The actors and technical crew from the Radio Theater Project that WMNF and the Studio@620 collaborate on were interviewed by Bay News 9 for a feature due to air on Tuesday, April 15.

The monthly performances have built up an enthusiastic audience over the last five years. Professional actors perform radio scripts by local and national authors, accompanied by live sound effects artist Matt Cowley. Shows take place at the Studio@620 in downtown St Pete, and WMNF records the performance in front of an audience for later broadcast. Fans set a record for attendance last month, to hear the new radio plays and the latest episode of local favorite Noel Berlin, Cabaret Detective.

You can catch us on Tuesday April 15 at 7 p.m. at the Studio@620. It's pay what you can at the door.

The next Radio Theatre Project is Monday, May 19. After that, we'll be back in the fall at 620 with more new work.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Hillsborough Arts Council, WMNF will spend the summer bringing new radio theatre pieces and poetry, music, visual art, local history and more to four different locations in Tampa.

Monday, June 16 at 7 p.m. - the new Seminole Heights Public Library

Saturday, July 19 - the Glazer Children's Museum downtown

Monday, August 18 - the Carrollwood Cultural Center

and in September, the University of South Florida showcases student writers, actors, artists and musicians.
