Hollering Place Radio Show

Tales of the Coos once more take the stage as the Dolphin Players present their Sixth Annual Hollering Place Radio Show, featuring a blend of new and favorite material taken from Tribal stories and local history.

Opening August 24 and running through September 2, the Hollering Place Radio Show brings stories from Coos County to life. Celebrating the rich history of the area, the show is produced with the cooperation of the Confederated Tribes of Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians and includes traditional Tribal music, pictures, and stories, as well as tales of early European settlers.

Directed by Kevin Gowrylow and Zoe Shields, The Hollering Place Radio Show uses a radio format with live sound effects. Performance times are 7:00 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2:00 pm Sundays. Tickets are $10, $8 for seniors and students, and $5 for children under 12. Saturday the 9th is Pay What You Can, when the ticket price is whatever fits your budget. The Dolphin Playhouse is at 580 Newmark in the Historic Empire District. Tickets will be available at the door, or for reservations, call (541) 808-2611 or go to the website at

Alice Carlson, who has directed all five of the Salutes, attributes the high number of repeat cast members from previous shows to the relaxed and collaborative atmosphere of the productions. “It’s Old Home Week at auditions and the first group rehearsals when the group reunites. Some of them haven’t seen each since the last Salute because we have performers from Little Theater as well as the Dolphins, and this is the only theater some of the group does. The singers are so supportive of each other and so excited to hear everyone else’s songs.” Individual songs are rehearsed for several weeks with Luanne May, who has been the musical director and accompanist for all the Musical Salutes, and group rehearsals are conducted the last two weeks before opening when choreographer Marcia Marchant, who has worked on all four Musical Salutes, goes to work on group numbers.

The production runs June 22 through July 1. Curtain time is 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students, and $5 for children. Saturday, June 23 is Pay What You Can, with admission by donation. Reservations may be made by calling 541-808-2611 or on the website, and tickets are usually available at the door. The Dolphin Playhouse is located at 580 Newmark, in the Historic Empire district of Coos Bay.
