Grover’s Mill Under Attack Again!
70th Anniversary of War of the Worlds Broadcast
It was October 30, 1938 and actor/director Orson Welles decided to use H.G. Wells’ 1898 novel, War of the Worlds for the Halloween segment of his radio series,“Mercury Theatre on the Air.” An estimated 1.7 million listeners tuned in that night to hear what sounded like a real life invasion of a small town in New Jersey.
On October 30, 2008, the City of Carrollton, Texas will sponsor a reenactment of the famous radio show for the 70th Anniversary. Come to the Carrollton Library “Story Time” room at the Josey/Hebron branch, at 7 pm and listen as the town of Grover’s Mill again faces alien attack. Admission is free.
There will also be a special matinee performance for those who miss the anniversary night performance at the same location on Saturday November 1st at 1 pm.
The Sagittarii Theatre Company-is produced by E. Gaston Huckabay and directed by Natalia Corres. The actors include Brian Dakota, Boyd Mooney, J.R. Peacock, Elfriede Russell, and Dr. Daniel Viamonte. Technical Direction and Special Effects by E. Gaston Huckabay and Brian Higginbotham.
