Upper Delivers “War of the Worlds” at The Schiff Center

Upper School theater students will perform the classic radio-style play “War of the Worlds” on Oct. 30 and 31. The performances will take place at 8 p.m. on Oct. 30 and at 3 p.m. on Oct. 31, live in The Schiff Center before a limited audience of 75 in the 500-person capacity auditorium in order to maintain social distance, said theater teacher Marc Raia. Tickets can be purchased and reserved in advance online by going to: “Our ‘War of the Worlds’ production features the original 1938 live radio script from the Orson Welles Mercury Theatre on the Air version,” said Raia. “In addition to our student actors and technicians, a group of Jason Knarr’s Upper School art students are exercising their considerable talents to create some live surprises in this production. Our Seven Hills students have been working very hard to continue to create theater safely during this very challenging time.”
