Am Fm Radio

Am Fm Radio

Description

Actors go on stage and freeze in a random position. Lights go down. An am/fm radio station is selected at random by an audience member by scrolling through an old-school radio using a dial. The radio plays over the PA system of the theatre. The actors move and mouth along to the radio. When the radio sound is turned down the actors take over. This works best with a radio play.
