Union Repertory Theatre to Present Double Feature at Admiral Twin
For the first time, the Union High School Repertory Theatre will present a double feature at the Admiral Twin Drive-in, 7355 E. Easton St., on Tuesday, Oct. 6, featuring performances of “War of the Worlds” and “Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.”
Gates will open at 6:30 p.m. and the movie will start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $5 per person (not for the entire vehicle).
“As we prepare for our first show of the year, I’m so excited to record ‘War of the Worlds’ and ‘Monsters are Due on Maple Street’ to bring to the Admiral Twin Drive-in so that our audience can socially distance in their cars and still see their children perform,” said Troy Powell, drama instructor at the High School.
Union’s “War of the Worlds” will be a retelling of the famous 1938 radio drama that created some real-life panic when members of the public thought the alien invasion was real. “The Monster are Due on Maple Street” is a retelling of a famous 1960 “Twilight Zone” episode in which neighbors react to a mysterious power outage some believe to be caused by a meteor or maybe even aliens.
So expect a lot of fun with some B-movies by A-list Union actors.
