DuBois, PA – Because they couldn’t have a live audience this year, the drama students at DuBois Area High School had to get really creative this year in a way that frankly as radio people, we love! They’ve have recorded three old-time radio shows.
Listen to our DuBois Area High School Drama Club perform a radio broadcast play of Zero Hour, a suspenseful story by sci-fi author Ray Bradbury about aliens invading earth. When young kids start playing a game called Invasion, is it real or fantasy? And can adults ever learn to recreate the childhood magic of a little imagination?
Listen on 96.7 and 99.7 Connect FM or at connectradio.fm from 10 until 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 19.
Brought to us by the DuBois HS Drama Club and Biggie’s Quality Meats.
Zero Hour, a radio play written by Ray Bradbury, as performed by the DuBois Area High School 2020 Drama Club. Before and after the performance, there are interviews with some of the students and drama club director, Dorothea Hackett.
The shows are:
- Our Miss Brooks (a story about puppy love)
- Three and One is an Awful Date (which is a romance)
- Ray Bradbury’s Zero Hour (a story of suspense)
The shows include foley (sound effects) and radio ads in the old-school style.
These plays will be posted on the DAHS drama website and Instagram pages on Dec. 4.
CLICK HERE to see the website where the audio for the plays will be available.
Our Connect FM radio station will air each play separately on, one of Dec. 12, another on the 19th, and finally on Dec. 26, all of which are Saturdays.
Since the admission to the DAHS one-act plays would usually be a canned good for the local food pantry, it’s been a challenge to collect as many donations this year. Please show our DuBois drama club students your support by listening to these radio plays and giving generously by dropping off as many non-perishable food items to the DuBois Area High School as you can.
