This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: November 2019

Thank you for tuning in and spreading the word about Fantasy Faire Radio. In spite of the slings and arrows of outrageous grid instabilities, we are very proud of the rebroadcasts of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”, and the live broadcast of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde.”  Special thanks goes to CeeJay Writer and Seanchai Library for hosting listening parties for the October 19th and 20th events.

There are no special events scheduled for November (which tends to fly by at light speed anyhow). Plans are in the works for both December and possibly January.  Stay tuned (and see below)! Continue reading This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: November 2019

ABOUT: “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”

Broadcast Live from Pixeltrix in Second Life ®FINAL JnH_Album_Cover

Sunday, October 27, 2019

The novella, by Robert Louis Stevenson, was adapted for radio and live performance in seven voices by Caledonia Skytower and David Abbot.

 

PERFORMERS/CHARACTERS:

CORWYN ALLEN: Gabriel John Utterson

Utterson is a lawyer and close loyal friend of Jekyll and Lanyon for many years, as far back as University. He is a measured and at all times emotionless, bachelor – who nonetheless seems believable, trustworthy, tolerant of the faults of others, and indeed genuinely likable. He does not partake in gossip or other views of the upper class out of respect for his fellow man.

ELRIK MERLIN: Narration / Inspector Newcomen / & Richard Enfield.

Enfield is Utterson’s cousin and is a well known “man about town.” He first sees Hyde at about three in the morning in an episode that is well documented as Hyde is running over a little girl. He is the person who mentions to Utterson the actual personality of Jekyll’s friend, Hyde. He says that Hyde is disgusting looking but finds himself stumped when asked to describe the man. Newcomen is a police inspector.

DA5ID ABBOT & KAYDEN OCONNELL: Dr Henry Jekyll & Mr Edward Hyde:

Jekyll is a “large, well-made, smooth-faced man of fifty with something of a slyish cast”. He has spent a great part of his life trying to repress evil urges that were not fitting for a man of his stature. He creates a serum, or potion, in an attempt to separate this hidden evil from his personality. In doing so, Jekyll transformed into the smaller, younger, cruel, remorseless, evil Hyde. Jekyll has many friends and an amiable personality, but as Hyde, he becomes mysterious and violent. Jekyll remains the natural composite of his good and ill natures.  Hyde is entirely evil.

THIS SUNDAY:“The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” comes to Fantasy Faire Radio

It was just a year ago that Fantasy Faire Radio and Seanchai Library (proud sponsors of FFR) engaged in a joint venture in radio drama to spice up the station’s off-Faire season for listeners and Faire fans.  That resulted in a radio drama adaptation of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein” which was re-broadcast this past weekend.  Well, Fantasy Faire Radio is not done with October just yet.

FINAL JnH_Album_CoverOn Sunday, October 27th at 2pm slt/Pacific, FFR and the Library team up again to present Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, in a new adaptation for radio and live performance in seven voices. The 90-minute presentation will take place live at Pixeltrix – home of the creators of the “Octoberville” and “Wicked Winter” interactive experiences. Pixeltrix is a community that enthusiastically celebrates the holidays, and especially the spirit of Halloween.

FANTASY FAIRE RADIO SAYS “THANK YOU!”

 

Two years ago, Fantasy Faire Radio moved from being an annual event radio station running only during the Faire, to year-round broadcasting in cooperation with our media partner, Radio Riel.  It has taken a lot more than a will and a playlist to make this shift possible for a volunteer-run station. It’s required DJs, production, sponsors, and most of all listeners.  

Fantasy Faire Radio provides music and special programs for listeners in over 100 countries monthly. We invite you to come and celebrate, and let us say, “Thank you” for helping us make this vision a reality.

This Month on Fantasy Faire Radio: July 2019

Night-Fantastic-poster

Welcome to Summer!

June was a terrific month for Fantasy Faire Radio. Our first live broadcast event of the season, A Midsummer Night’s Dream – Live at LEA 2 was standing room only at the performance site, and had the highest listenership of any other broadcast event in the entire month.  Likewise, the three broadcasts of the Fairelands Players presentation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream were very well received: Fantasy Faire Radio listenership peaked in the 40s and mid 60s on the two days it was broadcast.

As we move through the summer this month, we will be presenting a single event: our opportunity to say “thank you” to everyone who has supported the evolution of Fantasy Faire Radio from annual event station to year-round broadcast proposition: listeners, sponsors, and supporters of all kinds. We are grateful to Belladaine Nightfire and Dark Moon, owners of The Elven Forest, who have graciously agreed to let us visit their realm for this event.

Mark your calendars and join us:
