WAR OF THE WORLDS - The 1938 Radio Broadcast!

Adapted by Joe Landry

An alien invasion throws humanity into chaos in the classic sci-fi novel The War of the Worlds--but all it took to cause real-life panic in the streets was Orson Welles's 1938 radio adaptation, which listeners took for news. Your evening will include the full original broadcast. Complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects, this radio-play-within-a-radio-play is a thrilling homage to the form's golden age and timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.​

Directed by Frank Marquette of Theatre on the Road and featuring the talents of John Adair, Lawrence Miller, Sue Regan and Lydia Pidlusky.

Friday, October 27th at 7 pm

Sunday, October 29th at 3 pm
General admission $15, students and seniors $12
