Arts Radio Network Radio Theatre

A uniquely American art form.

From The Mercury Theatre to A Prairie Home Companion, the radio play is a uniquely American art form, and one of this country’s most beloved. During the 1930s through 50s, live performances of plays broadcast over the radio were a part of everyday life. The Arts Radio Network Theatre Project is a unique combination of the nostalgia of classic radio drama, and the excitement of a live theatrical performance.

ARNTP also works with local organizations to present radio plays for, and with, students from elementary to high school.  Contact John Watts at to learn more about our educational outreach.

ARNTP partnered with WLRN, South Florida’s public radio station, to create WLRN Radio Theater – a monthly series of radio plays performed at venues throughout South Florida, and broadcast on WLRN on the second Sunday of each month at 7:00 p.m for two years.  This collaboration will expand in 2018 through a Knight Foundation challenge grant.
