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!

A Thrilling Adventure written and directed by Ryan Cassavaugh!
Presumed dead, but merely avoiding her humdrum existence back in England, Lady Victoria Ramsey always seems to find adventure! Or, more to the point, adventure always seems to find her! The Royal Geographical Society has tracked her down and brought her a mission she cannot refuse: finding Prince Leopold, lost on an expedition to the fabled Skull Island! Soon, she and a ragtag group of adventurers are off to the deepest jungle to rescue the prince, and confront its ancient god king!

Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Verge Theater on June 13, 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!
