HS Drama Club presents “War of the Worlds – The Panic Broadcast” on Nov. 5 & 6

on November 3, 2021

The Monroe-Woodbury High School Drama Club is proud to present its 2021 fall production of War of the Worlds – The Panic Broadcast. The play tells the incredible true story of a 1938 radio drama about an alien invasion that caused real-life panic in the streets when listeners thought it was a news broadcast. Our play tells the story of a recreation of the events surrounding the infamous evening ten years after the fact, including the full original broadcast, complete with vintage commercials and sound effects. It is not only an homage to the golden age of radio, but also a timely reminder of what fear can do to a society.

We will be presenting BOTH live and on-demand via an online streaming service – so you can watch this from the comfort of your home, or join us in the high school auditorium to watch our live production! Or both!
