War of the Worlds
The Teen Actors Guild reopens the Millennium Repertory Company’s 2020 season at the Manchester Arts Center with War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast, beginning August 7.
In 1948, the WBFR radio ensemble recreates the colorful events surrounding Orson Welles’s 1938 radio adaptation of the science-fiction classic, including the full original broadcast. Complete with commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-radio-play is a thrilling homage to the golden age of radio and a timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.
Directed by Landon Spangler, the cast includes Carter Cantrell, Ethan Cusick, Nik Dunavant, Karisha Glover, Madelyn Hansen, Maddison Helms, Travis Lawson, Tanner Maccaganone, Zach Smith, Zoe Stinson, and Sarah Turner. Stage manager is Colleen Wainright.
