In October of 1938, Orson Wells and the Mercury Theatre of the Air presented a broadcast that would prove to be one of the most memorable events in radio history; The War of the Worlds. While presented as a radio play, many people thought it was a real news broadcast and wide-spread panic ensued. While many people were upset when they found out the truth, this broadcast showed the power of radio at that time.
On October 7th, the Noblesville Preservation Alliance will present a re-creation of that broadcast live on stage at Preservation Hall in Noblesville. A cast of 10+ people will be needed for the performance and auditions will be open to the public, beginning August 15th. If you would like more information, or to schedule an audition time, send an email to [email protected]
