The War of the Worlds is the famous H.G. Wells radio drama that scared America's radio audiences on Halloween eve in 1938. The stirring voice of Orson Welles brought the Martians right into everyone's parlor and created havoc on the roads and in local neighborhoods, as well as in the press. The FCC changed several rules as a result of this show.
We will recreate the mystery and fright with live-action sound effects and snappy dialogue. Performances will be at the Coronado Community Center in Hot Springs Village on July 11, 12, 13.
Directing this production will be Glenn Calloway, who directed our Old Time Radio Show last year. Glenn came to us from California where he starred in many plays and coached Hollywood actors. For the performances at the Coronado Community Center in Hot Springs Village, we are reviving the "round table" audience seating and will be serving refreshments prior to curtain time.
