'Dragnet,' 'Popeye,' more for theater fundraiser posted on 01/01/2022

Kelly Lazenby, Artistic Director of the Nutz-n-Boltz Theater Company (NNB) in Boring, noted that choosing a selection of radio plays and more for the annual “In Front of the Philco” fundraiser can be an interesting process.

“It’s kind of tricky, because you don’t want it to be so unfamiliar,” she said, adding that the length of the pieces and the number of voices are also factors.

This year’s offerings, which will take place on the weekend of Jan. 28-30, include “Dragnet,” “Flash Gordon,” “My Favorite Husband” and “Popeye,” along with a selection of jingles, commercials and perhaps even a live musical number.

“They’re all either funny or else really super melodramatic,” Lazenby said. “There’s no in between, really.”

She added that in doing plays that were intended for a radio audience, it offers the opportunity to search out pieces that include some interesting sound effects – which is a good reason “Flash Gordon” is part of the performances.

“I like doing things like ray guns, rockets blasting off and stuff like that,” Lazenby said.

Each evening of performances will last less than two hours and will be appropriate for all ages. There will also be concessions available for purchase.

Lazenby hopes that the fundraiser can help pay for NNB’s upcoming spring productions: David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Fuddy Meers,” about a woman who wakes up each morning with no memory of yesterday, in March; and A.R. Gurney’s “The Dining Room,” about the experiences of a number of different families in the room that brings everyone together, the dining room, opening in May.

NNB’s “In Front of the Philco” fundraiser will be held Friday, Jan. 28 through Sunday, Jan. 30, at the Boring Grange, 27861 Grange Street in Boring.

Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $15. For more information, or to make reservations, call 503-593-1295 or visit nnbtheater.com.
