On Our Stages...
Get to Know Us...
                   For more information on the reading group please contact Roger Ault at 302-226-1118.

The group's second mission is to relive the “Golden Age of Radio” by presenting to the public staged readings of “Old Time Radio” shows including Fibber McGee and Molly, Our Miss Brooks and The Bickersons, as well as dramatic material.

Ad Hoc is always busy rehearsing and presenting shows that make it a real touring repertory company. We create the atmosphere of a network broadcasting studio, complete with microphones, sound effects and transcribed music along with the original commercials. One of the troupe, Nita Gary, has become an expert in creating sound effects. Seeing her in action is always a treat for the audience. The group also adds comical readings and skits.

Ad Hoc Touring Co.
Founded in 1996, Possum Point Players’ Ad Hoc Touring Company is the brainchild of the late David Palmer. Its mission is double pronged: First, to read aloud scripts from Broadway, classical plays and radio plays. The public is invited and all attendants can take part in the readings, giving everyone a chance to “strut their stuff.” The group tackles everything from Chekov to old time radio shows.

PPP’s Ad Hoc reading group meets on the first Monday of each month at 7:00p in Possum Hall.
