Old Time Radio Broadcast Styled Show at the Morris Museum’s Bickford Theatre this Winter

Fireside Mystery Theatre will bring an old styled radio variety show to the Morris Museum this winter. “An Afternoon of Holiday Haunts” will be performed live on the Bickford Theatre stage on Sunday, December 4 at 3:00PM.

Enjoy a thrilling radio drama specially spiced for the holidays. Fireside Mystery Theatre, a popular New York City-based live variety show and podcast, features original radio dramas, live musical performance and comedy sketches. Think "Prairie Home Companion" meets "The Twilight Zone." The performance will include a special guest appearance and demonstration by one of the automata (mechanical musical figures) from the Murtogh D. Guinness Collection at the Morris Museum. The show is geared towards audiences of all ages.

About Fireside Mystery Theatre

Fireside Mystery Theatre (FMT) is a motley assortment of actors, writers, musicians, and technicians united by one common goal: to take your darkest fears and put them in your ears. This twisted take on the old styled radio variety show was created by Gustavo Rodriguez and Ali Silva in 2011. The show is performed monthly and recorded live at The Slipper Room in New York City. FMT's scarifying stock company of actors is helmed by Ali Silva and has featured performances by Allison Guinn, James Rieser, Courtenay Gillean Cholovich, Brian Wallace, Michael Pate, Anabelle Rollinson, Alain LaForest, Daniel Graves, and Lauren Elder. FMT was the subject of a featured piece in The Daily News in 2014 and was voted one of the Top 10 Podcasts in NYC by Untapped Cities alongside "This American Life" and "The Moth."
