By May 22, 2017 Announcement!

KZMU’s original live radio drama, Downtown Abbey Season Two, is an official selection of the HEAR Now Festival of Audio Fiction and Arts, to be held in Kansas City June 8-11. Program Director Christy Williams will attend the festival to present Episode One during a listening session, and answer questions about its production. The musical drama was written by KZMU manager Marty Durlin, and was brought to life by a local group of actors and crew members, ranging in age from 6 to 70. The entire season was performed live at Star Hall in February and aired in episodes on KZMU in March.

HEAR Now is the audio equivalent of a film festival for fans, performers and producers of contemporary audio story-telling in all its forms: live and scripted solo performances, multi-voiced performance, classic radio drama, experimental narrative, and much more.

The four-day Festival offers a multi-faceted program showcasing the many forms of audio fiction and sound art story-telling in theaters and other “listening” venues. HEAR Now presents audio fiction programs that exemplify traditions of craftsmanship, as well as aesthetic and technological innovation. For more information, see
