It may not terrify the nation the way Orson Welles’ original radio broadcast did.
Even so, the Panida Playhouse’s adaptation of the famous “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast is sure to add thrills and chills to this Halloween season. And you could be a part of it.
“We’re looking for an energetic ensemble looking forward to recreating this story,” said director Robert Moore. “We’re recreating an old nostalgia that will bring a lot of fun and a lot of diverse characters that will let actors step outside themselves.”
Auditions open for the play, directed by Moore and produced by Becky Revak, 6 p.m. this Monday, Sept. 11, and Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the Panida Little Theater. The creative team will cast 11 roles and need around seven men and four women. Actors should expect to play multiple roles. In addition, the play needs a crew to help with lights, sound and music.
Auditioners will not need to prepare a monologue — material will be provided. Be prepared to identify possible schedule conflicts with rehearsals or performances. “War of the Worlds” will be performed between Thursday, Oct. 26, and Sunday, Oct 29, at the Panida Theater.
