Small Parts Players – Act I & Act II, began its first season of production in 2000 and has been going strong ever since! This after-school program puts on 2 to 4 theatre productions per school year and is a great way for children to build skills in the performing arts. While given the opportunity to explore this creative form of expression, this program also helps children develop reading and speaking skills through performance. Small Parts Players is offered to children in two age groups:
The Act I age group, 7 through 11 years of age, meet in the Lyric Annex, 516 Chestnut Street, Virginia, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m., during the school year.
The Act II age group, 12 through 18 years of age, is currently on hiatus.

Northern Stage Works relives the, ‘War of the Worlds’
In 1938, Orson Welles causes a nationwide panic with his broadcast of “War of the Worlds” – a realistic radio dramatization of a Martian invasion of Earth that many listeners took for real news.
Perhaps as many as a million radio listeners believed that a real Martian invasion was underway. Panic broke out across the country. In New Jersey, terrified civilians jammed highways seeking to escape the alien marauders. People begged police for gas masks to save them from the toxic gas and asked electric companies to turn off the power so that the Martians wouldn’t see their lights. One woman ran into an Indianapolis church where evening services were being held and yelled, “New York has been destroyed! It’s the end of the world! Go home and prepare to die!”
Don’t miss this Radio Play!
