Who We Are
American Radio Theater (ART) is a non-profit (501c3) organization devoted to promoting the creative art and technical craft of audio theater.
Preserving the Past
We give lost stories from the days of Old Time Radio (OTR) a new voice, as many radio shows no longer have recordings.
ART's ongoing project to re-create lost episodes of The Great Gildersleeve can be found here.

Promoting the Future
We write, and present new radio plays, using traditional radio production techniques as exemplified by radio networks in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.
In an effort to remain close to the roots of OTR we frequently invite members of our extended family of Old Time Radio veterans to participate in our productions. These individuals bring with them skills, techniques, experiences and perspectives unique to this art form.
Through public education, participation, performance, and scholarship we strive to create a new tradition of audio theater while staying true to the roots of Radio Theater's past.
