‘Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play’
The Temple High School theater department will present “Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play” 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 19-21, at Temple High School.
Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a 1950s radio broadcast of the master of suspense’s earlier films. With “The Lodger,” “Sabotage” and “The 39 Steps,” the performance is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring.
Tickets are $8 and seats must be reserved in advance. Masks are required and other COVID-19 safety measures will be observed.
