The Golden Age of Radio may be long gone, but it's still hilarious—and now, you can watch as well as listen. The Willamette Radio Workshop, a Portland group that performs old-time radio scripts live on stage—complete with special audio effects and other theatrical magic—will bring a comedy showcase called "Laugh Your Dial Off" to downtown Vancouver's Kiggins Theatre at 7 p.m. Sept. 27. In addition to snappy, silly material from the likes of Jack Benny, Fibber McGee and Molly, Abbot and Costello and W.C. Fields, there'll be genuine radio commercials of the day—"so true and yet so funny," according to Re-Imagined Radio, a project at Washington State University Vancouver that brings these performances to the Kiggins. Doors open at 6 p.m. Sept. 27 at 1101 Main Street, Vancouver. Suggestion donation is $5. Visit www.kigginstheatre.net/events/re-imagined-radio.
