War of the Worlds: A Radio Play
In 1938, the panic inspired by Welles made War of the Worlds perhaps the most notorious event in American broadcast history (www.slate.com). You've heard tales of widespread terror when Orson Welles aired a fictional newscast of a Martian invasion of earth. Now come and experience the show from inside the radio studio, watching the actors, seeing the sound effects artist at work. The night will include:
- Costume Contest with prizes ($5.00 discount on tickets if you arrive in a costume!)
- 50/50 Raffle
- Complimentary Candy
- Other Goodies and Prizes
The Night They Invented Champagne
An evening of American song standards including: Fascinatin' Rhythm, Fly Me to the Moon, Buffalo Gals, Moon River, and many more including audience choice!
Featuring soprano Karen Nussbaum with baritone Ron McCutchan and pianist Jeannie Brown.
