Don't Close Your Eyes: Live Radio Theatre!
About This Show
Don't Close Your Eyes is Montana's longest-running and most-popular live radio theatre presentation! Each week during the summer, writer/directors Ryan Cassavaugh and Keith Suta take turns writing and presenting a brand-new one-hour play in a variety of genres from the golden age of radio! Since 2011, DCYE has produced weekly radio plays all summer long at Bozeman's Verge Theater!
Each new play is written in just one week previous in order to recreate the vibrant energy and demands of live radio! The genres are as wide-ranging as the schedule is tight: sci-fi, comedy, western, thriller, comedy, and more!
Presented live on stage with multi-voiced casts and entirely analog sound effects, DCYE is a unique and original anthology production that the whole family can enjoy!

Season 5, Episode 1: "The Not-So-Great Zambronski!"
A Sleight-of-Heart Comedy written and directed by Keith Suta!
Maria Tura has had enough -- relegated to the thankless role of "lovely assistant" to her unappreciative and philandering husband Joseph, she quits the act and her marriage and strikes off to become "The Great Zambronski" in her own right. She can make up the tricks, but there's never been a sucessful female stage illusionist before -- while she and Joseph flounder as solos, Maria meets Fey, a skittish and awkward young woman who possesses REAL MAGIC. Convincing Fey to be her lovely assistant, Maria tricks an audience like never before -- and soon she will win the coveted Golden Wand Competition of stage magicians! But will it turn her into the very thing she left in the first place?
Featuring: Sadie Cassavaugh as The Great Zambronski, Jenny Everygirl, and the Wife; Todd Hoberecht as The Great Zambronski, Colonel Desiccant, and the Husband; Sarah Suta as Fey; Pol Llovet as the Stage Manager, Carmen, Morty, Fteven, Sir, Emulso, and Wah; and Keith Suta as the Geezer, Sigurd, and Mr. Announcer! Sound effects performed by Wren Goodman and Kyle Suta!
Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Verge Theater on June 7, 2015! What you hear is what the audience heard with no overdubs and minimal post-production on volume to try to make it comfortable to your ears! All sound effects were analog and executed live by our fantastic performers!
