LBSC’s anniversary presentation of Orson Welles’ classic radio show, with live sound effects and music performed by the cast. The original 1938 broadcast covered the Martians invading the earth and created a nation-wide panic as a result. On the Sunday, October 29th performance of The War of the Worlds, the Planetary Society’s Mat Kaplan (Host of Planetary Radio) will open the show with his popular “State of the Universe” presentation. The radio play will follow.
Dec 21 - Dec 23 2017
The Long Beach Shakespeare Company will present the classic 1939 radio edition of A Christmas Carol. It was originally produced by Orson Welles for his Campbell's Playhouse (which is what The Mercury Theatre on the Radio became after The War of the Worlds broadcast. The Mercury Theatre saved their weekly series from cancellation with the success of that broadcast, and won a sponsor, Campbell's Soup). This Christmas broadcast was an annual tradition, first performed on Christmas Eve, 1939, starring Lionel Barrymore as Scrooge.
