The Rise of Radio Dramas in the Theater Community

As theaters have closed due to the pandemic, radio has become another popular alternative and a way to share dramatic works with audiences across the globe. 

Those looking for additional exposure and another way to engage in theater besides Zoom or live-streaming should look towards getting their plays on the radio platform! Audio has become an increasingly favored form of entertainment in quarantine, providing needed breaks from screen and reading time. 

Radio allows for increased accessibility, which also leads to increased exposure for you. While Zoom readings or live-stream performances are a great way to create an interactive experience for those you wish to share your work with, radio publicizes your work even further, ensuring that your work is shared with new audiences.
