Announcing auditions for Lend Me an Ear for all paid-up SAG-AFTRA and AEA Atlanta Members

The Atlanta Union Radio Players present another fun night of Old Time Radio as a fundraiser for the Atlanta Community Food Bank. This year's program is Lend Me an Ear's Sweet 16th and includes the 1948 pilot episode of Father Knows Best, which spent 5 years on radio before moving to TV; then get ready for A Date with Judy. Will Aunt Lily get her man? Next up, The Unexpected, with a story aptly titled Sweet 16 - but with a twist! And the evening ends with The Aldrich Family, the archetypical juvenile program that spawned many others.

The actual event will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21 at The Shakespeare Tavern (located at 499 Peachtree Street NE). Evening rehearsals will be on Monday, Oct. 7 and Monday, Oct. 14 at the Tavern as well on the day of the event. Call times will vary and attendance will not be required for the entire final day.
