NUTMEG JUNCTION LIVE: 4/27/2019 (7:30PM) CENTER ON MAIN IN FALLS VILLAGE CT

Nutmeg Junction will perform our first full live production of three complete episodes of our old time radio style audio theater show with 8 unique scripts (7 never before heard on the program) involving some of the most beloved Junction characters on Saturday 4/27/2019 at 7:30pm at the Center on Main, 103 Main Street, Falls Village, CT.

It’s been an amazing journey just to get to this point.

Nutmeg Junction is recorded at WAPJ, Torrington Community radio station and it airs on 14 stations in 4 states and online. Starting the program out was an adventure. The first three episodes were recorded on one night at the end of January, 2018. The studio was abuzz with excitement and activity.  An early concept for the show included not just an audio theater portion of the show but also a musical component and interview portion so Belle of the Fall and Elizabeth Victoria were in the studio to perform and guests State Rep Michelle Cook and Rich Cyr were there. By this time, Rich Cyr had already been invited to join our cast so he had the rare distinction of being a special guest and cast member.  Quality photos by LSG Original Photography captured the moment. The evening captured some extraordinary performances and we learned from the experience as we moved forward.

With these episodes recorded and subsequently edited, we had the “proof of concept” to submit to radio stations including WAPJ. WAPJ and the Robin Hood Radio Network which included multiple stations, wanted the show and had a timeslot for it. On March 31st, 2018 11am the Nutmeg Junction show aired on the Robin Hood Radio network and on April 1, 2018, the program aired on WAPJ.

At the beginning days of the show one of the formative ideas was to eventually perform the show live at least once that year and then do “more” in 2019.  We achieved the initial goal when we performed live on December 2nd 2018 as part of the SpeakEasy program, where we would be the featured “speakers” among many speakers that night for the Poetry/Spoken word event. We performed an Inspector Trompe-Loeil story, a Space Sentries story and an original script called “Thoughts Before Brunch”. It was a lot of fun to do and this spurred more interest to do a full live production of Nutmeg Junction.

It’s an interesting  challenge to produce a live production; it’s certainly very different from the creation of an in-studio recording. Being a part of the SpeakEasy event was a wonderful experience because our role was to show up and perform and we had unique stories no one had yet heard. We did promote the show and there was an article in the paper and there were opportunities to talk about it on the air and the end result was that the evening was the largest turn out for the SpeakEasy event they had had for the year. Still on the whole, our focus was on the performance itself and we enjoyed the opportunity to present stories in front of an audience.

Many old time radio programs were performed in front of a studio audience and there’s something extraordinary about the immediate feedback on the material. And some modern examples of this consistent audio theater in front of a live audience includes the formerly titled “Prairie Home Companion” and the LA Based “Thrilling Adventure Hour”. But both of these shows were performed in large cities with other beneficial factors unique to their shows built in, specifically national recognition of the show and/or the stars who performed on the show. But for us in 2019, one night a year to be directly producing a show is perfect. Once again we’re doing 3 episodes, just like we did in January, but this time it’s for an audience, and it’s live!

We are performing at The Center on Main. It’s a wonderful theater in the heart of a picture-perfect community of Falls Village.

I enjoyed the opportunity to talk about our upcoming 4/27 live show in a number outlets including Denver Underground radio with fellow Nutmeg Junction-eer Kurt Boucher.

Here’s the audio!

we had a wonderful spot on KBJB radio

Here’s the audio!

I enjoyed a wonderful conversation with Marshall Miles on Robin hood radio

Here’s the link!

Robin Hood Radio interview with J. Timothy Quirk

I enjoyed a wonderful interview with Barrie Soucy (audio to be uploaded soon).

I also enjoyed talking with Jacque Williams on the feel good show (sadly it wasn’t recorded!)

And an interview with Shaw on his podcast Shaw and Tell!

As the day approaches, I’m looking forward to sharing these fun stories and the exceptional vocal talent of the voice actors on the show with the audience.  The event will be a benefit for the Lee H. Kellogg School (all donations will be for the benefit of the school).

This is the only planned live event we will produce as a specific Nutmeg Junction show so it is a very special engagement. We encourage all to come and support the show, support the Lee H. Kellogg School and enjoy quality entertainment on 4/27/2019 at 7;30pm at the Center on Main in Falls Village, CT!

SHOW NOTES

IMG_3963 (2)

One of the original ideas for Nutmeg Junction that I had yet to write was the Theatre Detective, a Detective that played in to the Theatre tropes of backstage shenanigans. with puns galore.

I finally had the opportunity to write the script and put, if not every Shakespeare pun, certainly everyone I could think of.

IMG_3944 (2)

We then continued the story of Space Sentries. I asked which actors would be available and then tailored the second part of the story to include those characters.

Episode 210: Professor A in “Dean of Death Part 1 of 2”

Nutmeg Junction: New Old Time Radio Show 2019 In Season 2 Episode 10 (air date 3/30/2019) Professor A: Adjunct Professor to the Multi-verse receives an assignment to track down Dean Hewland, the “Dean of Death”.  A beacon from the pod that Hewland had previously used has been activated on a deserted planet Earth in a time line very close to the PRIME time line. Is Hewland still alive and if not, who has activated the beacon?

PROF DEAN OF DEATH1 (2)

SHOW NOTES

There are no photos during the recording of this episode as we recorded the Space Sentries story first. The Dean of Death is a two part story and Kurt Boucher had to record his lines remotely and Tiffy McKay recorded her narration remotely so when we recorded this story, we focused on the recording aspect only.

Jeff Savage appears as a character in part two of the story.

In this episode we present the first part of a ‘noir” inspired narrative “Harriet Holmes and the Sleep of Angels.  This story is a departure from our usual lighthearted fare.

The story was intended to be a three chapter arc but we found that one of the key actors in the story, Nick Bourne who portrays Congressman Jack Vindle, will be pursuing theater in the city that never sleeps (and we’re rooting for him!) so we will share the part two of the story next week.

SHOW NOTES

This episode was a send up of Agatha Christie’s work, most notably a certain French speaking detective matched with an “And Then There Were None” set up.

The concept was initially conceived for our actors who would be available for a live show which will occur this Sunday 12/2/2018. Just as we recorded “Thoughts Before Brunch” with three members of the cast, this piece would feature other members of the cast. This live event at the SpeakEasy on Dec. 2nd would then be the precursor to a full live show in February and then a gala event in April, our first anniversary as a radio show/audio theater company.

TROMPE

I also wanted to write these characters and “try them out” because I planned to write a script for Connecticut’s The Lipstick Project (CT) for their company to record our New Years Eve episode, that would be our first joint venture with another theater company. I wanted Trompe-loeil and Quosonnt to be the featured characters for that New Years Eve story.

So after writing this script, I did write a Trompe-Loeil full episode mystery entitled “Three Hours to Midnight” that  is a New Years Eve mystery that takes place at a jazz supper club called “Nothing But Treble” and that will be recorded in mid December and will air as the last show of the year for us.

I was feeling under the weather and so I did not take numerous photos in the recording studio but Kurt Boucher took some extraordinary photos with the green screen and I could not imagine a more fun promo-title card for the characters.
I’m going to hold most of those photos back so that we can use them when we return to those characters again with OUR cast.

Additionally Lana Peck, who has been cast in an upcoming Warner Stage Company production of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’ was able to record the narration and then a separate poem I had written, or transcribed really, based on my cat Sunshine’s unhappiness upon finding food late to the bowl and then, horrors of all horrors, the food was a new brand.

Episode 17: Professor A: Chapter Five: Borrower of the Night

PROFESSOR A TEAM

Professor A‘s adventures continue in Chapter Five: Borrower of the Night!   Professor A and Ms. Gentry escape to the planet of an alien world in a mini-universe while Dr. Robere remains imprisoned in the “Welcome Center”,distracting the guard, “Officer Funston” for as long as he can.

 

SHOW NOTES

We continue the story of this multi-episodic Professor A adventure. Last week’s episode of Nutmeg Junction was Chapter Four and it ended on a cliff hanger. So does this episode!

IMG_6266

The premise was established in Chapter Four-that the Uni-Ones came from a different universe and took over this world and began extracting its natural resources and then restricted all access to it from anyone else who tries to visit through the dimensional corridor.

In this episode we learn more from the native inhabitants of the world how the current state came to be.

IMG_6268 (2)

Our principals (Lana Peck as Professor A, Kurt Boucher as Dr. Robere and Tiffy McKay as Ms. Gentry) return and they are joined by David Robinson, Conrad Sienkiewicz and Olivia Wadsworth.

IMG_6269 (2)

Olivia was not  present at the time of the original recording so Tiffy provided two voices, Ms. Gentry’s and B1067. We recorded Olivia after we had edited the show for radio release so there are actually two versions of this episode, the one with Tiffy playing B1067 and one with Olivia portraying the character. As the character will continue in the storyline, we’ve updated/edited the show with Olivia’s voice but Tiffy’s voice is preserved in case we do a “making-of” episode at some point!

IMG_6394 (2)

IMG_6274 (2)

David Robinson joins us for the first time and portrays “Bearnard (Bear) Sable/C9359).. Robinson is no stranger to stage and screen, and he was most recently in The Post (2017)

IMG_6277 (2)

Conrad directs the episode and returns as a voice actor for the neighbor role which is nice because Conrad and I are neighbors in real life too!  Conrad will lend his voice to a Harriet Holmes episode within the next few weeks.

Episode 11: THE SEARCH FOR THE LOST EPISODE (PART ONE)

EPISODE 11 LOST EPISODE

SHOW NOTES:

IMG_5933 (2)

As it was mentioned in Episode 5, we had worked on three chapters of the Professor A: Adjunct Professor to the Multi-verse saga and of course we had the intention to do more. But I found when I edited the show that it sounded best with the chapters at approximately 15 minutes in length (at least for the first two) so we had an extra chapter recorded but not shared with our audience yet.

IMG_5883 (2)

Secondly, when Olivia Wadsworth came on board I had pitched to her the idea for HER character to be Harriet Holmes. It’s always been my intention for each actor to have a signature role. Some actors may have more than one but I’d like each actor to have episodes where their character is the star. Anyway at the time I envisioned a London tale of Harriet being an actual sibling to Sherlock but found that the tv show SHERLOCK had already put out a story where there was a sister character for Sherlock and it would have seemed too derivative if I tried that too, no matter how I played it.

IMG_5885 (2)

But as it turned out I also wanted to do a tough as nails Detective character. I have many uses for that character and certainly hard boiled detectives are so ubiquitous in Old Time Radio I’ll have many detectives on the show voiced by many different actors.

IMG_5896 (2)

Ok, and here’s the thing. I wrote the detective story, finding the lost episode of Nutmeg Junction with a detective without a name. I wasn’t sure what we would call her.

IMG_5898 (2)

I wrote the opening soliloquy the night before recording and posted it on facebook. This helped Olivia work on and find the voice for the recording session. I finished the story the following day, which was the day of recording, with the final pass  completed 15 minutes before i left for the radio station.  It’s a tight script that flows very well and there’s very little (if anything at all) I’d change about it.

IMG_5899 (2)

I cast Jack Sheedy in the role of Lenny Snitchwell. Jack is a writer, an author and editor of a newspaper (Catholic Transcript), and the idea of an “English Major” is a call back to another show that for many years carried the torch of Old Time Radio. Jandi reprises her role of Nonna Hanna.

While we were at the table read, we discussed the fact that the detective didn’t have a name. I believe it was either Jandi or Olivia who brought up the idea of Harriet Holmes. i can not take credit for that at all. But the name fit perfectly and I asked Olivia if she wanted the detective character to be called that. She did.

IMG_5904

So that’s how we have Harriet Holmes as a “modern” private eye, not beholden to any Sherlock but understood on her own terms.

Jack did a remarkable job as “Lenny”. He knew the character instantly and gave the right flourish.

IMG_5924 (2)

The Professor Episode was a lot of fun. This one felt had a lot of comedy thanks to all of the actors in the cast. Everyone has a good line or two including Josh and Jandi as the two humans: Freddie and Alice (which they performed in a cockney accent).

There is only one slight editing mistake I missed in this portion of the show but I will fix it in future editions of the show.

Listeners can expect MORE of Harriet Holmes (she will undoubtedly return in Search for the lost episode part two, and more of the Professor. I plan to have scripts written and recorded this month.

Episode 10: Serendip-History

IMG_5414 (2)
Serendip-History  Nutmeg Junction recorded two episodes on this day. The cast from left to right is Joel Benson, Josh Newey, David Macharelli, Kurt Boucher, Jandi Hanna, Conrad Sienkiewicz, Olivia Wadsworth, Robert C. Fullerton

 

This story features the vocal talent of Olivia Wadsworth and David Macharelli who portray two strangers who meet on the trolley and together they find they share much more than a destination.

Within the program are two stories featuring the incomparable Josh Newey as Washington Irving, who gifts to the listening audience the best performance of a fictional Washington Irving ever produced on radio.

IMG_5401 (2)

David Macharelli’s ad-lib as  Charles Dickens to Newey’s Washington Irving, “You put the Ass in Amb-ASS-adore” was enormously popular in the recording studio but we opted not to have that in the broadcast of the show.  Perhaps a later version may include it!

IMG_5403 (2)

IMG_5399 (2)

Directed by Conrad Sienkiewicz, this episode was rehearsed once at Trinity Episcopal Church and then again before recording the episode.

Rich Cyr was at the rehearsal but could not be at studio on the recording date so we recorded his work separately a day earlier. As a production note, Cyr had studied how Edgar Allan Poe probably sounded with research via youtube videos but during the rehearsal was informed that the author had written the role with Cyr’s own voice in mind.

34413097_1259466277520019_476235444183367680_n

Quirk performed Cyr’s role during the main recording session and reversed the process when recording Cyr alone, then edited the two recordings together.

Jandi Hanna took on dual roles as the prim and proper Alice Dare-Crook (there was discussion on the name of this narrator character. I considered a George Plympton reference but we settled with an Alistair Cooke one.

There are too many references to count for the Dickens/Irving interaction. yes, Washington Irving had a brother Ebenezer who had a shop that burned. i can’t help but think that Bracebridge hall actually did have an inspiration for Dickens for the Christmas Carol. Barnaby Rudge was a work that wasn’t exactly a barn burner for Dickens. References to Great Expectations, Hard Times, Bleak House, etc are all in there as well as many references involving Christmas Carol.

For the Poe story, the idea of “Helen” at Sunnyside came from the idea of wanting Poe to get the idea of Lenore for The Raven but didn’t want it obvious at the beginning. Researching Irving just a little i did find a relative named Helen who may have lived in western part of New York so I justified it that way. The idea of being hard of hearing so someone can hear the LEN sound more than the HE” in Helen sound worked for me.

IMG_5408 (2)
Fans of Poe will recognize all the references from “The philosophy of Furniture”, “Three Sundays in a Week”, obviously the Murders in the Rue Morgue (and if you haven’t read it, there’s an additional pun in how we referenced it.

Poe actually did write to Washington Irving who responded in writing.

I see no evidence they actually met in person but Poe was a mysterious figure and he didn’t live so far away that such a trip would be out of the question so I like the fable aspect of this meeting.

A “star” of this program is the music by Robert C. Fullerton. He recorded the song twice, once with vocals and instrument and once just instrumental. Then I used the instrumental underneath the two characters (Kristen and Steve) as a musical emphasis which I think was a rather special aspect of this program.

Episode 9: Nutmeg Junction Sampler

This week Nutmeg Junction joined WESU Middletown radio. This is the first station to take on our show on since our premiere episode on 3/31/2018 (on Robin hood radio four affiliated stations WHDD) and 4/1 (WAPJ) and CROC radio.

So this is the show that can be seen a good introduction into our universe.  If you haven’t heard our program before, this is a great episode to start with”.  We have three stories in this episode: The Grey Whisper (featuring Jandi Hanna), Daring Darling Darly (featuring Caroline Sienkiewicz) and A Case of a Little Light Murder (featuring Lana Peck and Kurt Boucher).  These stories have wonderful vocals from Josh Newey, Robert C Fullerton, Conrad Sienkiewicz and Rich Cyr.

Now I had originally considered having The Professor story in this segment but the Professor stories are approximately 15minutes so wouldn’t fit into a three section show. I considered Space Sentries and Tex Bijou but both are shows that benefit from the entire show listening experience.

These stories generally have everyone in our cast in the shows (except for Olivia who began recording with us after these episodes.

“THIS EPISODE IS A GREAT PLACE TO START FOR NEW LISTENERS”
