Eighty years ago, on the night of October 30th, 1938, millions of Americans believed that Earth was being invaded by Martians. It was the result of a radio show produced on CBS by The Mercury Theatre Players, under the direction of Orson Welles. How did they manage to convince so many people of the unthinkable? And what was it like to be caught in the frenzy of terror that many experienced that night?
We'll take you inside the CBS studio to recreate the broadcast and the slow realization by the actors and crew of the chaos they had unleashed. You will also follow three stories of people who were listening that night, certain that the world was coming to an end.
Join us this October as we relive the infamous night of the Invasion from Mars! Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30, Sunday matinees at 2 PM.
