Last year Danny Boyd’s cult-classic movie, Paradise Park, was adapted into a musical by Danny and Larry Groce, and was presented by Theatre West Virginia. Tuesday on Curtain Call Mel Larch brackets a show about musicals that are based on movies with two songs from the recently-released cast recording (which you can buy HERE).   Wednesday afternoon on The AIR, you can tune in as Curtain Call presents “Movies Go To The Musicals”  You can listen at the website, or on this embedded radio player…

At 3 PM Mel Larch presents a new hour of great musical theater on Curtain Call.  Movies have been used as the inspiration for musicals for decades, and this week Mel brings you examples of some of the best, and takes the occasion to bring you two tracks from the musical adaptation of the West Virginia cult film, Paradise Park.Mel provides background and trivia on each song and brings you a mix of big hits and obscure curiosities.
