Radio-drama scripts, music & sound effects from RuyaSonic

Radio-plays are uniquely suited for remote productions as part of distance-learning classes or in-person, social-distanced ensemble performances—both of which can be recorded for distribution via broadcast, Zoom, or other web-based platforms. I DO license on-demand downloads, with no restrictions as to what platform (your website, YouTube, etc.)

OVERVIEW: I am a professional radio drama playwright and performer--having done over 2500 shows (on-air, on-stage, in-studio) since the late 1990s. This page lists my radio and stage-plays that troupes can license for production--for stage, broadcast, classrooms, recordings, churches, workshops, and fundraisers. I charge a traditional royalty-per-performance.

My RuyaSonic radio plays and stage-plays have been produced by Hollywood stars, professional actors, and troupes at community theaters, colleges, high-schools, middle-schools, grade schools, churches, and even family productions. Radio dramas are especially well-suited to fundraisers--as they don't require memorization, extensive rehearsals, props or costumes. The scripts are appropriate for all ages--nothing too "cutesy" or too racy. Think: Mark Twain or H.G. Wells.

TO ORDER: Contact me at and explain about your troupe, venue, and how many performances of whichever play you are interested in. I will reply with full details, including how to pay. You can have RuyaSonic scripts, music, and sound effects tracks within hours.

Tony Palermo's Radio-play Scripts - (several also have stage-play versions)

My scripts employ from 6 to 18 actors and from 2-4 sound effects artists. Radio drama roles can easily be doubled, so they are well-suited for small troupes and educational uses. My plays are written to distribute the dialogue between many characters, because it's not much fun to be "spear carrier" on radio. These shows are suitable for audiences and actors aged 9 to 90, but the dialogue and situations have not been "dumbed down" for children. Check out my script sample PDFs below to see for yourself.

My scripts, musical underscore tracks, and sound design collections have been used by the Museum of Television & Radio, the United Nations FPA program around the world, by Hollywood stars, touring companies, community troupes, college, high school, and grammar students, senior-citizens, and church groups. 

NOTE: Fundraiser events are ideal for radio-style productions. There's no need for memorization or extensive rehearsals. I offer shows of varying lengths, to accommodate such programs and single-class-period rehearsals.
