War of the Worlds

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 6:30 & 8:30 p.m. and Sundays, 4 & 6 p.m. Continues through Sept. 11 2016

The original radio broadcast of War of the Worlds was not an act of glorious shenanigans that sent a million New Jersey residents into a panic over a presumed-real Martian invasion. By all accounts, listeners knew that the adaptation of H.G. Wells' 1897 science fiction novel was indeed fiction. The audience for THEATREdART and Fire Thieves Studio's devised performance of War of the Worlds opening tonight at the Cottonwood Center for the Arts knows the story is fiction, but that doesn't mean they'll have any less fun with it. Director Charles Redding has assembled an ensemble to examine the themes and ideas explored in Wells' novel in new ways. 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sundays, through Sept. 11, David H. Lord Theater, 427 E. Colorado Ave., pay-what-you-can first weekend, then $5-$15, cottonwoodcenterforthearts.com. — Griffin Swartzell

Price: $5-$15
