About

TradRad sm logo feathered

With the multiple 2016 Emmy nominations for Fox Network's "Grease Live" and NBC's highly successful Christmas musicals generating over 87 million viewers, TradRad Pictures has developed original musicals built primarily around American Holidays for live-on-stage production and broadcast. 

Using a cost-effective business model that minimizes risk, targets particular niche networks/online delivery systems and optimizes our partner's ROI, TradRad Pictures only goes into production when it can achieve a combination of network licensees, international television sales, state and local production subsidies (Texas passed one in 2009) and other incentives such as DVD, CD and download sales to fully cover production costs.

Our concern is for our investors financial well-being and TradRad Pictures will use all future revenue sources to insure first monies are paid to them. This includes certain unconventional resources not usually associated with standard theatrical productions. 

We spend years developing scripts, refining musical arrangements and holding multiple table readings with talented actors to arrive at an exciting, entertaining and polished finished product. TradRad Pictures seeks partners who love musicals with the vision to see the potential in our distinctive idea.
