War of the Worlds
75th Anniversary of the original Mercury Radio Theatre broadcast
Written by Howard Koch, produced by arrangement with Anne Koch
On Sunday, October 30, 1938, millions of radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they learned of the Martians’ ferocious and seemingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran out of their homes screaming while others packed up their cars and fled.

Though what the radio listeners heard was a portion of Orson Welles’ adaptation of the well-known book, War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells, many of the listeners believed what they heard on the radio was real.

Join us to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the original Mercury Radio Theatre broadcast as MAS Community Theatre presents a staged production of the broadcast.
