Broadcast from New York's Mercury Theatre in 1938, this infamous radio play, based on the novel by H. G. Wells, had many terrified listeners convinced that an actual alien invasion of Earth was taking place. Come, sit back and enjoy this adaptation by Howard E. Koch, co-writer of Casablanca, and this original script detailing the frightening tale of an extraterrestrial takeover. This show will transport you back to 1938, complete with sound effects, original art projections, and exciting live performances from TCOE student actors.
After the show, ticket holders are invited to join us in the Planetarium for the fall night sky presentation to learn about the constellations that are visible this season.
This event is a special presentation of the Planetarium & Science Center and TCOE Theatre Company, known jointly as the Stage and Space Collaborative.
