Episode 1 – Radio Theatre in the 21st Century

Jim Nellis has combined his experience with Microsoft and Apple with a commitment to community service. He has been involved with Entity Theatre since 2005 in just about every conceivable theatre role – actor, producer, and director. In this episode, he talks about the challenges and rewards of recreating radio drama in a modern theatre group.

Jim raised the idea in 2019 that there was still a place for radio theatre today – and proceeded to prove the point with a very successful rebroadcast of It’s a Wonderful Life. It was an easy choice to begin our podcast series with the topic Radio Theatre in the 21st Century!

It was his vision that Entity’s WNTT Radio Theatre could be a delightful source of entertainment and his passionate leadership that made it possible. His next production will be The Dark, a broadcast of several scary stories perfectly suited to the ghosts and goblins of Halloween.
