Special Event: War of the Worlds Live Reading

Second Performance Added: November 2nd at 8PM

On October 30th and November 2nd, Harbor Arts will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the original radio broadcast of Orson Welles' War of the Worlds with a staged reading at the Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan. Once you walk in the door you'll step back in time. Actors and theater volunteers will be dressed in 1930's attire and even the food and spirits will be offered at 'vintage' prices. Really! But, don't look for Vodka or bottled water.....they didn't exist here in the 30's.

The original broadcast, adapted for radio and stage by Howard Koch from the novel by H.G. Wells, was presented by Orson Welles as the Halloween episode of the Mercury Theatre On the Air Series. It was intended to be a hoax, but sent widespread panic across the nation as many believed that earth was actually being invaded by martians!

The staged event will be recorded and broadcast on WRHC the following evening, October 31st at 7 pm.

Show time October 30th: 7:30 PM
Show time November 2nd: 8:00 PM

Tickets: $15

Student tickets: $10

Reserved seating.....save your seat and enjoy the festivities before and after the show! Seats will be assigned upon arrival at the theater.
