The Kablooey Group’s all original holiday musical returns December 14, 15, & 16 at Shilling Auditorium!

WSOY/NowDecatur again broadcasting portion of opening night live

We are very excited to announce that our “Merry Ol’ Radio Holiday Show” will return for another three night run December 14, 15, & 16, 2017 at 7pm in Shilling Auditorium– complete with a newly revised script that promises more heart, more fun, and two brand new toe-tapping tunes!

Additionally, our media partners WSOY and NowDecatur will once again broadcast our hour-long radio show-within-a-show LIVE on WSOY (1340AM/103.3FM) Thursday, December 14th at 8pm, as well as live-stream it on NowDecatur.com.

With the style and feel of a classic Golden Age Hollywood musical and featuring over a dozen original songs, including several infectious Christmas numbers, “A Merry Ol’ Radio Holiday Show” earned high praise and demands of do it again next year from our enthusiastically receptive crowds; not to mention the incredible reception we received from the live broadcast of “The Merry Ol’ Radio Hour,” the hour-long Prairie Home Companion-esque radio program that serves as our Act Two. We couldn’t be happier to be bringing this show back– and with the entire original cast and crew returning!

Check out the videos below for a taste, and be sure to join us December 14, 15, & 16 for “A Merry Ol’ Radio Holiday Show,” starring Jayson Albright, Jerry Johnson, Sue Powell, Rachel Roettger, Sally Schepper, Steve Schepper, and Mitchell VanZant! Featuring Doug Nicholson, Dick Borders, and Lavelle Peete as the Jimmy Denton Trio; with Janet Patterson and Doug Bishop!

The Show

In the midst of falling ratings and an uncertainty about its future, the Beaumont Merry Ol’ Radio Hour prepares to say goodbye to broadcast legend Andy “The Kid” Phillips, whose final show sets in motion a series of awakenings for his fellow performers that could potentially lead to a revitalized program.

Featuring the full, hourlong radio program that serves as the Kid’s final appearance, “A Merry Ol’ Radio Holiday Show” is a story full of heart and humor centered around the holidays for a toe-tapping night of music and merriment!

Our network of creative allies is vast, but every Kablooey project begins with the core trio of Jay, Jerry, and Rachel, who together are responsible for a plethora of award-winning and crowd/client-pleasing projects spanning theatre, film, television, music, and beyond. They are producers, performers, writers, directors; skilled in brand development, strategic planning, marketing, advertising, and promotion; artists, illustrators, designers, builders, and a whole host of additionals and etceteras. They are passionate about the Arts and deliver quality, story-driven creative time again, no matter the size or scope of the project.

Here they are in action, along with Kablooey’s Music Director Doug Nicholson, in support of our cabaret performed in June of ’16. A great example of our ability to quickly turn around a fun and effective piece of promotion!
