News, events and doings surrounding the Icebox Radio Theater of International Falls, Minnesota.

Well, changes are afoot at the IBRT, and I’m making an Autumn resolution to make better use of this blog so everyone can keep better track of them (including me).

Those of you who are local know that maintaining a schedule of live productions was wearing me down. I added it up, and the theater has done 25 live shows in the last four years. Some were live-to-air, most were in a theater, but all were a lot of fun to do. Unfortunately, being both chef and cook, as it were, makes it difficult to maintain that pace. Add in the fact that artistically, live shows can only be so good (the one-take nature of live theater combined with limited rehearsal time make it so) and you can see where I might look to studio work as desirable.

Now there will be live shows in our future, just not the immediate future. And our studio schedule is started to shape up. We’re recording for ‘The Grump: An Ice Fishing Fantasy’ right now, and I have scripts for four new Dome Dogs ready to go. And there are studio projects in the works for both Christmas and Halloween.

That’s a general overview, more each and every week on this blog.
