Santa Claus Conquers the Martians streams LIVE this Friday and Saturday!

This Friday the 4th at 8pm and Saturday the 5th at 2pm, PMRP will be streaming our fourth annual radio-drama adaptation of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians live on YouTube! In our original adaptation of that 1964 Christmas classic film, Martians, concerned that their children are bored and listless and don’t want to do anything but watch Earth television programs, kidnap Santa Claus (and a couple of unlucky Earth children) from Earth and bring him to Mars to make toys so their children can be kids again. Can Santa get back to Earth in time for Christmas? Are the children of Mars doomed to a joyless life of food pills and machine-implanted learning? Is that terrifying, huge polar bear going to eat our young heroes? Find out for yourself this weekend!

Friday’s 7pm performance will stream at:
Saturday’s 2pm matinée performance will stream at:

Gender-Swapped Star Trek streaming this Saturday at 8pm on YouTube!

On November 14 at 8:00pm ET, the Post-Meridian Radio Players will reprise the Gender-Swapped Star Trek episode we performed at the Arisia science-fiction convention in January, “By Any Other Name” live on YouTube!

In this episode, the crew of the Enterprise is captured by aliens set on reaching the Andromeda galaxy. It is up to Kirk and her officers to stop them, even if only with their wits — and Scotty’s liquor cabinet.

Join us on an adventure through space — going where no woman has gone before!

Our virtual reprise will be live on November 14th at 8pm, streaming via YouTube Save the date — we look forward to entertaining you! For more information (including the cast and crew), see the event’s page here.

Listen to “The Silver Shade: Help from the Shadows”

She seeks out justice where others cannot go; she is the Silver Shade. The Post Meridian Radio Players presents an homage to the pulp adventure series of the golden age of radio. High school teacher Penelope Umberson has a super power she keeps hidden from the world, but when a student comes to her for help when a parent is framed for murder, she must learn to use her ability to set things right.

At the Boskone science-fiction conference in pre-lockdown February of this year, PMRP performed an original superhero drama in the style of the Golden Age of Radio, “The Silver Shade: Help from the Shadows”, and you can now listen to it online (or download it) for free here!

Plan 8 and Plan 9 POSTPONED due to the pandemic

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone what was to be our spring show, Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Plan 8 from the Outer Ether. While the show will not be performed in April as scheduled, it will be performed at a later date! (We are considering some options, including our usual Halloween slot later this year.)

Stay safe, and we hope you look forward to watching Plan 8 and Plan 9 when we perform them.

Congratulations to our casts!

Congratulations to the cast of PMRP’s spring show, Plan 9 from Outer Space, with Plan 8 from the Outer Ether, going up in April, and to the cast of our latest studio recording project, “The Renegotiation”, which will be released as an audio download!
