On Friday we covered the final Kingman High School football game of the season. It was October 30, the seventy-seventh anniversary of the radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. In celebration of Audio Drama Day, we played a couple of clips from that broadcast.
We also invited members of the KHS drama club to perform in our booth. They delivered excerpts of Trifles, by Susan Glaspell, and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, Abridged. They will be performing both plays at the school this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 5, 6, and 7, at 7 p.m.
Here is a look at our halftime radio theater. The audio didn’t quite fit with the video, but I cut this together as well as I could.
Big thanks to director Clare Schroeder and her actors, Denise Wiley, Hannah Heiden, Adam Gatliff, and Daniel Pozenel. Thanks also to play-by-play man Tom Erickson.
