Looking for something to do on a cold February weekend? Look no further. Siena Heights’ theatre program is putting on the show, “It Came From Mars” by Joseph Zettelmaur.

“It Came From Mars” revolves around a group of actors working on a radio show in New York in 1938. It is a show that references Orson Walle’s Mercury Theatre of the Air, a real radio show from back in the 1930s. They are focusing mainly on his Halloween broadcast “War of the Worlds.” Characters in the play are listening to the radio when they learn Martians and Hilarity ensures invaded the Earth. They are trying to figure out ways to continue to fight the end of the world.

Junior Danielle Lapointe from Rochester Hills, Mich., who is a theatre and speech communications major, took a break from rehearsal to help promote the play. Lapointe is playing the role of Maude Myrtles, who is a coordinating secretary at the HWQN radio station.

Lapointe said, “I am very excited to see the audience’s reactions to this show. It is a relatively new comedy for people of all ages that I’m sure is going to be a real crowd pleaser!”

The show is set to go on Feb. 1-2 at 7:30 p.m., with the final show on Feb. 3 at 2:30 p.m. in the Stubnitz Lab Theater.
