ENCELADUS THEATRE COMPANY ANNOUNCES SUMMER RADIO PLAY WAR OF THE WORLDS, ADAPTED BY JOE LANDRY

 

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***

WHITTIER, CA – MAY 10, 2019  – An alien invasion throws humanity into chaos in the classic sci-fi novel The War of the Worlds--but all it took to cause real-life panic in the streets was Orson Welles's 1938 radio adaptation, which listeners took for news. Now, the WBFR radio ensemble recreates the colorful events surrounding the infamous evening, including the full original broadcast. Complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-radio-play is a thrilling homage to the form's golden age and timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.

 

From Joe Landry, the same writer of the sold-out benefit performance, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Live Radio Play, War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast brings the classic format of a radio drama to the Shannon Center stages once again.. The staged reading will be presented in the Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts Studio Theatre on the campus of Whittier College, 6760 Painter Avenue, Whittier, CA 90608.  

 

The production features Stephee Bonifacio, Gunner Joachim, Seamus Lagan, Ruben Sanchez, Sadie Recio, and Sydney Summers.

 

General admission ticket prices are $20.  Additional ticket information is available on the Ruth B. Shannon Center website: www.shannoncenter.org. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays,  June 21, 22, 28, and 29 at 7:30 pm.

 

The Enceladus Theatre Company is committed to presenting vivid, imaginative, and creative works of live theatre.  We are passionate theatre artists determined to challenge audiences throughout the southern California region.
