    • About The Show: Spooky ! Exciting ! Spies, murder, love, and other trademarks of Alfred Hitchcock come to life in the style of a
      1940s radio broadcast of the master of suspense's earlier films. With The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps, Vintage Hitchcock: A Live Radio Play is a triple feature, complete with vintage commercials, that recreates a daring train chase, a serial killer’s ominous presence, and a devastating explosion through the magic of live sound effects and musical underscoring. This spooky exciting piece is set in a 1940’s radio station. A short children’s Halloween performance will be presented in the afternoon.
    • Show Dates: Saturday, October 24 at dusk in Arlington Depot Park, Kearny. A short children’s program and full rehearsal will take place earlier in the day
    • About The Audition: Actors will read from sides provided and take part in some simple improv exercises.
    • Characters: Co-Directors Michael Haefner and Brandi-Leigh Miller are looking for good speaking voices (18 years +) for the many characters in the three stories. Some characters have one or two lines each, some are main characters. Actors will play more than one role, so the ability to do multiple voices or dialects is a plus, but not a must.
      Auditions are open to all community members ages 18 or older. Sides will be available on the night of the auditions and below. Be prepared to list all conflicts.
