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!

1901: Divinia von Presterton and Lord Tiberius Q. Braithwaite are assisting their friend, Nikola Tesla, in his latest experiment -- beaming messages into space! Unfortunately, the recipients found the messages a little TOO inviting. Soon, someone has landed in New Jersey and only Divinia holds the key to saving humankind -- or so says renowned psychic Victoria Woodhull! To save the day, she will need the help of her father (though he's only a brain in a jar), Tesla, Tiberius, and re-zombified Benjamin Franklin to save the Earth from invaders from Mars!

Braithwaite; Ryan Lawrence Flynn as Nikola Tesla and Benjamin Franklin; Sadie Cassavaugh as Victoria Woodhull and Carrie Nation; Christian McDaniel as Henry Ford, Preston von Presterton, and the Martian; and Keith Suta as Thomas Edison and Mr. Announcer!
