Centralcasting presents The Son of West Branch and Sixty-Six Trips to Lansing, by Will Anderson

In this special double-feature, award-winning audio playwright Will Anderson presents a tribute to former US President Herbert Hoover.

THE SON OF WEST BRANCH: AMERICA'S GREAT HUMANITARIAN

The Son of West Branch: America’s Great Humanitarian is an historic dramatization looking at the pivotal moments of Herbert Hoover’s life from his early childhood up to the eve of the 1928 presidential election. It was written by Anderson during an artist residency at the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site in 2008. This performance, which stars Phil Proctor (of The Firesign Theatre) as Herbert Hoover, was recorded in front of a live audience of about 200 by the National Audio Theatre Festivals in July 2011 and received an Award of Excellence in the 2012 Broadcast Education Association Festival of Media Arts.

SIXTY-SIX TRIPS TO LANSING

Inspired by the popular acclaim for the musical "Hamilton," this short comedy script follows the efforts of a professor attempting to get funding for a presidential-rock-musical based on the life of Herbert Hoover. This piece was recorded by actors in isolation during the 2020 pandemic lockdown and assembled in post. Sixty-Six Trips to Lansing was awarded a silver listening award by the National Audio Theatre Festivals at their 2021 Hear Now: Audio Fiction and Arts Festival.
