War of the Worlds

The infamous 1938 broadcast that brought terror to its radio listeners will be live at the Studio Theater at Cape Fear Community College and will also be streaming live on WHQR 91.3! The radio show, originally narrated by Orson Welles, caused a panic as listeners believed the apocalyptic tale was a live news story. (And we thought Facebook being down was bad).

Friday, October 30th at 8pm.
Tickets to the performance are $25.00 + taxes and fees and $5.00 for students.
For tickets and more information, visit Cape Fear Community College’s website.
