    About this Play

    The performance featured here is a special preview of Our Story's future stage presentation to be held August 20, 2022 at the Black Box Theater in the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Center, Midland, Pennsylvania. 



    This is the inaugural production of The Genesis Collective's Community Theatre Project--an innovative initiative designed to support the dramatic arts in Beaver County by creatively revealing and showcasing the voices and stories of our time and in our communities. 



    Our Story: A Play for Beaver County Voices does just that.  The subjects, incidents, characters, and dialogue are all based on actual interviews and recorded conversations with Beaver Countians--our friends, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  We make no apologies for the sometimes uncomfortable truths borne out by these lived experiences. We stand by our sources and lift up their voices and stories from the marginalized shadows, where far too many of us would rather they stay "out of sight, out of mind," as our play's Maggie Kowalski says.  These stories are bad for business, bad for attracting new investment.  What town wants to damage their reputation by talking about . . . food insecurity, homelessness, human trafficking, or the psychological traumas brought on by the Pandemic? 



    These Beaver County stories make us wince, naturally.  But we can't ignore them.  Only then can we meaningfully address the issues facing us today and with hope and possibility transform our communities--our entire county--into a better place to be. 



    Ars vitam meliorem facit -- art makes life better.

    Rodney Pell: Apples of Gold Radio Theater









    On episode 21 of the TSVP Radio Theater Podcast, we talk with Rodney Pell, producer and sound engineer for the Apples of Gold radio theater company in Huntington, West Virginia.
    The show traces its origin to Rodney's uncle, Bill Webb, who started out broadcasting a weekly devotional AM radio program nearly 50 years ago in Charleston, West Virginia.  Bill teamed up with his brother Danny Webb and together they started performing live theater plays of Christmas-themed scripts, which were followed by a devotion. After Bill died in 2013,  Danny continued recording old-time style radio shows which he distributed to area nursing homes.  The plays involve friends, family, coworkers, physicians, or whomever Danny can wrangle to sit in and read. Currently Rodney is marking his third year producing and engineering Danny's shows, as well as performing a wide range of acting duties as necessary.  Apples of Gold productions can be heard on WCHS AM radio broadcasting from Charleston, West Virginia starting the first Friday after Thanksgiving (Black Friday).
