KIRO Radio’s Halloween Special
Experience a Live Radio Performance of Agatha Christie’s “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.”
On October 26th at 8 p.m. tune in to KIRO Radio for a special Halloween show presented by Museum of Glass, Seattle Radio Theatre and Town Hall Seattle. Listen as your favorite voices depict the eerie story of the 1939 Orson Welles’ version of Agatha Christies, “The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.” Using the original script presented by CBS on KIRO more than 80 years ago, this story will re-create a spooky murder mystery. Featuring live sound effects creating a creepy mood, the action will unfold across the airwaves in the “theatre of the mind.”
Voices include Dave Ross, John Curley, Colleen O’Brien, Ursula Reutin, Gee Scott, Chris Sullivan, Aaron Granillo, Lisa Brooks, and KIRO 7 TV’s Nick Allard.
This event is presented in connection with René Lalique: Art Deco Gems from the Steven and Roslyn Shulman Collection, on view now at Museum of Glass. The artwork of René Lalique helped to define the Art Deco movement in the early twentieth century, a time that produced a staggering proliferation of literary talent that contributes to how we interpret and understand Lalique’s art today. These voices share varying perspectives on an extraordinary time, which saw the emergence of the suffragettes, the rise of fascism and the Nazi Party, continuing racism, wild hedonism, the buildup and then catastrophic collapse of the stock market, a world-wide pandemic, and the continuing fall-out and recovery from World War I.
