Turned in to the '20s



August 19, 1999|By J. Wynn Rousuck

Don't touch that dial! Totem Pole Playhouse, the summer theater just outside Gettysburg, Pa., is wrapping up its 49th season with the musical "Radio Gals," written by Mike Craver and Mark Hardwick, creators of the off-Broadway hit "Oil City Symphony."

Set in the 1920s, "Radio Gals" focuses on a retired Arkansas music teacher and her homespun -- and illegal -- radio station, WGAL. The score includes 21 1920s-inspired tunes, performed by a cast that features Craver as well as Emily Mikesell, a veteran of the original New York production.

Totem Pole Playhouse is at 9555 Golf Course Road, Caledonia State Park, 15 miles west of Gettysburg. Show times are 8 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays, through Aug. 29. Tickets are $19-$27. Call 717-352-2164.
