It was a wonderful experience to put on a full production of 3 episodes. We thoroughly enjoyed our work at The Center on Main in Falls Village, CT. We are grateful to Laurie Wadsworth for her extraordinary assistance in getting the program created there. We are grateful to Michael Illian for filming the production. We are grateful to Shaw Israel Izikson who took some wonderful photos. We are grateful to our guest conductors, Shane, Mariel and Patrick.

We are grateful to our audience who supported the show and this benefit for the Lee H. Kellogg school.

I am grateful for the entire cast who shared their time and talent bringing this event to life.

Episode 215: Nutmeg Junction Live Part II

Nutmeg Junction performed full shows live for the very first time on 4/27/2019 at the Center on Main in Falls Village, CT. This is the audio of part two of the evening where the audio theater team performed 3 episodes

 

In part two our guest conductor for this episode was Mariel who acted in a prior Nutmeg Junction episode as “the doll” in our “Brady Bunch” homage of the Space-y Squad.

Our first story celebrates our “detective” characters all meeting and interacting for the very first time.

There’s Inspector Trompe-Loeil (Jandi Hanna), Harriet Holmes (Olivia Wadsworth), Nathaniel (Kurt Boucher) and Netta (Lana Peck) Chance, Daring Darling Darly (Deborah Goodman) and characters from other stories including Red Herring (Jeff Savage) and mention of Packa Dermy Poo, and Lenny Snitchwell (Jack Sheedy).

Rich Cyr portrays the librarian and also portrays…himself in a conversation with the Conductor, Conrad Sienkiewicz. Phil Hall portrays the Adman.

The second story we ran was a Doc Keen short which was heavy into audience participation.

I decided for the audio of this show to put in the recording of the live “Thank Your Lucky Stars”  story with Olivia Wadsworth as the world’s greatest audio theater magician on Jack Sheedy’s talk show-thank your lucky stars. It features wonderful piano by Robert C. Fullerton and Deborah Goodman as “the volunteer.

 

All stories were written by J. Timothy Quirk

Next post will be Part 3, the conclusion of the Live show!

Episode 213: Fanny and Fred in The Big Box Store!

Nutmeg Junction introduces Fanny and Fred. Down in Locust Hollow, Fanny and Fred make their way in this modern world. Today’s story: The Big Box Store!

Then we continue the journey of the Salisbury crew with another installment of Space Sentries: The Additional Lineage in The Vector Theorem!

SHOW NOTES

Inspired by comedy duo programs like Lum and Abner, we wanted to introduce characters portrayed by Jeff Savage and Jandi Hanna into our lineup of Junction characters.  The story was directly inspired by a trip I had to a store not unlike “Value Fun”. I walked home from the store and wrote out the story that day.

We also introduce the character of “Rich Cyr” which is wonderful because we also have Rich Cyr as a cast member of Nutmeg Junction. Having Rich jump in to the ad was a lot of fun and we have done more of this since. Rich has told me this is his favorite character to play!
