Written by Walton Jones, this comedy follows struggling New York radio station W.O.V. during it’s final broadcast before Christmas in 1942 when anything that can go wrong just might. Filled with music and dancing from the era, this holiday themed production is a great way to kick off the holiday season!

Gibson, Diego Cruz (senior) as Neal Tilden, Emily Birosak (junior) as Ann Collier, Lilah Vener (junior) as Geneva Lee Brown, and Isaiah Stacy-Sutton (sophomore) as Biff Baker.

“This is the first time in recent CHS history that we’ve staged a play where the setting takes place during the holiday season,” according to CHS Drama teacher and director Chris Irvin.

“I first became aware of 1940s Radio Hour when I was a freshman in high school. Having the opportunity to produce and direct this show has brought back a lot of memories. The cast is incredible and they are having a blast with the material.”

General admission is $10; students, military personnel, and seniors 55+ are admitted for $9; and students with Associated Student Body cards are admitted for $8.

Tickets are available online at, at the CHS bookkeeping office during school hours, and at the theatre box office before each performance.
