About this show

Three Cat Productions is thrilled to announce a special Halloween performance of HG Wells's "The War of the Worlds". This special performance will feature Rick Kogan and Rob Dorn with all proceeds benefiting the Skokie Theatre. The War of the Worlds was originally performed on the radio, October 30, 1938 as part of the Mercury Theatre on the Air. Directed and narrated by Orson Welles, the 60 minute broadcast was presented as a series of news bulletins suggesting an actual alien invasion. Reportedly, the broadcast caused wide spread panic specifically for those who missed the opening explanation. Come find out why radio listeners where in a panic. "The War of the Worlds" featuring WGN Radio Personality Rick Kogan and Chicago's celebrated performer Rob Dorn will be performed at Skokie Theatre Music Foundation. All proceeds benefit the Skokie Theatre Music Foundation.
