Our Austin based friends, The Violet Crown Radio Players are pleased to present one of the rarest and most sought after radio dramas in history! It's the LOST and RESTORED Lux Radio Theater version of KING KONG!
HEAR dinosaurs RAGING! THRILL to the sounds of Kong RAMPAGING! LISTEN to the drama and heartbreak! ONLY from the VIOLET CROWN RADIO PLAYERS!
When legendary film director Cecil B. De Mille dreamed up a new direction for Lux Radio Theater, his vision was to bring the excitement of the movies to every home in America—through radio. The producers weren't as confident as he was, so he paid for a test broadcast (the first of its kind) in New York City.
The movie they adapted? None other than RKO's legendary King Kong. The studio audience loved it, but due to a power outage on the Eastern Seaboard, the transmission was never relayed. The script was lost in the whirlwind of the weekly series, and has never been heard before—UNTIL NOW!
Performance dates are December 1 - 4, and December 9 - 10. All performances are at 8:00 PM except Sunday, December 4, a 3:00 PM matinee. Thursday, December 1 is a "Pay What You Wish Preview."
All other performances are $12.50 in advance, $15.00 at the door.
