The War of the Worlds Radio Show

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Campbell County Public Library invites you to bring your lawn chair and listen to this classic radio show on the front steps of CCPL. Popcorn served! "The War of the Worlds" is an episode of the American radio drama anthology series "The Mercury Theatre on the Air" directed and narrated by Orson Welles as an adaptation of H.G. Wells’ novel "The War of the Worlds" (1898). It was performed and broadcast live as a Halloween episode on October 30, 1938, over the Columbia Broadcasting System radio network. The episode became famous for allegedly causing panic among its listening audience. This event is part of CCPL’s Adult Summer Reading Program: A Universe of Stories.
