The Wright Brothers First Flight (radio manuscript)
Script by John de Lancie and Nat Segaloff.

Cast: 2m. (4 m. or w.) Remember the good old days of radio—when people had to use their imaginations—when the mind was a stage? Those days are back—only better! You can SEE as well as HEAR radio programs. In 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made history with their first sustained flight over Kitty Hawk, N.C., in their heavier-than-air contraption nicknamed the Wright Flyer, now recognized as the first airplane. Who were Orville and Wilbur Wright, and what motivated them to attempt such a momentous feat, which guaranteed them a page in American history books forever? This 20-minute show is ideal for schools and competitions where varied cast sizes are preferred. Approximate Running Time: 25 minutes.

Some of the advantages to producing radio plays:

One Simple Set—A radio station—made up mostly of drapes, a control booth (if desired), mikes, and sound effects equipment.

Less Wardrobe—no changes of wardrobe are necessary.

Less Staging—actors simply stand at mikes most of the time.

Less Rehearsal—actors don't memorize lines—they just read them.

Fewer Cast Members—one actor plays many parts.

No Props—only scripts.

This title is in manuscript format. Upon licensing, a permission to photocopy form will be issued.
