Prometheus Radio TheatrePrometheus Radio Theatre wishes everyone happy holidays with a three-part Christmas story, airing Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve and Three Kings’ Day. 

It’s Christmas Eve aboard the Titan, and Metcalfe is reflecting on Christmases past with his little sister Lydia, now deceased but recreated as the animate personality of Titan’s computer.  The Arbiters’ latest mission precludes holiday cheer, however.  Taking its name from a Pagan legend, the Wild Hunt is a terrorist faction that’s destroying hospitals on a utopian colony world.  But this is the Arbiters, so nothing is going to be as it seems! The full Arbiters cast returns as Prometheus kicks off a new series of hour-long SF dramas in its award-winning flagship series.

Prometheus Radio Theatre: Night Train Through Maco

Prometheus Radio TheatreAfter months of single-voice readings, Prometheus Radio Theatre returns this week to what it does best: full-cast audio drama.  “Night Train Through Maco” is a post-Hallowe’en treat I based on a ghost story from my family’s home state, North Carolina.  For over a hundred years, travelers in the area of Maco Station reported seeing a light hovering over the railroad tracks near a swamp where a terrible crash had killed a conductor named Joe Baldwin.  In this short dramatization, we work in a little Southern history and a little turn-of-the-century (that’s the 20th Century!) melodrama, as a young couple on the run are pursued by her murderous suitor, and haunted by the conductor’s ghost.   Heather Scheeler and Ethan Wilson turned out some very lively and believable performances for this, and we really had an opportunity to let sound tell a story as we moved through runaway train cars, swamps, and dark and stormy nights.
