Center Stage At Southampton Arts Center Present Joe Landry’s War Of The Worlds: The Panic Broadcast, A Live Radio Play

Center Stage at Southampton Arts Center will present Joe Landry’s “War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast” on October 21 and 22.

Performance times are Saturday at 2 and 7 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Michael Disher directs this live radio adaptation of the H G Wells classic novel.

“The War of the Worlds” has been both popular (having never been out of print) and influential, spawning numerous feature films, radio dramas, a record album, comic book adaptations, television series, and sequels or parallel stories by other authors. It was memorably dramatized in the 1938 radio program directed by and starring Orson Wells, that reportedly caused panic among listeners who did not know that the events were fictional.

Joe Landry’s radio play, “War of the Worlds: The Panic Broadcast, A Live Radio Play” highlights the day leading up to the infamous Halloween 1938 broadcast – and its unpredictable aftermath.

“War of the Wolds: The Panic Broadcast, A Live Radio Play” features Richard Adler, Daniel Becker, Richard Browning, Susan Cincotta, Joey Giovingo, Vincenzo Harty, Jenifer Maxson, Matthew O’Connor, Franco Pistritto, and Michaal Lyn Schepps.

General admission tickets are $20 and SAC member admission is $15. All tickets are available at
