‘The Maltese Falcon’ Lands at Burt Reynolds Institute

Improv Showcase.2 small

Master actors will take the stage June 9 at the Burt Reynolds Institute.

Master actors from the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theatre will reenact The Maltese Falcon in much the same way it was presented during the golden age of radio. The Airplayz

Using specially designed props and some traditional and not-so-traditional devices for sound effects, the performers will bring to life those days when radio was the dominant form of entertainment. And, to add to the fun, the audience will become part of the show. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. June 9.

The Maltese Falcon, written in 1930, by Dashiell Hammett, is considered by many critics to be one of the finest radio dramas ever presented. The popularity of Hammett’s main character, Sam Spade, endures today.

The evening will be hosted and directed by award-winning actor Gordon McConnell, an instructor at BRIFT. McConnell’s career has taken him from Los Angeles to London to Amersterdam to New York City and, eventually, to South Florida, where his performances have earned him the prestigious Carbonell Award.

Tickets are $15. For information, call (561) 385-1584.
