Synopsis

During the morning video announcements at Grover's Mill High, something crash lands in the football stadium. Something not of this Earth. Inspired by Orson Wells’ 1938 radio broadcast The War of the Worlds, this modern adaptation is designed to be rehearsed and performed live online. Through a series of Zoom calls, our morning-show hosts find themselves covering the biggest story in human history. Martians have landed and are taking over the Earth. Can our group of scrappy high-schoolers survive the invasion? This virtual show is perfect for Halloween! This show can be performed virtually or onstage.
