WGTD Radio Theater takes show on road again for ‘The Kane Shadow Murder Mystery’

The WGTD Radio Theater will take its live performance on the road again, this time for “The Kane Shadow Murder Mystery” 11:15 a.m. Nov. 16 in front of a studio audience in the Frontier Room of Lake Lawn Resort, 2400 E. Geneva St., Delavan.

Returning for the fourth time in radio theater broadcasts is the character Orson Welles, portrayed by local actor John O’Leksy.

The broadcast is co-produced by Steve Brown and Mike Ullstrup.

A breakfast buffet will be served in the Frontier Room beginning at 9 a.m., and tickets for the breakfast and broadcast will be $20. The cost for attending the show only is $10, and those who choose this option should arrive by 10:45 a.m. Reservations can be made by calling Lake Lawn Resort at (262) 725-9155.

In the murder mystery production, Welles – otherwise known as the Kane Shadow – returns to his hometown, Kenosha, after another frustrating re-recording of a radio commercial in Chicago. While enjoying dinner at Ray Radigans, one of his favorite restaurants, three very attractive and identical triplet women approach him and ask for his help.

It would appear that a “friend” of theirs has gone missing and they fear the worst – murder. Their friend was last seen near Lake Lawn Resort in Delavan. Never able to resist the cries for help from attractive women, and knowing of the fine restaurants at the resort, Orson motors out to Delavan to investigate the matter. During his interviews of patrons and local people, he runs into, of all people, his grandmother.

After years of her harping at him for not finding legitimate work, she is the last person he wants to see.  But …could she actually be connected to the disappearance, he wonders?

In addition to this original and classic Jack Benny comedy, there will also be another installment of “It’s the Professor!!” Join the gang at Boca Del Rio - Phase 3 as they prepare for the upcoming holidays.
