Salt City Radio Players presents “War of the Worlds” LIVE

The date is October 30, 1938, and the country is enveloped in a mass hysteria caused by the news of an alien invasion on Earth.

No lie. It really happened.

A live radio production of Orson Welles’ adaptation of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” scared the bejeezus out of people across the United States.

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of the original production (not in celebration of the mass hysteria) and just in time to scare the bejeezus out of you for Halloween, Clark Planetarium welcomes the Salt City Radio Players back to the Hansen Dome Theatre.

But this production of “War of the Worlds” holds something special in store for the Utah audience. Paired with stunning imagery on our full-dome screen and with a couple of twists to the story, you won’t want to miss this rendition of Orson Welles’ “War of the Worlds”.


When: October 29th or October 30th
Time: 7:00pm

  1. I can’t believe I missed this event! Are there any plans to host the Salt City Radio Players at the Planetarium again? I hope so!

  2. Hi Michael, guess what? Since we had such high demand for tickets to this event the Salt City Radio Players are doing a reprisal tomorrow evening, Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 7:00pm. Tickets will be available today starting at 10:30am at the Clark Planetarium ticketing desk, for free as usual. Also, we are definitely looking forward to next year and more possibilities of pairing with the Players.
