Monmouth Community Players will present the third annual “When Radio Was King” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 15 and 16, and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17, at Cumston Hall, Main Street in Monmouth.

Before Netflix, Hulu and cable TV, families would crowd around the radio to listen to their favorite shows. The Monmouth Community Players invites audiences to take a trip into the 1950s and experience a live radio show in the third annual production “When Radio Was King.” This production is being directed by Josie French of Lewiston.

The audience can expect to see an authentic old-time radio show, complete with old vaudeville comedy routines, sketches and commercials including sound effects — just like they would experience if they were in the audience of a real radio program.

The cast is a mixture of vocal and comedic talent, ages ranging from 13 to 70-plus, consisting of: Andy Tolman and Elaine Katz, both of Readfield; Gregor Smith, of Belgrade; Ginger Smith, Cindy Dunham, Amy Griswold and Peggy O’Kane, all of Winthrop; Josie French, Jeff Fairfield and Nancy Keneally, all of of Lewiston; Brittany Bazinet, Dan Allard, Shane Stevens and Meredith Stevens, all of Greene; and David Marshall, Karen Lipovsky, Danny Gay and Megan Record, all of Monmouth.

Tickets cost $14 for general admission and $12 for students and seniors.
