SOLD OUT! We celebrated World Audio Drama Day and the 80th anniversary of the original broadcast of this classic radio drama. Our re-imagined performance was inspired by the 1898 H. G. Wells novel The War of the Worlds, and the 1938 radio dramatization by Orson Welles and The Mercury Theatre on the Air.

Live performance by Metropolitan Performing Arts actors and other community volunteers at Kiggins Theatre in downtown Vancouver, Washington. Streamed live on KXRW-FM, Vancouver's community radio.
