Park Players Production of the War of the Worlds – The Panic Broadcast – February 12, at 7:00 p.m. and 13, at 2:00 p.m.
The Park Players Theatre Company will present The War of the Worlds—The Panic Broadcast, in a pair of shows on 88-1 the Park.
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 mistook for actual news. The Park Players Theatre Company radio ensemble will recreate the colorful events surrounding the infamous evening, complete with vintage commercials and live sound effects.
The broadcast will air on Friday February 12, at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday February 13, at 2:00 p.m. on 88-1 the Park.
