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.
The cast of the staged reading will include: Keith Eisenstadt as Welles, Sam Burke, Stephen Roger Fox, Chris Grant, Josh Knauer, Edward Lehmann, Tom McGuigan, Matt Melenas, Bob Stemm and Zach Wayson.
The production will also incorporate puppetry to help create the illusion of a Martian attack. Puppeteers Dan Ray Polson and Mary Mahoney will lend their skills to those roles.
Produced through special arrangement with Playscripts Inc.
