Whether or not it actually created the mass hysteria reported by the print media, when Orson Welles decided that Martians should invade the sleepy town of Grover's Mill, New Jersey, on October 30, 1938, he and The Mercury Theatre on the Air created a cultural phenomenon. In the current media climate, with news outlets catering their stories to niche audiences, Welles' War of the Worlds is as relevant as ever. Whether you choose to consider the ideas on a grand scale, or simply want to hear Professor Pierson flee the invading enemy as it terrorizes the eastern seaboard, join us as we bring this historic Wellesian story to life.

Doors open at 7:15 for this general admission live theatrical performance. The show is expected to run approx. 70 min. If the show does not sell out, tickets will be available for sale at the door with cash or credit card.
