Twilight Radio Theatre presents its tribute to the hard-boiled detectives of Old Time Radio. Of all the genres of radio drama nothing is quite so memorable as the cracking-wise of the ground-breaking sleuths of the wireless. The slang of those gritty gumshoes is legendary; spitting out more metaphors and similes than a fledgling poet at a Shakespeare convention.

On April 19 and 20, T.R.T. will perform three back-to-back mysteries. Candy Matson and Pat Novak will whet your appetite for intrigue like a dark alley begs for a crime, but Murder Will Out will draw the audience in like a barker at a carnival side-show. Each night, three members of our studio audience will be invited to try to unravel the clues as they watch the show; ultimately matching wits with their fellow contestants to compete for prizes. 

And just when you thought things couldn’t get any more exciting…Twilight Radio Theatre is thrilled to announce the debut of our newest cast member, the incomparable Adam Kerby. Although Adam is new to Gabriola, by now most islanders know him as one half of Mad For Joy. What you didn’t know is that he is a graduate of both the Vancouver Film School and the VCC School of Music. Adam is not only an exceptional voice-over artist, but a gifted singer, multi-instrumentalist and music teacher as well. So there! TRT is over the moon to have him.

With all of this fun afoot, the Surf Lodge is bound to be packed like Robert’s Place during a power outage, so we urge you to race to get your tickets like you are trying to catch a Monday morning ferry on a summer long weekend.
