Written by Mark Vierthaler and directed by Ed Bethea, Gunsmoke: On the Air is an original live radio production featuring Matt Dillon, Miss Kitty and many other favorite characters of the show.

"This show takes two famous Gunsmoke scenes and puts it together like a live radio show from the 1950’s," Brandi Young with the Depot Theater said. "We have voice actors who voice Miss Kitty, Matt Dillon, Doc Holiday, and many more, as well as two actors who make most of the sound effects live on stage."

Gunsmoke: On the Air will be on Friday, July 26 at 7:30 p.m., Saturday, July 27 at 2 p.m., and another Saturday show at 7:30 p.m.

The performances will be held in the Homestead Theater (the smaller building to the east of the Depot).

Tickets are $25 for anyone 19 and older and $20 for anyone 18 and under.

"Watch how the sound effects are made, how actors 'personify' different characters, or just close your eyes and imagine you are listening to the whole show on your radio," the tagline says.
