Serious Theater of The Dalles presents a live presentation of the iconic 1938 CBS radio broadcast by the Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater on the Air which caused widespread panic across America as people thought that we were actually being invaded by Martians. This performance is a benefit to support restoration of the Phelps-d'Autrement pipe organ at Zion Lutheran Church.

Admission is by donation, and all donations are tax deductible. Doors open at 1:30 PM and the performance lasts approximately 75 minutes without intermission.

This presentation features live sound effects and music.
