HALLOWEEN SHOW – Call for Scripts!

This year, The WGRA Radio Theatre will be presenting its THIRD ANNUAL Halloween Special. This year, we’re doing something VERY special. We are putting up an anthology-style show featuring NEW VINTAGE works.

We are seeking short scripts (5-15minutes) that celebrate vintage horror!
Flying Saucers? Sure!
Ghosts? Why Not?
Horror/Comedy? BRING IT!

For inspiration – we suggest giving a listen to X-Minus One and The Inner Sanctum (available on Spotify).

The show will be produced on Sunday, October 29th at Philadelphia’s GOOD GOOD COMEDY THEATER.

All scripts remain the property of the writer (but may be edited to conform to our vintage radio format). There is no monetary compensation if your script is selected, but the writers of all selected scripts will receive:
– TWO tickets to the show (on WGRA)
– Credit in the show’s program
– A WGRA Radio Theatre t-shirt (select sizes available)
– Whatever other goodies we can conjure up.

Please e-mail your script to WGRARadioTheatre@gmail.com for consideration. Feel free to email us with any questions/concerns you may have.

DEADLINE: OCTOBER 1st, 11:59pm.


Want to Produce a WGRA Show?

BABY!How would you like to add the title “theatrical producer” to your resume?

From now until OCTOBER 3rd – anyone who buys a WGRA Radio Theatre t-shirt will be listed as a “Special Producer” in the program for our special – VERY SPECIAL – Halloween show at Philly SketchFest Presents!

They’re – obviously – very cozy.

Shirts are $19.99 (+shipping, unless you’d rather pick them up at the show).

We’ll be back on the air in October!

Motive: Murder is BACK!

We are SO EXCITED to bring Motive: Murder! back to life on the Good Good Comedy stage!

Our first original script, Motive: Murder! is a choose-your-own-adventure-style radioplay. The first audience solved the mystery…so for this show – we’re adding a few new twists!

We are excited to have our ORIGINAL CAST back as well as the PHILLY UKULELE ORCHESTRA.

Rumor has it we’ll also have some t-shirts on sale, too!

Motive: Murder! will be presented by Good Good Comedy at Plays & Players Theater (1714 Delancey Pl, Phila, PA) on Thursday, August 18th @ 8:30pm.
