POULSBO, WA – West Sound Academy Theatre Company brings the works of Alfred Hitchcock to life in Joe Landry’s Vintage Hitchcock: Live Radio Play, directed by Gretchen Nordleaf. Performances will take place on December 2, 3, and 4, 2021 in the WSA Commons. Curtain is at 7 PM for all performances. 

In WSA Theatre’s production of “Vintage Hitchcock,” Art Deco gild and glamour meet the hurly-burly, hilarious realities of producing a live studio-show. Witness the romance, suspense and thrill of three of Alfred Hitchcock’s early films, “The Lodger,” “Sabotage” and “The 39 Steps,” exploding to life through the magic of on-stage foley sound effects and nostalgia-drenched spectacle in this 1940’s style live radio show.

Spies, murder, love and other trademarks of Hitchcock come to life in the style of a radio broadcast, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a hair-raising train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence and a disastrous explosion through implementation of live sound effects.

Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a unique opportunity for the audience member to experience the thrill of Hitchcock alongside the excitement of seeing behind the scenes of a ‘live radio show,’” Nordleaf said. “From live sound effects to actors performing multiple accents and dialects, the cast of Vintage Hitchcock is sure to surprise even seasoned theatre audiences. ‘Vintage Hitchcock’ requires theatre artists to rethink how storytelling works on stage and WSA Theatre Company is excited to meet that challenge.”

The ensemble of “Vintage Hitchcock” is composed of several WSA students including seniors Ezra Osburn and Lars Love, junior Maddie Prasch, sophomores Abi Parks and Arlea Forbes-Prater, freshmen students Joelle Schmidtzinsky, Kieran Merrifield-Peterman, Lucy Schmitt, Lollie Wines, and 8th grader Alex Prasch.

The behind the scenes artists include Genna Johnson as the Student Director for the production and the Director of The Lodger. Our Costume designer is Nascha Martinez. The lighting tech is Andrew Corbo. Sound design and effects by Abi Parks and members of the company. Lena Bowen is the stage manager and Heide Duer is the assistant stage manager.
