgeonly Voldar! See Dropo find his true calling! But will Santa be able to get back to Earth in time for Christmas Eve, or will Earth have to give him up? It’s the same radio-drama improvement of the old UHF standby, this year with live sound effects! Tickets (or reservations, if you want to buy your ticket at the show) are available on our tickets page, and our event page has more information.

Follow-Up Statement Re: Arisia Convention Performances

We at the Post-Meridian Radio Players have been closely following and discussing the steps that the Arisia leadership have been taking in recent days to repair their relationship with their fans and collaborators,. We recognize the changes in Executive Board membership and are encouraged by the ongoing policy review, as well as pleased that the 2019 convention location has been changed in support of the striking workers of the Westin Boston Waterfront. After careful consideration, we have come to the belief that the changes made thus far are meaningful, sincere, and executed in good faith. (Read more for the rest of our statement.)

Public Statement Re: Arisia Convention Performances

We at the Post-Meridian Radio Players are committed to supporting Crystal Huff following her bringing to light the deeply upsetting actions taken by Arisia leadership to shield and promote her assailant.

As a performance group, we have long appreciated our working relationship with the Arisia convention. That relationship ends immediately, unless the called-for changes in leadership take place. (Read more for the rest of our statement.)
