Radio theatre has a rich and storied tradition. Developed in the 1920s and growing in popularity over the next several decades, it’s a form of dramatic entertainment that, in its heyday, brought family and friends together, as they gathered around the radio to share in thrilling adventures, raucous comedies and compelling mysteries. Millions of listeners tuned in to listen to the broadcasts, featuring the top actors of the time.
Technological advances in special effects and sound design enable us to enhance the experience and engage the audience in dramatic and surprising new ways. Come see—and hear—for yourself at the Golden Age Radio Hour. It’s a weekly live performance, delivered by notable Hollywood actors, dramatizing a wide variety of remarkable stories written by L. Ron Hubbard during the Golden Age of popular American fiction.
From science fiction and fantasy to action/adventure to romance and westerns, Mr. Hubbard published more than 200 works of fiction under 15 different pennames in the 1930s and 40s. Now beautifully republished and repackaged, they are available in the Stories from the Golden Age series—in paperback editions as well as in multi-cast audio dramas.
