In Partnership with WHJE

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. Adapted by Howard E. Koch, co-writer of Casablanca, and directed and narrated by Orson Welles, this original script detailing the frightening tale of an extraterrestrial takeover is now available to bring to life onstage to thrill and chill audiences.

Christian Youth Theater actors will recreate this script, with each chilling word.  Recorded and edited by students at WHJE, this is sure to be a fan favorite!

Special thanks to the students at WHJE: Dominic James, Jess Cooper, Wil Courtney, Kayla Gaerte, Skylar Greaves, Sam Hawkins, Elizabeth Kneifel , Maylee O'Brien, and Joanna Thornburg
