There is street parking both in front and behind the building. There is also a municipal lot one block north at the corner of Tarpon and Pinellas Avenues. The ADA accessible entrance is near the rear entrance.

Bayou Radio Theatre presents radio commercials, comedies and dramas from a time gone by, read and performed live by actors and sound artists on a radio sound stage. With special permission, this year we are performing Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps. In addition, Director Graham Jones has adapted classic radio shows including Abbott and Costello, Sherlock Holmes and The Bickersons. After three years of sell-out shows and then COVID, the show is back with all new material.

Parts available are:

ANNOUNCER: Introduces the shows, reads advertising material.

PLAYERS (7): Play the various characters, reading from the scripts. 4 men and 3 women are needed who can present multiple ‘voices’ of all ages. Some accent work.

FOLEY ARTIST: Create and present all of the sound effects ‘live’. This role has been cast.

Auditions will consist of cold readings from various scripts. Rehearsals will be mostly on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm starting in mid-July.  Performances are weekends Sep 16 – 25.
