Jamestown, ND (KCSi- T.V. News) — The Jamestown High School Theater production is set for November 7,8, 2013 at 7-p.m., at the high school theater.
The play “The Panic Broadcast of 1938,” by Michael Druce takes a look at the community of Misty Valley, Pennsylvania 1938.
The play selected is in honor of the 75th anniversary of the famous radio broadcast by H. G. Wells, the War of the Worlds.
On Tuesday’s Wayne Byers Show on CSi Cable 2, three cast members talked about the production: Sierra Gordon who plays the male role of “Lester,” Kelsey Becker, who also plays a male role, “Hank,” and Jacob Brownell who plays, “Tom.”
The play follows the citizens of the town as they go about their normal life,(young people wanting to move away to see more of the world, young couples learning about love, families changing) until they hear the broadcast of the radio telling about an invasion from Mars.
Panic then ensues. The town moves into action to try to save themselves and the community and the confusion grows.
The play in a small town in 1938 reminds the audience of times past, and allows the audience a night of laughter and fun.
Tickets at the door are: $6 for adults, $4 for students, and free admission to those under five years of age.
