Featuring Jeff Maschi and Michael Jarmus. With Alex Dawson. 

First performed in 1938, this radio drama, adapted from the classic H.G. Wells novel, is set in Grover Mills N.J. The play begins as a musical broadcast intermittently interrupted by news flashes about strange explosions on Mars and the landing of an alien  spacecraft on Earth.  The “news bulletins” , originally narrated by Orson Welles, led people to believe that there was an alien invasion in progress  - causing panicked evacuation throughout the US. Especially in New Jersey!  Don’t miss this reenactment with period Costumes! Theatrical Lighting! Vintage Commercials! Golden Age radio Equipment! Fog Effects and more!

Registration required. Adults only
