Seventy-four years ago, America was in a frenzy when a radio show convinced listeners than an alien invasion was underway.
On Tuesday, the Tennessee State Company recreated that infamous broadcast. Members of the company performed the original radio broadcast of the H.G. Wells classic, The War of the Worlds.
The performance even brought back memories for some audience members.
"There is a gentleman in the audience tonight who, as a three-year-old, his mother ran him out of the house into the yard to look up and try to find the martians," said Tom Parkhill.
