Cast yourself back to the year 1938. Hitler marches into Austria, while Britain, France and Italy signed the Munich Pact, allowing Germany to partition Czechoslovakia. Franklin D Roosevelt is in office and has just established a national minimum wage. Our Town by Thornton Wilder won the Pulitzer Prize in drama. Teflon is developed. The New York Yankees defeat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 during the world series. And on October 30, 1938, Orson Welles broadcast his rendition of H.G. Wells’s (no relation) The War of the Worlds over the airways, panicking the populace with tales of alien war machines from the planet Mars terrorizing New York and New Jersey. As we close out the school year, the Saint Joseph Prep Phoenix Players offer their own rendition of the infamous broadcast for your listening pleasure.
