RRCA Continues to Cast Celebrity Talent in "Anne Manx and the Ring of Minotour"

(Saddle Brook, NJ) – The Radio Repertory Company of America’s current science fiction audio epic, “Lives of the Cat,” has proven so successful, it has spawned a sequel titled, “Anne Manx and the Ring of Minotour.” “Babylon 5” stars Claudia Christian and Patricia Tallman are back to recreate their roles from the first show, and Alexandra Tydings, best known as Aphrodite from the popular syndicated television shows “Hercules” and “Xena,” has joined the cast.

"Lives of the Cat" is an original, feature length audio “movie” that revolves around intergalactic space cop, Anne Manx, portrayed by Claudia Christian (Susan Ivanova from “Babylon 5”). In chasing down a couple of two-bit burglars, Manx is killed, but strangely comes back to life. Patricia Tallman (B5’s Lyta Alexander) plays the evil cop Jean Richmond, who is the mastermind of the murder plot to kill Manx.

The sequel, “Anne Manx and the Ring of Minotour,” brings Alexandra Tydings into the RRCA fold as archaeologist Charlotte Miller who is searching for the mythological ring that brings its wearer immortality.

The Radio Repertory Company of America’s first venture into feature length science fiction came back in 1998 when the company produced “Flight of the Bumble Bee,” which starred “Star Trek: Next Generation” star, Marina Sirtis (Deana Troi). RRCA first used celebrity talent a year earlier, when Katey Sagal, famous for her portrayal of Peg Bundy in the long running Fox television hit, “Married With Children,” starred in an episode from an earlier RRCA series, “Stealer of Souls.”

The Saddle Brook, NJ based audio producer created its first series, “Garson Krebs: Private Eye,” in 1994. The series was broadcast on National Public Radio during the 1995-96 season. Subsequent shows have been aired on radio stations all around the world.

RRCA recently licensed its programs to XM Satellite Radio, which will be broadcast in 2003. Its shows can also be purchased at all major book seller stores and web sites.
