Inherit the Wind is an American play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee, which debuted in 1955. The story fictionalizes the 1925 Scopes “Monkey” Trial as a means to discuss the then-contemporary McCarthy trials. The debate over creationism versus evolution has contemporary resonance, as evidenced by the play’s numerous revivals and screen adaptations decades after its initial theatrical run.
War of the Worlds will be presented as a live radio broadcast on Halloween at the Janesville Performing Arts Center and simulcast on WCLO. Stage One is using the famous Mercury Theatre adaptation.
All roles are available:
Inherit the Wind: 21 men, 6 women, 2 boys, 1 girl, extras
War of the Worlds: 20+ roles for men and women
All audition materials will be provided. The rehearsal schedule is flexible and will be generated following the casting of each show.
