*War of the Worlds* in Pullman

For the 70th anniversary of the night when Orson Welles scared the bejeezus out of people, Pullman Civic Theatre is putting on an adapted stage version of what it might have been like to have been in the radio studio that night in 1938. *War of the Worlds* (just in time for Halloween!) will feature Foley sound effects (like eerie noises obtained by vibrating the top rims of glass vases) to imitate the whirring of Martian spaceships overhead, and so on. They’re even going to take commercial breaks and advertise things like pie in old-fashioned ways. The Oct. 30 performance marks the 70th anniversary. Visit
Oct. 29 at 6:30 pm, Oct. 30-31 at 7:30. Nov. 1 at 7:30 pm
1120 NW Nye St., Pullman
