Fall is here and that means it’s time once again for Lend Me an Ear, our 17th annual union fundraiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank!
As you know, our entertainment industry has been TURNED ON ITS EAR as a result of the pandemic, so our future for this year’s event was uncertain. But we are happy to report that instead of staging the show at our usual venue, the Shakespeare Tavern, the Atlanta Union Radio Players are headed online for a one-off live videotelephonic performance of The Best of Lend Me an Ear, Monday, Nov. 23, 2020 at 8 p.m.!
It’s an evening of past audience pleasers with such humorous classics as BABY SNOOKS AND DADDY, comedians RED SKELTON, FRED ALLEN, and JUDY CANOVA, the suspenseful LIGHTS OUT with the chilling tale “The Dark,” and, of course, those great sound effects and priceless commercials. All online with easy access remotely and for an important cause, the ACFB.
AUDITIONS: Monday, October 12, 1-7 p.m. via Zoom
