The Lone Ranger Rides Again!

The Adirondacks will once again be home to radio drama when the Lone Ranger saddles up with Tonto and takes to the radio theatre setting.

Gem*Radio Theatre will present “The Lone Ranger” as a radio drama August 27, 28, September 9 and 11, at four classic theaters in the Central Adirondacks. Under the direction of Hannah Jay, the audience will watch a theatrical production that is staged as a live radio broadcast for the mythical radio station of WADK.

Actors will step to the microphone to play multiple parts, while the ‘foley artist’ (sound effect masters) create sounds that will make you believe the man of justice is on the stage. Using only their imagination and found items (of coconuts, belt straps and other household items) the crew of Gem*Radio Theatre will take the audience back to the days when families sat around the Philco 90 to enjoy ‘theatre of the mind.’

The masked man believed: “That all things change but truth, and that truth alone, lives on forever.” Such is true for radio and virtue.
It will not be hard to imagine a fiery horse with a speed of light, a cloud of dust, and a hearty, “Hi Yo Silver” through this production of “The Lone Ranger”.

The show recreates the magic of radio (not to be confused with the many failed movie attempts). This will be going back to the source that mesmerized radio listeners in the 1930’s. The production will include several episodes of The Lone Ranger from the golden days of radio when good triumphed over evil. Included is the original first episode with “Bad Man’s Revenge” and “Footlights on the Frontier.”

With his faithful companion Tonto, the daring and resourceful masked rider leads the fight for law and order.  Return to radio station WADK and experience thrilling tales of the old west as the Lone Ranger fights for truth and justice. This family entertainment will appeal to the memories of grandma and grandpa as well as to the imagination of a child.
Many in the Adirondacks will remember the holiday performance of “It’s a Wonderful Life,” that the same cast of Adirondack characters presented last winter. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see how a theatre can transform into the wild west.

Mon. August 10, 2015

Location:          Ski Bowl Park, North Creek, NY 12853
Time:      Check-in will begin at 8am on the 10th.  Please print this form and have it ready the day of the event, along with the $25 per person/ $150 per team registration fee.  Registration closes at 10am and the competition will begin at 11am.  Teams will be starting at 20-minute intervals, so you will be assigned a start time at the registration table.
What to Bring:    This event is meant to encourage the development of whitewater safety skills.  Although the course is on flat water and land, competitors are expected to wear appropriate river attire (i.e- helmets, PFDs and close toed shoes).  You will also need a two throw bags per team, a 14’ raft and paddles.
Course:    There will be a course walk through at 10:30 am.  Expect to carry your raft long distances over uneven terrain in between stations.  Please come with prior knowledge of single-shore foot entrapments, coil tosses with throw bags and set-up of Z-drags with a redirect.  We want to prevent teams from overlapping on the course as much as possible, so prior knowledge is a must.  We will provide all materials (rope, pulleys and carabiners) for the Z-drag.
Awards:    There will be an awards ceremony after all teams have finished.  The overall fastest team will go home with the grand prize and smaller prizes will be awarded to second and third place teams.  There will be a raft Tug O’ War with consolation prizes after the main event for any interested teams.
Post-event:    Following the awards ceremony, there will be food available from Izzy’s Market and Deli, local vendors and live music by the Backporch Society.  There will also be a 50-50 raffle, dunk booth and other family friendly activities.  Spectators and non-guides are welcome
