I know, I know. The biggest complaint about Sandbox Radio Live! is that the super fun recording sessions are always sold out, making it damned tough to watch the magic being made. Of course, the final magic is always eventually available to you as a podcast. In fact, Episode 5: “An Unexpected Twist” just recently dropped and is available here .
But now Seattle’s beloved arts festival Bumbershoot is offering a one time solution to this conundrum. This coming Labor Day (September 3) is your chance to see a “best of Sandbox Radio Live!” at the Center Theatre in the Armory, which has about thrice as many seats as our usual venue. We will start at 7pm and pack an episode’s worth of fabulousness in just one hour.
Here’s what’s in store:
"Notes from the Workplace" by Vincent Delaney
"Why We Run" by Scot Augustson
PSAs for Hanford Challenge and World Arts Access
A blues tune from Charles Leggett and The Sandbox Radio Orchestra.
Ads from "The Back of the 358" and a teaser for what's coming in Markheim by Paul Mullin
"T-Minus" by Elizabeth Heffron
"Barcarolle" from Tales of Hoffman featuring special guest soprano Heather Curtis Mullin, and more!
You read that correctly. My wife will be singing. And I will be acting: reprising my role of Sam, Prince of the World, in my on-going noir angel detective series, Markheim. That makes this Bumbershoot performance the very first time that Heather and I have shared a professional stage. So come see Sandbox Radio Live! at Bumbershoot and watch some hot history being made.
