This event will be an exciting mix of old-time radio drama, original scripts, and adaptations from well-known authors. With comedy, drama, intellectual skits, unusual sound effects and dynamic onstage movement, the program is sure to delight the audience.

The performance will include a glimpse of the drama of the working-class heroine and beautiful daughter of an impoverished farmhand who married above her station in life, Stella Dallas. One of the most successful and longest running radio programs, Stella Dallas (1937-1955), was created by the husband and wife team of Frank and Anne Hummert.

Anne Elstner Matthews, who operated the River's Edge restaurant in Lambertville until 1973 with her husband, was the voice of Stella Dallas and a member of Lambertville's Kalmia Club.

This event has been organized by Hunterdon Radio Theatre and the Kalmia Club. The Lambertville Station is donating the venue and crudités. A cash bar will be available. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to local charities.
