War of the World Auditions


The Play:
A true story behind one of the most brilliantly creative and terrifying moments in radio broadcasting history. The play tells the story of the arrogant Orson Welles and his collaborators at CBS as they produced the now infamous broadcast. Recreating moments from the notorious radio drama, including live foley (sound effects) on stage, the cast also recreates the drama behind the scenes!

The Characters:
There are six actors in the show, 3M, 3F.  All actors will play multiple roles, including Orson Welles, John Houseman, announcers, operators, radio play actors, citizens who listened to the broadcast, etc.  All roles are paid a stipend.

Audition Dates: August 1-2, 2023 – 7:00-9:00pm
Callbacks: August 5, 2023 – 10:00am-1:00pm, by invitation only.
Location: Boardroom, Covey Center for the Arts, 425 W Center St. Provo.
