Long Beach Home Companion Returns to the “Airwaves” for 4th Year
2014-05-22 · By Editor
For the fourth year, politicians, community leaders and actors will gather at the offices of Keesal, Young and Logan to tell stories about Long Beach politics, culture and newsmakers. Tongues firmly in cheek, our Political Players promise to reveal the real truth about all that is happening in town.
Gazette Executive Editor, Harry Saltzgaver writes a hilarious script, complete with sound effects and bad puns. It’s performed by the Long Beach Political Players, who this year are: Gov. George Deukmejian, Evan Anderson Braude, Kay Cofield, Doug Haubert, Betty Karnette, Carl Kemp, Kraig Kojian, Gigi Fusco Meese, Michelle Molina, Patrick O’Donnellm Susan Wise and Mitchell Nunn. Sound effects “art-fully” delivered by Foley Artist extraordinaire, Art Levine. Harry’s script will be rousing and provocative and the ad libs fast and furious. Anything can happen!
In addition to the Radio Show, the acclaimed Keesal, Young and Logan chef offers a bounty of scrumptious appetizers to satisfy even the pickiest foodie. On your way to the buffet is KYL’s gracious bartender.
The Radio Show is a fundraiser for the Playhouse and a truly unique event. Tickets are $85, a modest price for the chance to hang out with the city’s movers and shakers, eat great food and have a drink at the hosted bar. And it all takes place in a room with a breathtaking view of the harbor. And, as if that weren’t enough, there will be opportunity drawings for many great prizes.
Tickets are limited; call the Playhouse box office at 562-494-1014 X 1 to purchase yours today. If not sold out, tickets will be sold at the event.
All proceeds support the productions and programs of the Long Beach Playhouse including plays of all types, collaborative productions, comedy nights, guest lecturers, regionally recognized youth and adult education programs and the internationally acclaimed New Works Festival.
