“War of the Worlds” Opens on October 5th!

 

The Winters Theatre Company (WTC) will be presenting Howard E. Koch’s “The War of the Worlds” in October.  Tickets are now available for purchase; click on the button to your right!

On Sunday evening, October 30, 1938, Orson Welles caused a nationwide panic with his broadcast of “War of the Worlds”—a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth.  This was prime time in the golden age of radio, when millions of Americans had their radios turned on.  Perhaps as many as a million radio listeners believed that a real Martian invasion was underway, and panic broke out across the country.

WTC will re-create the panic of that evening in this radio show drama at the Winters Community Center, 201 Railroad Ave. in Winters the first two weekends of October, Friday October 5th through Sunday October 7th and Friday October 12th through Sunday October 14th.  For the opening show on Friday October 5th, there will be a gala performance, including dessert and champagne; all tickets for that show only will be $15 and the event will start at 7:30pm.

Remaining shows will be on Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Ticket prices will be $12 for adults and $10 for seniors and children 12 and under.
