Sheldon, Iowa — The Jay Shelp Community Theatre in Sheldon will take a step back in time this Saturday night when they present an old-time radio theatre production of “A Hometown Christmas”. This “radio play” will be performed at the Sheldon United Methodist Church, Saturday night from 7 to 8 pm, and will also be broadcast live on KIWA-FM 105.3.
Steve De Kok, of the Jay Shelp Community Theatre, says this is the first production of it’s type in northwest Iowa, and says the idea came about several years ago.
De Kok says the production’s format will be much like the old-fashioned radio shows that had entire families gathered around their living room radios decades ago.
He says tickets for Saturday night’s live performance will be available at the door.
De Kok says the tickets are priced to allow entire families to attend the performance without stretching the budget.
Saturday night’s Jay Shelp Community Theatre production of “A Hometown Christmas” will begin at 7pm in the sanctuary at Sheldon United Methodist Church, with doors to open at 6:30 Saturday evening. You’re encouraged to attend in person, but if that’s not possible, tune to KIWA-FM 105.3 for the live broadcast.
