'Invasion from Mars'

PORTSMOUTH — Phylloxera Productions and The Players’ Ring is pleased to announce the seventy-fifth anniversary recreation of the most notorious radio broadcast of all time - Invasion from Mars!

Seventy five years ago, on the evening of October 30, 1938, CBS radio, and The Mercury Theatre Players, presented a radio adaptation of The War of the Worlds by H. G. Wells. Within minutes of the beginning of that broadcast, as much as twenty-five percent of the population of this country believed that Earth was being invaded by Mars. Pockets of pandemonium broke out across America. This October, Invasion from Mars! reproduces that broadcast exactly as it happened, minute by minute - occasionally pausing to tell the stories of some listeners who believed that the broadcast was real.

Invasion from Mars runs October 11 to October 27 at The Players’ Ring, 105 Marcy Street, Portsmouth. Performances are 8:00 p.m. Fri.-Sat nights; 7:00 p.m. Sundays October 13 and 20; and 2:00 p.m. on Sun., October 27.

Tickets are $12.00 General or $12.00 for Students, Seniors, Members. For ticket reservations, call 603-436-8123, or visit
