In 1984 William L. Brown and Patrick Stansbury created the Atlanta Radio Theatre Company, a group dedicated to preserving and promoting audio drama through the creation of original works and new adaptations. It shouldn’t have worked. It wasn’t expected to last more than a couple of years. But the idea caught on. The idea that the human imagination is powerful and that good storytelling starts with the story.
In the last quarter-century ARTC has performed in countless venues, hundreds of live performances, over two dozen studio productions, and with a vast array of actors and actresses ranging from inexperienced amateurs to Hollywood and television stars such as John Rhys-Davies and Jewel Staite. Staying true to the vision of producing original work, ARTC has nurtured dozens of local authors as well as adapted and performed the work of major writers including Robert A. Heinlein, H. G. Wells, H. P. Lovecraft, and A. E. van Vogt.
Join us on March 7 and 8 at the Academy Theatre in Avondale as we kick off a celebration of 25 years of audio excellence with a selection of some of our favorite original audio dramas, culminating with Blues for Johnny Raven by Thomas E. Fuller. Testing the limits of live performance in audio, Blues for Johnny Raven explores the adventures of a man who has been caught up in The Loop, a purely sonic environment where the ultimate currency is Ambience and the ultimate fear is being left in the Background.
