by The Editors on December 1, 2016


Tonight, Carlsbad Village’s New Village Arts Theatre is running a pay-what-you-can preview of their new show The 1940s Radio Hour.

It’s December 1942, and New York’s little-radio-station-that-could, WOV, is about to air its final broadcast of the holiday-themed Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade. That’s the setting for The 1940’s Radio Hour, a timeless play full of classic tunes sung in four- and five-part harmony. With its dance routines, swinging music — including “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Blue Moon,” “You Go to My Head” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” — and beloved cast of characters, Radio Hour is a perfect holiday treat.

Tonight’s preview is at 8 PM. For more info, click the link. The New Village Arts Theatre is located at 2787 State Street in Carlsbad, California. If you prefer the phone, please call the box office at (760) 433-3245.
