Eastern New Mexico University is producing, performing, and recording an exciting new radio drama! As part of ENMU’s ongoing Theater of the Mind program, A Budding Connection will be performed for a live studio audience as well as recorded for download. The play is written and directed by student Amethyst Collins and stars an all-student cast.
A Budding Connection is a witty, dynamic romantic comedy examining serendipity and chance in love. The program follows four characters through one long day, allowing listeners to immerse themselves in the small details of a big change. Lead characters Janessa (Sara Maynerich) and Aiken (Ben Sanderson) fumble a chance meeting on a bustling city street… and can’t seem to forget each other. With the help of sassy pal Eva (Dale Landry) and flirtatious assistant Devon (Versia Hodges II) their paths intertwine in surprising ways.
Fans of theater and radio won’t want to miss this new twist on the classic tale of boy-meets-girl. The play will be performed live in ENMU’s “black box” at the end of October (date TBA) for a select studio audience. Downloadable audio files will be available November 1st right here on HoundBytes. The cast and crew invite you to follow along on Twitter (@enmuradiodrama) and Instagram (@enmuradiodrama) to watch the magic happen in real time!
