Next for Hedgerow Theatre: ‘The Boogie-Woogie Radio Hour’

Hedgerow Theatre turns the calendar back to the year 1948 and lets audiences tune in to Radio WBGW, the biggest little radio station the biggest small town in Texas. The 10th Anniversary LIVE Radio Production is the hottest ticket in town, the high school gym is bound to be full to the brim and everyone it town is buzzing with excitement! There’s even a big name Star scheduled to perform! But what happens when that big name gets re-routed at the last minute? Will the anniversary celebration come to a screeching halt disappointing everyone? Who could possibly save the day?
Find out by attending the musical revue, “The Boogie Woogie Radio Hour,” created by former company members Sarah Gafgen and Carl Smith and current company member Shaun Yates.

“The premise of the piece is that a small, scrappy radio station recruits a big New York troupe to join them for their first broadcast for a live audience and when things don’t work out exactly as planned everyone has to work together,” said co-creator Gafgen.

“This show will have lots of fun, our goal is to bring lots of memories of these great classic songs and give the audience lots of opportunity for belly laughs,” said Gafgen, “this is a fusion of a classic radio play and a musical review, hopefully with some fun surprises.”

Featuring classic standards like “Puttin’ on the Ritz,” “Sentimental Journey,” “What’ll I do,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Count Your Blessings,” and of course “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”

“This show is a chance to turn back the clock to radio’s heyday with a few unexpected twists along the way,” said Gafgen.

The first performance of Boogie Woogie Radio Hour is Thursday, January 11, at 7:30 p.m. There will be a Wednesday matinee on January 17, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. and the show signs off Sunday January 28, at 2 p.m.
