SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

The Atlanta Radio Theatre Company (ARTC) will present H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds: The Untold Story” at the MJCCA on Sun., Oct. 20.

The ARTC is dedicated to preserving, promoting, performing, and educating people about the art of radio drama.

“With the advent of television, the popularity of radio theatre has waned,” said Brian Kimmel, MJCCA Director of Arts & Culture. “But this talented group of writers, actors, and sound technicians in Atlanta has succeeded in maintaining the art and craft of audio drama.”

ARTC has been around since the early 1980s and its shows have been featured on a number of radio stations in Atlanta.

“But the best way to experience the ARTC is at a live show,” Kimmel said, “where you can see just how they craft their sound effects and manipulate microphone placement, creating adventures in sound.”

The upcoming program at the MJCCA will take place at the center’s Morris and Rae Frank Theatre, 5342 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody. Ticket prices: $10-$15.
