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 7: "The Road to Murder!"
Written and Directed by Ryan Cassavaugh and Keith Suta!
In our glorious Season 5 finale, Keith and Ryan hog spotlight and forego story for jokes, as their loveable reoccurring characters: Keith and Ryan! This time, our hapless heroes have bumbled into a scam posing as world-famous condiment designers -- and they're crashing the dinner party of "Hickory" Chicory, the richest sauce magnate in the world! But Chicory is under threat of a buyout from international interests and then, just as everything seemed funny, a mysterious set of sounds is heard and Chicory is dead! Keith and Ryan have to solve the case while keeping their identities secret -- but that's too much plot for these season-ending shows, so it's mostly a collection of gags and silly sounds!
Featuring: Ryan Cassavaugh as Ryan; Keith Suta as Keith; Sadie Cassavaugh as Catherwood; Sarah Suta as Babette Molho; Leyla Kirschner as Himilsy Glossop; Richard Dunbar as "Hickory" Chicory; Ryan Lawrence Flynn as Bertram Chicory; and Harry Jahnke as Elias Kastike and Baldy the Eagle! Live Sound Effects performed by Kyle Suta!
Recorded live at Bozeman, Montana's Verge Theater on July 24, 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!
