Vintage Hitchcock Play Debuts This Weekend At The Baldpate Key-thedral
Murder, explosions, spies, love, and other Alfred Hitchcock trademarks come to life this weekend and next on the Baldpate Inn Key-thedral stage. Enjoy the slightly off, laced with humor triple feature of Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play written by Joe Landry and presented by the Baldpate Inn and the Fine Arts Guild of the Rockies.
Vintage Hitchcock, a 1940s radio play of the master of suspense’s earlier films, includes The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps. Interspersed with vintage commercials, this entertaining triad recreates a serial killer’s nocturnal prowl for young lovelies, bold anarchy by way of devastating explosions, and a daring train and foot chase to thwart dangerous spies. Live sound effects and musical underscoring heighten the suspense and psychological tension that Hitchcock pioneered.
The cast, directed by Susan Henshaw, includes Estes Park’s very own talent: Michelle Taylor, Torae Reid, Mark Lorenz, Rene Moquin, Tony Jimenez, Rik Forschmiedt, and Michael Petri. Sound effects provided by Tom Oates, Kathy Littlejohn, and Lori Smith.
The Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play will be performed Friday (July 18th & 25th) and Saturday (July 19th & 26th) at 6:30 at the Baldpate Inn. Sunday (July 20th & 27th) performances at 2:30. Tickets are $15 and are available at the door or contact the Baldpate Inn (Events@BaldpateInn.com or 970-586-KEYS). Dinner and group packages also available.
Join us for an evening or afternoon of the unique, strange, sometimes troubling charm that made Hitchcock famous.
