return to the golden age of theatre and radio
Be transported back to the golden age of cinema and radio as Scott Harrison plays Kingston City Hall’s Wurlitzer theatre organ followed by Lux Radio Theatre’s acclaimed production of the classic radio playThe Mystery of a Hansom Cab.
Set in the 18th century St Kilda mansion of the exclusive Melbourne Club, the criminal haunts of Little Bourke Street and a horse drawn hansom cab, The Mystery of a Hansom Cab was first performed at the Arts Centre, Melbourne almost 20 years ago beginning our love affair with these beautifully crafted live recreations of the halcyon days of radio.
Featuring acclaimed actors James Wright, Simon Russell (We Will Rock You), Lucy Gransbury (Godspell) and directed by Don MacKay, The Mystery of a Hansom Cab will delight and intrigue with its unexpected plot twists and colourful references to late 19th century Victoria.
Join Kingston Arts, Scott Harrison and the cast of Lux Radio Theatre for this fantastic two hour double bill in the grand surrounds of the Kingston City Hall in Moorabbin this October.
Proudly supported by the City of Kingston Community Engagement Team as part of the Kingston Seniors Festival.
