Tune in to a live drive-in theatre production this weekend
After over 200 social-distanced audience members joined Theatre Wesleyan for the outdoor theatre production, At A Distance, the Six Plays At Six Feet fall semester continues with a live drive-in theatre production from Friday, Oct. 9 through Sunday, Oct. 11 in the Administration Building parking lot. Vintage Hithcock: A Live Radio Play is written by Joe Landry and inspired by two early films by Alfred Hitchcock: The Lodger and Sabotage.
All plans and information are subject to change and announcements will be made in the event adjustments are, or need to be, made for the safety of our faculty, staff, students and audience.
Here are five reasons to see the upcoming play:
1. Audience members will be social distanced ... in their car!
All it takes is a ticket and a vehicle! Just load in, drive in and tune in on your car radio for a unique live theatre experience. Tickets are available for $20 per carload or $5 per passenger. It is recommended that everyone purchase tickets in advance by going online to txwes.edu/theatretickets. You are welcome to enjoy food or non-alcoholic drinks in your car. Don't have a car? Give us a call after you purchase your ticket!
2. A cast of seven will recreate the Hitchcock films
The cast members will be performing live and social distanced in their own recording studio booths that will be built outside the Schollmaier building. Five radio players will perform as multiple characters in the Hitchcock films. Plus, we have two foley artists who will be using props and household items to recreate the sound effects for the cinematic moments like thunder, car chases, creaking doors, walking through gravel and more.
3. Experience a live event
With the current conditions, live in-person events have been scarce. If you feel comfortable enough to join us, we would be delighted to have you! Enjoy a night of live theatre with your family and friends from the comfort of your motor vehicle.
4. Just in time for the fall and Halloween season
Hitchcock is known as the master of suspense. What better time to present some unique and abstract Hitchcock films than in the fall evening under the stars right before Halloween?
5. Support TXWES students
Support a group of talented young theatre artists who have persevered to provide live entertainment in an environment that promotes and practices safety. Our students have been ready to present theatre with a burst of creative energy that we hope you all are able to see. You can also see one of the other Six Plays At Six Feet productions this semester!
Performances will be held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 7:30 p.m. This production will not have matinee performances and will not be available to stream.
