Saturday, October 27, 2007
Afternoon Matinee: 2:00 PM
Evening Performance: 7:30 PM.

PRINCETON: And now, with Halloween drawing nigh, it's time once again for the David Sarnoff Library's War of the Worlds! Yes, the Big Broadcast of 2007 takes place on Saturday, October 27, in a matinee at 2 p.m. and an evening performance at 7:30 p.m. Staged by the Hunterdon Radio Theatre's veteran cast and broadcast over 16 antique radios by the New Jersey Antique Radio Club, Orson Welles and Howard Koch's adaptation of H. G. Wells's story of the Martian attack on Earth takes you back to a time before the internet and television, when your ears and mind filled in what you could not see. Staged in Sarnoff Corporation's Auditorium at 201 Washington Road in Princeton, New Jersey, just a mile from the Martians' 1938 landing site at Grover's Mill, this annual fundraising event is guaranteed to entertain, educate, and enlighten you!

In addition, acclaimed thereminist Kip Rosser will accompany electronic musicians Gregg Waltzer and Howard Moscovitz of the Martian Radio Orchestra for a half hour of appropriate "mood music" before each show!
