Ocean Pines Players and Radio Airwaves Combining Talents
To Bring a Whole New Wave of Entertainment to Ocean City
Lovers of live theater and old-time radio can look forward to exciting new experiences with the combining of the Ocean Pines Players and the Radio Airwaves ensembles. The two community entertainment groups have announced their merger, with Radio Airwaves joining Ocean Pines Players.
The Ocean Pines Players have been performing in and around Ocean City for more than 40 years, since 1974. Radio Airwaves has been reproducing old-time radio programs since 2004 and is dedicated to preserving the rich heritage of this traditional American art form. The newly merged group is now planning a busy 2020 season that includes plays, musical theater, cabarets, radio plays, and museum collaborations.
In its most recent shows, Radio Airwaves performed a George Burns and Gracie Allen comedy standard Income Tax Problems, originally aired March 8, 1950, and My Favorite Husband, first broadcast on April 30, 1950, starring Lucille Ball and Richard Denning as Liz and George Cooper, a married couple “who live together and like it.”
The Ocean Pines Players’ season for the remainder of the year is set, with the zany comedy, Assisted Living the Musical, by Rick Compton and Betsy Bennett, in November, followed by December’s joint production with Pocomoke City’s historic Mar-Va Theater of ’Twas the Night Before Christmas by Ken Ludwig, in which a mouse, an elf, and a spunky girl, Emily, who won’t take no for an answer, go on a quest to find out why Santa missed their house last year.
The Ocean Pines Players is a local, all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. For more details on these productions and for more information on the Ocean Pines Players follow us on Facebook or our web page at www.oceanpinesplayers.com.
