AFTRA newsletter

October 2011

Just in time for Halloween, the Tri-Union Radio Players of AFTRA, SAG and Equity offer their talents to the 8th annual fundraiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank, “Lend Me an Ear,” a night of Old Time Radio recreations. This year’s theme: “Hi-Fi Sci-Fi and Horror!”

AND WE HAVE GREAT NEWS! We’re adding a second night! The Wieuca Road Baptist Church has graciously offered the use of their Fellowship Hall for the benefit of the ACFB! Plus, TBS/CNN’s Bill Tush will be joining us again this year.

The program includes fan favorite Buck Rogers in the 25th Century; 2 thrillers penned by the notorious Arch Oboler for his program “Lights Out”; the famous short story “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson; and X Minus One with a humorous extraterrestrial tale from the future entitled “Venus is a Man’s World.” Terror, mystery and space-age intrigue will abound!

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 24 at our usual venue, the New American Shakespeare Tavern, 499 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, GA across from the Emory Hospital Midtown. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and authentic English fare and beverages will be available. Paid parking is across the street at the hospital.

Doors open at the church at 6:45 p.m. Limited concessions will be available and there is adjacent parking.

Admission is $15 and all net proceeds will go to the ACFB to help feed the less privileged during the holiday season. Tickets may be purchased at the door the day of the event or online in October at Cash or a check made out to the Atlanta Community Food Bank please ONLY at the door.

Come join us for our ongoing salute to The Golden Age of Radio as more than 40 Atlanta artists turn back the clock while lending a helping hand to the ACFB!

Lend us your ears and enjoy remembering the “Theater of Imagination”!
