This holiday season, step inside the studio of a 1940s live-radio broadcast as Frostburg State University’s department of theater and dance and WFWM 91.9 FM Public Radio host a production of “World War II Radio Christmas.”

Directed by Mairzy Yost-Rushton, performances will take place in the F. Perry Smith Studio Theatre of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center Dec. 1 and 2 and Dec. 7 through 9 at 7:30 p.m., with matinee performances Dec. 3 and 9 at 2 p.m.

In this “heart-warming and family-friendly production,” fun jingles, live sound effects and period songs fill the airwaves between moving, true-life stories of male and female soldiers and the families and communities affected by their absence. Sponsored by Vaseline Hair Tonic and Ipana Toothpaste — as well as FSU’s own WFWM Public Radio — “World War II Radio Christmas” reminds everyone of the importance of coming together for the holidays.

“World War II Radio Christmas” is recommended for ages 6 and older.
