War of the Worlds: 80th Anniversary Live Radio-play performance
October 30, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
October 30 marks the 80th anniversary of Orson Welles’ panic-inducing “War of the Worlds” radio production. This October, MPL librarians will be recreating the radio-play live on stage at Cornerstone Center for the Arts. Actors will emulate the sound effect techniques as they each play their parts. Come share in this fascinating bit of literary culture, and one of the world’s best first examples of “fake news”.
The event is free of charge, but your kind donations to MPL that evening will be gratefully accepted. Special thanks to Cornerstone for partnering with the library for this fun and unique event.
