The Crosley Radio Players will kick off their 2018 season Feb. 9 in the Wabash Activity Center at Fifth and Poplar streets in Terre Haute.

The Crosley show will feature an episode of “Suspense,” which was the most repeated radio drama of all time: “Sorry, Wrong Number.”

The chilling story, written by well-known sci-fi author Lucille Fletcher, tells the tale of a woman who overhears a conversation about murder, and tries to stop it. First broadcast in 1943, the show was repeated seven more times, the last in 1960. It was done live each time, and starred Agnes Moorehead in the leading role.

The story would go on to spawn a feature-length motion picture in 1948, and 40 years later, a made-for-TV movie.

The players will round out their 80-minute show with an episode of “Your Hit Parade,” a Saturday night fixture on radio for decades, and an episode of the beloved comedy, “Fibber McGee and Molly.”

Doors will open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 and refreshments after the show.

Tickets are available at the center. Admission is $10, and proceeds go to help the center fix broken water piping.
