Upcoming Events
Join us at the Kiggins Theatre for the City Of Weird Event
April 26th, doors open at 6pm

What is Re-Imagined Radio?

Start with a 1936 theatre. Re-enact historic radio dramas complete with voice actors and Foley sound artists. Garnish with digital SFX, music, and visual backdrops. Overlay student digital interpretations of the base narrative. Invite a live audience to watch, eat popcorn, and participate via social media. The result: Re-Imagined Radio—storytelling as never before heard, or seen.


Otherworldly tales reinterpreted and performed as short radio dramas for a live audience. These Weird stories set in the Pacific Northwest capture the bizarre, fringe spirit of the region.

Performed by the Willamette Radio Workshop for one show only, $5.00 donations will be accepted at the door. The last performance sold out, so come early to guarantee a seat for City of Weird!"
