MONROE, Wisconsin — Be in the audience Friday and Saturday, Jan. 16-17, when the Monroe Arts Center (MAC) presents “On the Air” Radio Variety Show.
MAC is proud to host this annual event showcasing southern Wisconsin’s and northern Illinois’ wealth of highly talented individuals and groups in an evening of lively family entertainment. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. at the Monroe High School Performing Arts Center, 1600 26th St., in Monroe, Wisconsin.
Emceed by Big Radio personality Dan Blum, “On the Air” will be presented like a live radio variety show broadcast, complete with vocal and instrumental musical entertainment, tongue-in-cheek radio drama, sponsor ads in the style of old-time radio commercials, jokes sprinkled throughout the show, an on-stage house band, and a cast finale. The performance is scheduled for broadcast on Big Radio.
“On the Air” director Jean Adler Woolworth, and Musical Director Rich Woolworth, had the opportunity to watch numerous acts during two audition sessions this past November.
“There is so much wonderful talent in our area, and we wished we could have included everyone who auditioned,” explains Jean. “As directors, our initial concerns when casting the show is to determine what the audience will enjoy, and make sure we have assembled an authentic variety show that is within the time limitations.”
