War of the Worlds

Pegasus Theater Co. | War of the Worlds
It was 77 years ago (this Friday) that the radio broadcast of H.G. Wells tale, The War of the Worlds, sent the American public into a frenzy. Martians invading New Jersey would do that. Whether the accounts of said hysteria were exaggerated or not, it stirs thought and conversation still today. With Halloween steadily approaching, The Pegasus Theater Company is presenting a mixed media play at the Graton Community Club on October 30th and 31st. This one-of-a-kind production will be based off of the 1938 radio script as well as the reported panic. A live Foley artist creating sound effects, seven actors and mixed media art will comprise the evening's surrealistic-like setting. Tickets are $15 on Friday and pay-what-you-can on Halloween. These type of artistic happenings help to enrich local community and provide a form of entertainment that is in contrast to our digital short term attention spans. See you at the performance.
