Many of us are too young to remember the golden age of radio plays. Families used to gather around the radio to listen to their favorite shows; The Shadow, Boston Blackie, The Saint, and of course, The Stage Series. The Stage Series, was, for many years, the flagship program of the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)
From the archives of the CBC, Scenario productions is pleased to present the historic Stage Series radio plays 1946-1966, together with the long-forgotten memento of CBC's war-time effort; the 1942 Special Presentation of Nazi Eyes on Canada; Starring Orson Welles, Helen Hayes and Vincent Price.
The Stage Series spawned and launched the acting careers of such notables as Lorne Greene, Christopher Plummer, John Drainie, Barry Morse, John Colicos, William Shatner and James Doohan.
In their day, the Stage Series actors were called "...the best radio repertory company in North America..." by New York Times Radio Editor, Jack Gould. The Stage Series is comprised of wonderful adaptation from classic novels, together with excellent Canadian works.
CBC Radio Plays are great for Listening to on the road or at the cottage and are excellent for classroom curriculum support.
