To commemorate the 147th anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg, SIRIUS/XM Book Radio will present CRT's 1999 mini-series, GETTYSBURG.
"This is a high quality, digitally recorded production features top-notch actors and music... a great selection for Civil War buffs... and students." - Elaine Hanson - BOOKLIST.
" The sound effects are good, the narration clear and crisp, the various voices even better ...an endless spectacle of blood and dust and insects and carnage. That's what the war itself was like, of course. Here are the fatigue, the despair, the pain, the screams, the deafening cannon plowing through human ranks, death, and dismemberment. Sometimes the politicians are heard. More often the generals and officers and foot soldiers. One would swear that a newspaper reporter with cassette recorder in hand was dashing around the battlefield in the thick of it" - AudioFile
In the tradition of classic radio plays, with a full cast, music and sound effects. The Colonial Radio Theatre On The Air is proud to present this spectacular three part production - "Gettysburg."

COOL NEWS! CRT will have the honor of bringing William F. Nolan's LOGAN'S RUN - LAST DAY - to audio! Based on the classic book by Mr. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson, we are very excited to get the chance to bring this incredible story to life with a full cast, full music score, and a couple of hundred thousand sound effects!
LOGAN'S RUN - FINAL DAY depicts a dystopic ageist future society in which both population and the consumption of resources are maintained in equilibrium by requiring the death of everyone reaching a particular age. The story follows the actions of Logan, a Sandman charged with enforcing the rule, as he tracks down and kills citizens who "run" from society's lethal demand — only to end up "running" himself.
CRT will produce the show in association with Bluewater Productions.
