Have you ever wondered what storytelling was like before modern technology? See it come to life right before your eyes at The Tesla Stories Live Vintage Radio Theater Onstage. The show takes you back in time with vintage radio theater live and direct from 1944.
Since 2014, The Tesla City Stories has been delighting local audiences with monthly theater performances like no other. This local, original production was started right here in Portland, Oregon. It continues to grow in popularity with most shows selling out.
Local actors take the stage to perform live radio theater derived from the long-lost radio programs of Tesla Broadcasting Company. The shows cover sitcoms, thrillers, mysteries, romantic comedies with forays into westerns, sci-fi and horror. All performances are based in the fictional locale of Tesla City. It’s also never the same show twice.

The stories are always new and never repeated. This Black Friday Holiday Special has many surprises and delights for everyone as our biggest show of the year!
- First, we bring you an episode of “The Wilde Card Mysteries” – a detective show featuring affable, nearly always broke P.I. Jack Wilde. He’s a decent gumshoe with a silver tongue and an incurable itch for gambling; in fact it’s a toss-up which has caused more trouble for Jack – the cards or his mouth. But, no matter what hand he’s dealt, Jack gets the job done, often to the surprise of his old friend and sometime nemesis, TCPD captain “Dusty” Mankowitz.
- And then a laugh-filled episode of “Blevins to Betsy” – a romantic-comedy set in the world of radio. He’s Blevins DeBell, America’s favorite radio star. She’s Betsy Harper, small town girl and production assistant at the TBC. Their fortunes and hearts become entangled when Betsy steps into the figurative shoes of Blevins’s former co-star and wife, Joan DeBell. It’s a part neither of them expected to play, but the show must go on!
- And as always, another installment of “Nightingale of the Broken Heart” – the TBC’s daily afternoon soap opera. Follow the days of nurse Myra Nightingale as her life entwines with those of the staff and patients of Tesla City’s Blessed Heart Hospital, colloquially known by locals as “the Broken Heart.”
- Special musical guest: The Dickens Carolers
The show takes place at The Old Church Concert Hall, 1422 SW 11th Ave. in Portland. For more information and to buy tickets, visit The Tesla City Stories’ website.
