PLEASE NOTE:  It Came From Mars contains adult language, may not be suitable for younger audiences.


In September we bring you It Came From Mars by Joseph Zettelmaier.

It’s October 30, 1938. The members of Farlowe’s Mystery Theatre Hour are in rehearsal for their weekly radio show when they hear an alarming announcement come over the radio – Martians have landed! The actors fly into hysterics, barricading themselves in the studio, not expecting to live to see the next day. Passions ignite, secret identities are revealed and slapstick mayhem ensues when a washed-up director, his drama queen Ex, a wanna-be war hero, a ditzy actress, and a German sound effects wiz all think they are about to be annihilated by men from Mars.  You’re not going to want to miss this outrageous comedy directed by Anthony Quaranta!

Performed at 301 Grove Street, Miller Center Theater
