For Halloween - The Brazilian Cat


The Brazilian Cat

Adapted for audio by Jim Cort from a short story by Arthur Conan Doyle.

One of the many stories Doyle wrote outside his famous Sherlock Holmes works. It's a horror-adventure story that begins with a young man with aristocratic connections, but no money hoping to live with, and possibly fend off some creditors with the help of his wealthy first cousin, a man who has the curious hobby of collecting strange and dangerous exotic pets.

The short story is part of Doyle's "Tales of Terror and Mystery" collection.

Voice talents by David Grant, Kevin Nash, Dale Leena Evans, Larry Groebe and Gary Layton.
Music by Lucien D├ęsar.
Directed and Mixed by Richard Frohlich


Recorded in studio July 2004, in cooperation with the Arlington Museum of Art

H.G. Wells' The Time Machine


The Texas Radio Theatre Company adapts H.G. Wells' classic story, where we travel to the year 100,080 and a world where beauty and terror live side-by-side. Suddenly the time machine, our only exit, is missing. Could the docile and weak inhabitants called Eloi be something other than what they appear, or is there something lurking in the shadows.

Ken Raney provides the live sound effects and Richard Frohlich directs and engineers.

Happy Birthday TRTC...

After reading on Audio Drama Talk that Decoder Ring Theatre just turned four, I looked back to when Texas Radio Theatre first performed.

I knew it was sometime in October 2001... but I had to look back through my hard drive records and I found out that we were officially 8 years old YESTERDAY.

On October 15, 2001 we performed our first play in front of an audience at a Barnes and Nobel in North Richland Hills, Texas in cooperation with the Tarrant Area Guild of Storytellers.


We performed "Domingo Siete" it was an enormous hit, and no recordings exist.

We performed our second show, and OTR recreation of War of the Worlds at a the "Someplace Else Pub" in Arlington Texas on October 31st

The second show had us feeling a bit like the Blues Brothers... because the bar we performed in was filled with folks waiting for us to get done, because we were encroaching on their karaoke time.

So although we had been working on scripts and gathering people for nearly a year prior... we first performed 8 years ago yesterday -

so... Happy Birthday to us!
