WLRN Radio Theatre: War of the Worlds

South Florida is preparing for an alien invasion this summer! The Seminole Theatre, in partnership with WLRN Radio Theatre and Arts Radio Network Theatre Project, presents a pair of popular science fiction stories brought to life on stage, sure to thrill science fiction lovers of all ages!

These performances are accurate recreations of the live radio plays from the golden age of radio, with professional actors performing multiple roles and utilizing authentic sound effect devices. These plays are very interactive, with the audience providing many of the sound effects themselves! Each event will include a post-show Talk back session, where the audience can ask questions about the play, its history and the production. In addition, our friends at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium are providing us with Science Fiction vs. Science Facts for each show program, written by their expert education team. They're sure to spark your curiosity!

On Sunday, October 30, 1938 millions of radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they learned the Martians' ferocious and seemingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran out of their homes screaming while others packed up their cars and fled.

Though what the radio listeners heard was a portion of the Mercury Theatre on the Air production of Orson Welles" adaptation of the well-known book, War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells, many of the listeners believed what they heard on the radio was real. WRLN Radio Theatre brings the original script back to life, reimagined and live at the Seminole Theatre!

Tickets and information are also available at the Seminole Theatre box office, 786-650-2073 or at 18 N Krome Ave, Homestead, FL. The box office is open Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-6:00pm
